When ? Uber or Lyft to the Port.

Budget a concern ? Likes ? Dislikes ?

Uber or Lyft would be your best bet.

As above, what do the grands like ? dislike ?

Depends on how much you want to see, if it’s just something to pass the time the I can recommend the duck tour which sets off from Miami Beach area near Lincoln road. It’s lots of fun and you get to see a few things with plenty of info given. Think the kids would be occupied with it aa it goes on both road and water so they’ll find that pretty cool I would think, then you could maybe go for something to eat at Lincoln road and browse the shops.

I would suggest you visit Miami Beach for Breakfast on Ocean Drive then Wynwood Walls.

It is "the place" in Miami and I'm sure everybody will enjoy strolling in the neighborhood.

You'll find, murals, art galleries, indoor playgrounds, restaurants...

Moving around with taxis or Uber/Lyft will be easy and you won't have to worry about parking space.

As far as the luggage are concerned, we always use Jet Service to transfer our bags from Port to Airport (and vice versa).

They pickup your bags when you disembark then deliver at the airport at the time you request.

You can contact Peter via email, he's always super helpful (customerservice@myjetservice.com).
