Itinerary in brief:
- 4 nights Miami Beach
- 3 nights Key West
Day 1: Arrive Miami
On arrival at Miami Airport, you’ll make your own way to Miami Beach, where you’ll check into your hotel for four nights.
Days 2-4: Miami Beach
Spend a few days relaxing on this famous stretch of sand and swimming in the turquoise waves. If you’re in the market for retail therapy, Miami Beach has some of the best shopping in the country, housed in huge modern malls or tiny art deco buildings like The Webster, brimming with boutique designers and cafes. Take a wander through Wynwood, packed with galleries, clubs and street art, before finishing your day with a Cuban sandwich and a few mojitos in one of the beachfront bars.
Day 5: Drive to Key West
Today you’ll pick up your rental car, an upmarket convertible, and drive from Miami to Key West on the famous Overseas Highway. Roll down the roof and feel the wind in your hair as you cruise the 113 miles down through the Florida Keys – there’s nothing quite like it! Why not stop at Duck Key for a seafood lunch overlooking the ocean before continuing to Key West, where you’ll check into your hotel for three nights.
Day 6: Key West
In Key West, life is sweet and easy, so slow your pace and soak up the atmosphere. This is a place of afternoon cocktails, colourful houses and the best seafood in the state. Why not stop into the Ernest Hemmingway Museum to see how the author enjoyed his time in Key West or hire and weave through the small sandy streets, finishing at the southernmost point of the USA – only 90 miles from Cuba! In the evening, we’ve included a catamaran cruise out on the ocean, where you’ll sip champagne and watch the sun tuck itself behind the horizon in a splash of pink and orange.
Day 7: Depart Miami
Today is your final day in Florida, so you’ll drive back to Miami Airport and drop off your rental car in time to catch your onwards flight.
