The Miami International Airport offers all the people who arrive through its gates the opportunity to thoroughly explore everything that southern Florida has to offer. While you can easily get to downtown Miami and Miami Beach using public transportation (primarily buses and trams) from the Miami Airport, you will certainly want to rent a car to see more than just the city, including the jaw-dropping Everglades and a road trip through the Keys. Key West—the southernmost point of the continental United States—is located just 160 miles south of the Miami Airport along a very cool connection of bridges and well-maintained roads.
