Florida’s mecca of fun in the sun, the lively tropical metropolis of Miami is one of the world’s top vacation spots.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Miami: Shark Valley Visitor Center (in Everglades National Park) and Fort Lauderdale Beach (in Fort Lauderdale). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at South Beach, make a trip to Collins Avenue, see the interesting displays at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, and wander the streets of Ocean Drive.

Located just 140 km (90 mi) from Cuba, Key West is an island only about 6.4 km (4 mi) long and 1.6 km (1 mi) wide.
Kick off your visit on the 7th (Wed): examine the collection at The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum, look for all kinds of wild species at Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, then take a leisurely stroll along Mallory Square, and finally pause for some photo ops at Florida Keys Historical Military Memorial. Here are some ideas for day two: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, make a trip to Southernmost Point, then don't miss a visit to Duval Street, and finally explore the different monuments and memorials at Key West Cemetery.

To find maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Key West trip itinerary planner.

You can fly from Miami to Key West in 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of bus and flight; or drive. August in Key West sees daily highs of 90°F and lows of 81°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 9th (Fri) to allow time for travel back home.
