Official Miami Port Information Thread-5/1 update
 
Miami is a fantastic city I had the pleasure of growing up in. I hope you get to enjoy it as much as I did.

First though, if all the locals can help on this thread the same way the Seattle crew did it will make it that much better of a thread. All the locals that sned me things to post get the joy of seeing their name in this thread as well.

PM me any info to add to a topic- I will cut and paste it to the right section. In your PM let me know the number of where it should go, that helps tremendously.

Those that have sent things to adsd to this thread include:

Please completely explore the websites given before you ask questions. You would be surprised how many people don't look at links and ask questions that are easily found on the links.

All help from locals is requested and appreciated.

Places to Eat
 
You absolutely have to try a Cuban sandwich and platanos maduros. I miss those two things the most.
Someone needs to find the best place to get one near the port.
