Why you should visit the South Florida & The Keys

Looking to explore South Florida but only have a few days at your disposal? With this 4-day Itinerary, you can explore the beautiful Keys, the majestic Everglades National Park and even take a peek at the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida with an overnight in Marco Island!

This is also a great mini-tour for those of you that are vacationing in Miami and Miami Beach and would like to take a few days to explore the surrounding areas. 

This itinerary is planned, so you visit the South Florida region in just 4 days.

When to plan your South Florida Vacation?

South Florida is famous for its mild-dry winters and hot-humid-rainy summers. Although, you will be able to follow this itinerary any time of the year, the best season if you want to avoid most of the rainfall would be Winter & Spring.

Fall is the season when most likely you can experience hurricanes and tropical storms, although it's really hard to predict in advance.

Summer can be an 'inferno' especially from the end of July to early September.

Medical Insurance

International Travelers? We certainly recommend adding a Medical Insurance while traveling in the US as medical bills are quite expenses. When picking a company, check that there is a 24/7 costumer service and compare the prices of the various policies and the limitations.

International Flights

International flights are not included in the price of this package.

This Itinerary can be a Standalone Gateway or an Extension to your Miami Vacation!

Miami Beach & Downtown at Sunset - View

Day 1: Arrival in Miami

If you're arriving in Miami today, we recommend picking up your rental car right at the airport and head south towards Homestead or Key Largo, depending on how much you are feeling like driving. From Miami airport to Homestead the distance is 35 miles (about 56 km) and Key Largo 64 miles (about 103 km)

If on the other end, you are already in Miami, then we suggest picking up your rental car and driving towards Key Largo where you can enjoy some snorkeling or scuba diving. Key Largo is the first of the Keys that you will encounter coming from Miami and has plenty of restaurants and bars overlooking the gulf for a perfect dinner with sunset

You can then spend your night in Key Largo or nearby.

Night: Key Largo Holiday inn key Largo*** or similar

Key West Pier and Beach - Day View

Day 2: Homestead > Key West

From Homestead you will have approx. 2 h 48 min (128 miles) of Panoramic Drive to reach the Southern Most point of the continental United States -- Key West.

You can take your time driving down the famous Overseas Highway (one of the most celebrated scenic routes in the US) connecting 44 islands and 42 bridges all the way down to Key West. Check-in in your Hotel and "ditch" the car.

Key West is to be discovered on foot, we recommend enjoying the Sunset from the harbor while drinking a tropical cocktail, You can also do some sightseeing including visiting two iconic houses -- the iconic Truman Little White House and the Hemingway House. If you want to have a look from a vantage point, check-out the LightHouse, and then walk on Duvall Street amongst hundreds of shops, local artists and maybe get a drink at Sloppy Joe and enjoy some Caribbean-style dishes in one of the local eateries.

Night: Key West Best Western Hibiscus Motel** or similar

NOTE -- DO YOU HAVE 1 EXTRA DAY? If you have few extra days, we recommend spending 1 extra night in Key West and enjoy a full-day of adventures. You can visit Dry Tortuga Island, ride the Jet-Skis, do a panoramic cruise or a fishing trip, and much more!

Everglades Park Alligator

Day 3 Key West > Everglades City > Marco Island

Depending on what you did the day before, you can spend a couple of hours finishing exploring Key West including Hemingway's home and the Lighthouse.

Leave Key West and head back north to take the famous Alligator Alley and go towards Everglades City. Here you will spend your afternoon exploring this incredible natural ecosystem of the Everglades National Park and its infamous Inhabitants -- The American Alligator.

Night: Marco Island Marco Beach Ocean Resort*** or similar

Marco Island

Day 4: Marco Island > Naples > Miami

Wake up on the Gulf Coast. You will notice how different this side of Florida is from the Atlantic Coast.

We recommend spending a few hours in Naples and walk on the white-sandy beaches and tour the surroundings.

In the afternoon, start heading back to Miami. From Naples, it will take you about 2 hours by car to get back to Miami.

I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!
