Ballpark Nerd recommends researching Little Havana before making your way to Marlins Park which is located in the middle of a residential neighborhood. Most fans drive to the game, if you do make sure you purchase parking prior to the game. Public transit options include Metrorail Express Shuttle, Bus and Tri-Rail Connections.
