    Default How do you get around Miami Beach?

    My observations of modes of transport this week:

    car
    Miami Beach Local bus or trolley
    skateboard
    rollerblades
    bicycle
    segway (eye roll: please don't)
    scooter

    Did I miss any? Sometimes every single one of these can be on the road at the same time. Grateful for the bike lanes

    You missed the most obvious - walking (at least if you are not American)

    I usually walk, or take the Citi bikes.
    If in a hurry I use Lyft or Uber.

    Unfortunately I am not there at the moment, though.

    Is it just me or are the seats on those Citi bikes really hard?? I prefer to walk though!

    Longboard;

    Random guy in a truck driving beside me joyfully informed me I was going 22MPH.

    Made me lol, he was so Happy.


    Jogging around is also epic; I get to see more action and the beauty of Sobe up close.

    Of course! Walking, I can't believe I forgot that. I walked home last night from Lincoln.

    Longboarding, ok I thought of that as skate board, but you're right, that's an option.

    We usually Uber because we can't get organized enough to do things that are walkable.

    I am loving Uber, very reasonably priced, and I meet some interesting characters in the driver's seat often!

    Jess I understand your interpretation, Longboards can reach much greater speeds, and are more comfortable to just cruise on.

    When i lived there, I walked. Now that I'm in Brickell it's typically drive to a parking garage, then Uber or walk depending on where I'm going.

    I uber a lot.

    I once saw someone surfing down Lincoln Rd during that huge flood. So there's another option also!
