Once nicknamed "God's Waiting Room" because of the many octogenarians eking out their last moments by the pool, modern day Miami is a glittering jewel of the south. Peppered with the music, food, and cultural flavors of Latin America, you’re more likely to find yourself surrounded by bikini-models, fashion designers and Cuban émigrés than the residents of an old-folks home.
Day 1: Explore Miami
Cradled by the Everglades, the Florida Keys, and that ever-present Gulf, it might be wise to pick up a Go Miami Card to fully explore what options lie in store for you. Alternatively, you could ease into things with a Miami City Tour, which includes a relaxing and informative cruise on Biscayne Bay. Splash down into the bay on a Miami Duck Tour or fly over the famous beaches, Art Deco district and downtown on a Grand Miami Air Tour. The view up here is even better as the sun goes down on a Miami Sunset Air Tour - especially when it's a romantic champagne flight.
Day 2: Go for a Splash!
Miami is all about playing outdoors in the sun. Ride an airboat in the Everglades and come face-to-face with killer whales at the Miami Seaquarium, or mix with the wildlife on Jungle Island. Ride a buggy through wetlands on a safari and snorkel the deep blue off Key West. Immerse yourself in the laid-back Caribbean vibe on a Key West Day Tour, with time to explore the famous waterfront and Hemingway's former hangouts. Zip across Biscayne Bay in a speedboat, or slow the pace down on a relaxing bay boat cruise.
Day 3: VIP Treatment
Rest up after the exertions of Day Two, then put on your party gear and ease into the evening with a Versace walking tour, retracing the last steps of the famous fashion designer and visiting his favorite hangouts and the old Versace store. Or take to the air at dusk on a Miami Lights Evening Air Tour. Enjoy VIP treatment with dinner and dancing, driven to and fro by your personal driver and guide, then boogie into the early hours on a Miami Dance Cruise. And if one club is 12 too few, skip the lines at 13 nightclubs with the exclusive Miami Party Pass.
