South Florida's world wide Travel Guide! Now with streaming video!







If your coming to South Florida via one of the major airlines, you got either Miami International or Fort Lauderdale International airports.  Given a choice, Pick Fort Lauderdale, trust me!


Miami International Airport

If you’re traveling by plane into Miami, you’ll most likely fly into Miami International Airport (MIA), the only airport in Greater Miami that provides scheduled service. The other options are air-charter services or the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport, a smaller facility about 30 minutes north of downtown Miami. 

Centrally located seven miles from downtown Miami, MIA has more airlines flying into it (140) than any other airport in the country. This gateway to the Americas handles 34 million passengers a year. Averaging more than 15,000 departures and landings per day, MIA makes non-stop or 1-stop connections to 200 cities on five continents. Whew! With numbers like that, you’re sure to be able to get a flight into this bustling international hotspot. Also, at the airport you’ll hear a cacophony (or symphony, depending on your view) of tongues. 

Fort Lauderdale International Airport

Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport!
320 Terminal Drive, Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33315 

The Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport serves millions of travelers from all over the world. Also known as FLL, the airport is ideally located in the heart of Broward County just minutes from Fort Lauderdale and white sandy beaches.
