The Everglades Park is famous for its airboats as seen in the movies and TV shows.  There are several ways in with no road to connect them, so go the right way. To the south, follow the long road through the National Park to the tip of Florida and continue by boat ride or go on the many trails and hikes. To the north, rent a bike to ride the 15 mile Shark Valley road, stopping to take a look at the observation tower and its panoramic view. To the West, on your way to Naples, rent a boat and explore the Ten Thousand Islands.

A few minutes from downtown Miami and the Brickell’s financial district is the entrance to the Coconut Grove neighborhood where you’ll find the magnificent Vizcaya Museums and Gardens. This little folly was commissioned by billionaire John Deering who wanted an Italian Renaissance-style residence. The construction meant that a new road needed to be built and a large part of Miami’s population were employed to work on it.
