Getting to and from the Miami Boat Show Like a Pro

WHAT: The Progressive® Insurance Miami International Boat Show, presented by West Marine, opening tomorrow, has a new and improved transportation plan helping to create a stress-free experience for attendees. With Miami being one of the most traffic dense cities in the country, the boat show is introducing new ways for attendees to get to and from the boat show at Miami Marine Stadium Park on Virginia Key, including more park-and-ride locations in 2019, free water taxi services, new shuttle bus services, and easy-to-navigate public transportation options.
