Start the day with an early morning hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach in Orlando, then enjoy the drive south for this Everglades National Park tour near Miami. There will be several stops along the way and a continental breakfast to go will be served during the trip. The driving time from Orlando to Miami is approximately four hours.
The park is the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States and protects the land that is home to rare and endangered species like the manatee, the American crocodile and the Florida panther. On this wild, 30-minute airboat ride through Florida’s famous eco-system and swamp lands, be on the lookout for alligators and more. Then get closer to them on an interactive snake and alligator show, with some great photo opportunities to remember the day with.
After leaving the park, it's a 1-hour drive to Miami. First, enjoy some free time to shop and wander and grab some food at Bayside Marketplace. Here, you can upgrade to include a 1.5-hour cruise on Biscayne Bay along Miami’s scenic waterway. Check out the celebrity homes, from Hibiscus Island to Star Island and beyond.
Back on solid ground, close the day with a visit to lively South Beach and its famous Art Deco District. Walk through the neighborhood and admire the architecture, grab something to eat, shop and soak up the distinctive culture that makes South Beach one of the most popular hot spots in the world.
Finally, board the coach for the 4-hour return trip to Orlando.
