Best Miami Vacations and Staycations

Warm weather. Beaches. Nightlife. Fabulous food. Nature. Miami is an easy place to pass a few days—or longer. If you’re headed to southern Florida, there’s certainly no shortage of things to do. Here are a few of the best.

Miami Vacation Spots Highlight—South Beach

It doesn’t get any more exciting than South Beach, with its hundreds of restaurants, hotels, bars, nightclubs, and boutiques. It’s a great place to dine, stay, or just spend time people-watching tourists from all over the world. The Art Deco architecture makes this stretch of Miami even more intriguing.

The Everglades

Covering 1.5 million acres, Everglades National Park is the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States—and only an hour or so drive from Miami. The two-hour long Shark Valley Tram Tour is a convenient way to see the park—or at least some of it. But you can also explore by bike, boat, or your own two feet.

Zoo Miami

The unique climate in South Florida allows this zoo to keep more than 3,000 animals representing more than 500 different species from Asia, Australia, and Africa.

The Beach

You can’t go to Miami without hitting the beach—or at least one of them. There are 15 beaches in the Miami area, including Hobie Beach where you can rent windsurfing equipment, sailboats, and Jet Skis.

Key West

The 150-mile drive from Miami to Key West has been called one of the great American road trips. You’ll pass through suburban Miami, then a portion of the Everglades before venturing onto the Overseas Highway that leads from Key Largo to Key West.

Miami Seaquarium

In addition to numerous exhibits, the Seaquarium allows visitor to experience encounters with dolphins, seals, and penguins. You can also sign up to be a Trainer for the Day—and take in live shows throughout the day.
