Start your day by exploring the Art Deco Historic District, the largest display of Art Deco architecture in the world. It consists of hotels and apartment buildings from the late 1920s to the early 1940s. Take a stroll along the Ocean Drive – north-south boulevard that borders the Atlantic Ocean. Visit the Lummus Park, which runs along the Ocean Beach. The park offers a great view of Ocean Drive and its line-up of Art Deco Hotels. Other places of interest, worth seeing are: Washington Avenue, Lincoln Road Mall, Collins Avenue and Collins Park, Bass Museum of Art.
Back on the mainland, Miami offers a vast array of sights and attractions. Downtown Miami emanates the lively atmosphere of a Latin city. Visit the Historical Museum of Southern Florida, which recounts the region’s colorful past. Grab a bite at Bayside Marketplace, which overlooks the Biscayne Bay. Walk the streets of Little Havana, one the city’s most vibrant and exotic neighborhoods.
Check out the Latin Quarter, with its charming street lamps and brick sidewalks. South of Little Havana is the area called Coral Gables, which boasts the University of Miami campus, Venetian Pool and Lowe Art Museum. For Italian Renaissance style architecture visit the Vizcaya villa in Coconut Grove.
MIAMI BEACH » KEY WEST (170 mi / 272 km)
Depart Miami Beach towards Key West. Take the US 1 Overseas Highway. It links the 120 mile long Florida Keys island chain to mainland Florida. Arrive in Key West, the Southernmost City in the continental United States. Key West cultivates an atmosphere of inspiring tolerance that encourages a diverse mix of residents, from old-time “conch’ families (descended from the island’s original settlers) to a more recently arrived gay community. Take a biking or a walking tour of Old Town Key West. Old Town boasts more than 3000 significant historic structures including museums and other attractions. Visit Harry S Truman Little White House Museum, it gives a rare glimpse of the personality and private life of America’s 33rd president. Mel Fisher Maritime Heritage Society showcases gold, silver, and treasure recovered from shipwrecks around the world. The Duval Street bar and restaurant district includes many different entertainment options, all within walking distance.
Start the morning by visiting Nobel Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway's former home which is now open to the public as a museum, populated by as many as sixty descendants of his famous polydactyl cats. The Key West Botanical Forest and Garden is an excellent, frost-free arboretum and botanical garden containing a number of "champion tree" specimens. Nancy Forrester's Secret Garden is a one acre (4,000 m²) garden resembling a lush, predominantly green, rainforest. It is an exhibit of wild nature’s artistry in a woodland garden. The Key West Lighthouse and Keeper's Quarters Museum preserves the history of the Key West Lighthouse built in 1847. The Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory features a 5,000 square foot (460 m²) glass-domed tropical butterfly habitat. Some tourists mix with the locals, shop, and dine at the Key West Historic Seaport at the Key West Bight.
KEY WEST » KEY LARGO (105 mi / 168 km)
Key Largo, the Keys’ largest Island, for a while tried to compete with Key West for economic domination of the Keys, but lost the battle long ago. The tiny towns of Tavernier and Key Largo, which changed its name from Rock Harbor after the movie “Key Largo” -entirely shot in Hollywood- became a hit, are the island’s commercial centers. They make nice enough stops. The Florida Keys Visitor Center is at MM106 . But the essential thing to do would be a visit to the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park
John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park offers a fine opportunity to visit the Florida Reef, America’s one live coral reef, populated with lobsters, eels, jellyfish and schools of silvery minnows stalked by mean looking barracuda’s. If you can, make the snorkeling or scuba-diving tours; if that’s too much, a glass-bottom boat tour is your next best option. The Everglades are one of the very few areas in the US that enjoy UNESCO endorsement as a World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve. Covered by freshwater marshes, saw grass prairies, hardwood hammocks and an infinite variety of swamp-types, The Everglades form a totally self-sustained ecosystem, in its character and floral and wildlife richness unlike anything else in the world. Conveniently located in Miami’s backyard while in every aspect the utmost opposite of South Beach, it is most likely the one attraction that shows Florida as a truly special place on its own terms.
