Sun Trolley — This service provides FREE shuttle service between the Fort Lauderdale airport and downtown Fort Lauderdale, but only operates on Saturdays and Sundays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. The final departure from downtown to the airport leaves at 4:30. The shuttle will drop you on Himmarshee Street (SW 2nd Street) downtown within walking distance to the festival.http://www.SunTrolley.com

Check out the Super Shuttle to get cheap, quick, reliable access from the Miami or Fort Lauderdale airport to downtown Fort Lauderdale. (SUPER SHUTTLE DOES NOT PICK UP AT FLL) http://www.supershuttle.com

There is also a commuter train for those who fly into Miami, known as the Tri-Rail Commuter Train Service. Typically you can get round trip service on the train for as little as $10 and under. http://www.tri-rail.com. Check out the Broward County Transit for Metro bus options, maps and schedules http://www.broward.org/BCT. We are located directly across the street from the central terminal.

As always, taxis are available at both the Fort Lauderdale and Miami Airport — they just might not be the most cost effective option!

 

PARKING

 

There are plenty of parking options for those driving to America’s Backyard, but we do encourage carpooling to save money, gas and, obviously, the environment! Also, there are taxis and other public transportation options like the Sun Trolley in the downtown area if you’re trying to avoid driving/parking.

Please refer to our Map of parking options.

The City of Fort Lauderdale and Broward County parking garages house over 2,200 parking spaces and are within walking distance of America’s Backyard. There are also plenty of private parking lots and garages within walking distance.
