About

Recommended for:
Beach | City | Relaxation | Self-drive

Starting in Miami, you’ll be treated to blood-orange sunsets over famed boardwalks, a perfect backdrop to its protected architectural district. You’ll then immerse yourself in island life on the Florida Keys with its crystal clear waters, laidback towns and, this being the Sunshine State, picturesque beaches. Go at your own pace on this self-drive tour as you enjoy coastal drives and impossible bridges knitting together tiny islands. Or, simply relax poolside looking out for swimming dolphins.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
UK/Miami

After arriving into Miami, check into the stylised chic of your South Beach Hotel – the perfect introduction to Miami’s Art Deco architecture. Depending on your arrival time, you'll have a chance to stroll along the seafront, admiring the impressive buildings, and the relaxed and feel-good west coast atmosphere.

Stay: The Betsy Hotel, Miami (Superior)

Day 2
Miami

You’ll then have a full day to explore the sleek modernist curves of Miami Beach Architectural District. Founded in 1979, it features 960 historic buildings that include ornate hotels, streamlined delis and neon theatres. But Miami is much more than its heritage buildings as many see little else apart from its iconic beaches, just across from your hotel. There’s also a wide selection of fine dining restaurants – the jewel in the crown of the city’s lively nightlife scene. Alternatively, head into the wildlife rich Everglades or take a trip to Little Havana to experience the culture and mouth-watering food of the city’s Latin side.

Stay: The Betsy Hotel, Miami (Superior)

Days 3-4
Islamorada

On your third day, continue your exploration of Miami before picking up your hire car as you head for the spectacular Islamorada. Known as the ‘Village of Islands’, Islamorada, is home to raking sunsets and world-class scuba diving and snorkelling in the island’s underwater coral gardens. With the Keys forming a divide between the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico, there’s also tournament-grade fishing and scenic boating. Back at your accommodation, dine on freshly caught seafood at Cheeca Lodge, featuring almost 400 metres of palm tree fringed beach.

Stay: Cheeca Lodge, Islamorada (Superior)

Days 5-7
Key West

A drive further along the Florida Keys archipelago will bring you to bohemian Key West where you can visit Ernest Hemingway’s Spanish colonial villa and writing studio. Convivial bars line Caribbean streets in a town that’s closer, quite literally, to Havana than it is the Florida mainland. As such, visitors will enjoy literary festivals and a thriving arts scene.

Stay: Casa Marina, Key West, Florida (Superior)

Days 8-9
Islamorada

Retrace your journey over Seven Mile Bridge to Duck Key; surrounded by aquamarine water, it’s another island paradise but this time with its own pod of dolphins. Get up close to them on swimming experiences in the resort’s freshwater lagoon. Unsurprisingly, watersports take centre stage as you can snorkel, paddle board, kayak, scuba dive and fish to your heart’s content. If you’re looking for something more relaxing, simply unwind at your beachfront hotel.

Stay: Amara Cay (Superior)

Day 10
Depart for UK

On your final day in America, return your car to the airport for your overnight flight back to the UK.

Day 11
Arrive UK

Arriving back in the UK, continue your journey home.
