Florida’s mecca of fun in the sun, the lively tropical metropolis of Miami is one of the world’s top vacation spots.
Get a sense of the local culture at Henry Morrison Flagler Museum and Art Deco Tours. Popular historic sites such as Smallwood Store and Deering Estate are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Miami side-trips: Delray Beach (Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens & Wakodahatchee Wetlands), Lion Country Safari (in Loxahatchee) and Ochopee (Loop Road & Big Cypress National Preserve). Fill the 5th (Fri) with the natural beauty at John D. MacArthur Beach State Park. Spend the 4th (Thu) exploring nature at Everglades National Park. There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Anhinga Trail, enjoy the sand and surf at Las Olas Beach, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Haulover Beach Park.
