Top Three Day Trips from South Beach

April 5, 2014

Feel like you’ve ‘seen’ Miami? Want to travel a little further afield, but still come home to your awesome apartment at the end of the day? Read on – we’ve got three perfect day trips for you!

Florida Keys: Wake up early and drive out to these 45 tropical islands. Driving down the long road that connects them, you’ll pass through the quirky, tacky and touristy upper keys, through the Middle Keys, to the sedate and beautiful Lower keys, smaller islands with beautiful beaches ending at Key West, which has some great restaurants and bars that will keep you entertained until it’s time to head back to SoBe

Everglades National Park: You’ll really need a boat for this one – but this swampy, soupy, exotic corner of Florida is definitely worth joining a tour for (or, even better, rent a canoe or kayak). The tropical wetlands are the perfect place to commune with nature – bird lovers will be in heaven – just don’t feed the alligators…!

Kennedy Space Centre: For something completely different, head up to the Space Coast, or Cape Canaveral, where you can’t fail to get excited about human space travel and NASA accomplishments. The centre itself has lots of great exhibits, and the coastal area also boasts  a sea turtle observation program and some pristine beaches.
