"LeJeune Rd. - (Really 42nd Ave in Miami and E 8th Ave in Hialeah)"

Here we have one of those streets that at one certain point, it can confuse the hell out of you without some proper thinking and planning ahead.

It's most confusing point is heading Northbound or Southbound around the Miami International Airport, where one can easily spend a good time circling the airport before getting stopped and asked what are you doing. If you stick to the center and follow the signs aorund the Airport area, you can easily avoid hopping on the airport's terminal lanes.

North of the airport you have what is known as City of Hialeah, a mostly industrial and residential area (with warehouses, factories, store mini outlets, etc.) which was first inhabited and developed in the latter stages of Miami's developed, boomed with the Cuban Invasion, and now rests with a mix of different ethnicities. LeJeune Rd. converts into E. 8th Avenue, as it crosses this sub-city with it's own street sign grid. The neighborhoods are mostly old single family homes and multi-unit building housing with worn down construction and very little Brand New development. In Hialeah, shop at the many mini-outlets or spend a day at the Horse Races.

In Hialeah, just dont get caught in it's horrendously frustrating morning and afternoon traffic jams, as the streets are very old and small and the local very aggressive when the flow is disturbed.

South of the airport, you head toward what is known as the "SW" part of Miami while you cruise through part of "NW" Miami on your way south. On NW 7th Street, see the famous OB Center and Movie plex, one of Miami's good old places that first had Movie Theaters (and still does) in the development boom of the 80's. See hints of the 80's lifestyle in this building's architecture.

Keep heading South on LeJeune and you will soon cross through the beautiful "Gables". Stop by Miracle Mile or visit many other sites of The Gables on your way.

Even further south on LeJeune you can also find US1 with it's many junctions and routes to other important key points of the City of Miami.
