    Post Miami Show Help-Last Minute Plans

    My wife and I are trying to pull off a quick trip to Florida for the show on Saturday (16th). We will only be in town for about 24 hours. Flying into Lauderdale - how close is airport to any show venues? Any ideas about an "available" hotel room close by. Is transportation difficult/expensive to come by on the weekend? Any and all help would be appreciated!

    Tim I'm afraid you may have a hard time getting a rental car. I rented mine about 2 months ago and still had to make a few calls. I'm not even sure if you will find a room. I might suggest the Holiday Inn on Collins Ave. It's about 1/2(walking distance) mile from the Convention Center and still located in South Beach. Good Luck. Maybe I'll see you there. I'm staying at the Marriott where the in water show is.

    From the FLL airpot to the convention center is approx 14 mi depending on which way you go. Hotels are going to be a little hard to find. If you find one the price will be real ripe. Hospitality even less. If it's only for 24 hrs....hell you can sleep on the benches.... ]car rentals are always around ... but at a premium
