American Airlines Arena is home to the NBA’s Miami Heat, who have played there since 2000. The arena sits just north of downtown Miami, so renting a charter bus in Miami is by far the easiest and most hassle-free way to transport your group to and from a game or concert.
American Airlines Arena opened just before the turn of the century on December 31st, 1999. It holds a total of 19,600 guests for basketball games and can host anywhere between 5,000 and 20,021 guests for concerts. The arena features three concourses, the 100 level, 300 level, and 400 level. Then, there is the suite level, which includes Dewar’s Clubhouse, where members enjoy fine dining, Dewar’s Rail seats, VIP booths, and casual bar seating.
The stadium boasts a total of 2,105 club seats, 80 luxury suites, and 76 private boxes. Dining options in the stadium include Chicken Ciao, Prime Grill, and Downtown/Uptown Dog, which offers supped-up versions of America’s favorite ballpark classic. There are also vegetarian options, such as Outtakes, Baja Bao, 601, and Kuenko, which features vegetarian poke bowls.
Why charter a bus to visit American Airlines Arena
Braving the city traffic in Miami is not a good idea if you’re unfamiliar with the area. By hiring a Miami bus rental with a private driver, your group won’t have to stress about getting to and from the arena for your event. The arena also has a convenient drop off and pick up location at Gate 3, where your driver can be instructed to arrive. This way, you won’t have to pay for parking either.
Once your event at American Airlines Arena is over, take the opportunity to explore a little more of the Miami area. For groups looking for other fun attractions, Bongos Cuban Cafe offers a taste of the Miami nightlife and the Bayside Marketplace is a must for anyone that wants to enjoy a drink on the water or grab a sunset cruise out to Biscayne Bay’s islands.
If you’re looking to secure lodging for your group in the area, there are a number of great hotels close to the arena, including Four Seasons Hotel Miami, the Chelsea Hotel, and Mondrian South Beach Hotel. Foodies that want to sample Miami’s unique cuisine can easily jump from the stadium to CVI.CHE 105, a Peruvian Restaurant that’s great for large groups and features an awesome bar scene.
Art Deco central and home to swaying palm trees, sun-kissed beaches, and a vibrant nightlife, Miami is an iconic destination steeped in art, culture, and fun. Visit Miami and its surrounding areas, and be in the front line as latin culture take center stage while indulging in a little bit of sun, sea, and sand.
