There’s never been a cooler way to get to a Heat game. Down and back to Miami from WPB is now fast and fabulous, thanks to Brightline extending its express rail service to Miami. Takes just over one hour in the stress-free, luxury environment that defines the Disney-esque Brightline experience. No dodging drivers on I-95 who often follow rules of the road derived from their favorite video game. No hunting or paying for parking, or worrying about who drives everyone home safely.
The eye-popping Miami Central Station is at 600 NW 1st Ave., walking distance to the American Airlines Arena, Pérez Art Museum, Frost Science Museum and the insta-ready Wynwood Walls urban art display.
For the not-so-fleet-of-foot, Miami Central also has direct connections to Metrorail, Metromover and the Miami Trolley, plus ridesharing and bike sharing services. So whether you’re heading to the Port of Miami to catch a cruise or visiting South Beach to behold the bikinis, track down Brightline’s schedule at www.gobrightline.com
The West Palm Beach Philosophers, who meet Friday mornings at Subculture on Clematis to chew over the week’s news and air their views, took the show on the road in July and headed via Brightline to Miami. The trip served as a fundraiser for Ricky Aiken’s non-profit, Inner City Innovators. Check out the photos by Aaron Wormus, aka A Guy On Clematis. If you want real- time updates on downtown news and issues, Aaron is your “Guy.”
