Miami

Magic City

Florida’s mecca of fun in the sun, the lively tropical metropolis of Miami is one of the world’s top vacation spots.
Start off your visit on the 13th (Sun): admire the landmark architecture of Art Deco Historic District and then wander the streets of Lincoln Road. Here are some ideas for day two: visit a coastal fixture at Cape Florida Lighthouse, then enjoy the sand and surf at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, and then take a leisurely stroll along South Pointe Park.

Heart of the Florida Keys

A tiny city just 16 km (10 mi) long, Marathon is spread across several islands in the middle of the Florida Keys.
Kids will enjoy Florida Keys Aquarium Encounters and Sombrero Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Dolphin Research Center and Spas & Wellness. Change things up with these side-trips from Marathon: Old Road Gallery (in Islamorada) and Florida Keys Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center (in Tavernier). There's much more to do: take in the views from Seven Mile Bridge, identify plant and animal life at The Turtle Hospital, and see what you can catch with a fishing tour.
