The Miami tramway, otherwise known as MetroMover, is the most convenient way to get to Bayside. Get off at the College / Bayside station then walk 3 minutes on 4th Street and you’re there! The Government Center metro/subway/tube station or known as Monorail is the closest to Bayside. Once down, allow 10 to 15 minutes of walking via 2nd or 3rd Street towards the sea. The bus lines that take you there are: 3 (this one also goes to Aventura Mall), 93 (only runs during the week), 95 (only runs during the week during peak hours), and no. 103, and no. 119. There is great parking we always use at the Bayside car park undeground. Check for the latest schedule on public transports as they may have change.  The Bayside Marketplace is right across from downtown or city center Miami with a plethora of shopping and restaurant/bars choices from all corners of the Earth. Also, a bit down on chic Brickell you now find plenty more newer shops at Brickell City Centre and the Mary Brickell Village.

Time change and do not know now, but for us back then ,it was a must stop on our go around road warrior trips in the area of Miami which is a lot more than just a city with about 7 different towns with Miami on their name. This one Bayside Marketplace is in Miami proper, and lots of family fun times. Hope you enjoy the post as I, and me will see for a return visit, eventually.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all !!!
