Southwest does fly to Fort Lauderdale (FLL), which is only 30 miles to the north of Miami. If renting a car, its about a 50 minute drive.
I've taken several vacations to Miami via Fort Lauderdale or West Palm Beach (Home of Trump's Mar-a-lago). West Palm Beach is 2 hour drive to Miami, or 70 miles.
