    Okay, my first game in Miami this weekend. Need some advice.
    - I have a rental car, but debating whether I want to drive to the game or catch an UBER or bus. Any advice? is there a particular parking lot that is better ?
    - I'm staying at Hotel Indigo in Miami Lakes. any cool places to visit/eat/drink after the game in that area? or is it boring.
    - Would like to spend an afternoon in seeing the sights. Should I head over to South Beach? or better suggestions?

    Head east on 203 ST. Head south on Biscayne Blvd. for a few blocks. The in a few blocks head east across the Lehman Causeway and south on Collins/A1A. You'll go through Sunny Isles down through Bal Harbor, Surfside and eventually South Beach. On the way back head through Alton road and cross via 395 causeway. This is the scenic route around town. You can either head north on Brickell ave (trough the financial district) and through to lower Biscayne downtown Miami, or south on US1 to south Miami/Kendall/Homestead.

    Didn't get a chance at work earlier, but here's what I was talking bout.

    Aqua is strictly scenic focusing on the beaches (everything starts here, but you can cut away to Coral if you wanna skip half of the waterfront scenery). You will have to U-turn at the end of Key Biscayne when you get to the "el farito".
    Coral Great to experience some of the city's diverse neighborhoods. This one is a clock-wise loop taking you around Coral Gables (to about Merrick Park), east down calle ocho, eventually making its way down to Brickell.
    Navy takes you "home" to Miami Lakes.

    edit: come to think of it, the better route is probably the reverse starting in Miami Lakes and heading south on the Palmetto. (Navy, then Orange/Aqua, then Aqua all the way up to the stadium)

    sweet, I'll give the reverse route a try. That'll let me go from game to hotel and then sight seeing

    Plenty of public parking depending on where you go. Get the PayByPhone app. It'll make life easier.
