Have you thought about how transportation fits into your plans for the South Beach Wine and Food Festival? Reserving professional transportation is a great idea, especially for groups. It’s safe to say that traffic gets pretty busy during this time! You can easily spend an extra ten to thirty minutes trying to figure out directions, deal with traffic, and get a good parking spot if you’re unfamiliar with the area. With a limousine, car service, or party bus, you’ll already have an organized meeting spot for your group. A chauffeur is able to get to destinations efficiently, dropping you right off at the doors. It’s a lot easier than ordering multiple Ubers through out the trip! Click here for more information.
