Soak Up the Sun in Your Hialeah Rental Car

Nicknamed “The City of Progress,” the city of Hialeah, Florida, is the sixth-largest city in the state, and is a major part of Greater Miami. The city is home to the highest percentage of Cuban and Cuban-American residents of any city in the United States, and is one of the largest Spanish-speaking communities in the country, prompting many companies such as Spanish-language television network, Telemundo, to make their headquarters here. If you’re cruising through the city in your Hialeah rental car, you might want to stop by the Everglades, Miami (South Beach) or Amelia Earhart Park.

One of the best-known natural attractions in Florida, the Everglades is roughly an hour south of Miami in your Thrifty rental car. This natural region of tropical wetlands begins near Orlando with the Kissimmee River. Be sure to bring a raincoat, as the Everglades often experiences a wide range of weather patterns, from frequent flooding in the wet season to drought in the dry season. The park is made up of a complex system of interdependent ecosystems that include cypress swamps, the estuarine mangrove forests of the Ten Thousand Islands, tropical hardwood hammocks, pine rockland and the marine environment of Florida Bay.

South Beach
No visit to this part of Florida is complete without a stopover in South Beach, Miami. Whether you come here during the day or the evening, South Beach offers visitors the glitter and glamour of Las Vegas in a beach town setting. Here you’ll find hundreds of nightclubs, restaurants, boutiques and hotels. One of the most striking aspects of South Beach is the colorful, retro-style hotels and buildings that line the beachfront street. Almost one square mile of South Beach is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Amelia Earhart Park
For a stop on the quieter side, drive your Hialeah rental car to this 515-acre urban park. The park is located just north of Hialeah and features a number of recreational attractions like bike trails, skateboarding and fishing. In addition, there are eight miles of bike trails, as well as single-track and fire road trails with a number of climbs, downhills and banked corners. For dog owners, the park offers a fenced-in, 5-acre dog park to let your little friend roam free. The park also includes an 18-hole disc golf course, paved walkways, playgrounds, benches, shade trees and waste dispenser stations.
