TIPS FOR GETTING TO AND ENJOYING MIAMI BEACH PRIDE

Hydrate and Dress Comfortably

Pride is a marathon, not a sprint, so remember to pace yourself. As most of the events are outdoors, drink lots of water, especially if you’re consuming alcohol. Also, wear plenty of sunscreen, and dress in light and comfortable clothing.

Timing, Parking and Transportation

If you’re not staying in Miami Beach, it’s generally wise to head to the parade and festival as early as possible, as traffic and crowds become more challenging as the day goes on. If you’re driving to Pride, you’ll find city garages on 7th Street between Collins and Washington avenues, as well as on 12th and 13th streets. They will fill up fast, though, and may be tough to exit when the events are over. Be patient and kind to your fellow festival-goers.

Another parking option is the city garage at the end of the MacArthur Causeway on 5th Street and Alton Road. It’s about a 15-minute walk from Lummus Park and will save you the traffic jams and parking challenges along Collins and Washington avenues.

If you’re not driving, consider taking the Poseidon Ferry from Downtown Miami to Miami Beach. It leaves from the Hyatt Regency Miami in Downtown Miami and brings passengers to the Bentley Bay Marina at 6th Street and West Avenue in Miami Beach. From there, it’s about a 15-minute walk to Lummus Park. The ferry costs $13 each way ($7 for Florida residents) and has a bar onboard.

Those coming from Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach can take the high-speed Brightline train to Miami Central station, and then add a Brightline Plus private ride to the beach for a small additional fee. This means you won’t have to find a rideshare or taxi once you get off the train.

Remember, this is a Pride festival, so keeping an open mind is a must. Pride is nothing if not a celebration of unbridled joy, so bring your positive vibe and have a great time.
