Everglades Airboat Tour

You might not know this, but Florida actually possesses one of the most unique natural regions in the United States. The swampy, tropical wetlands known as the Everglades cover 1.5 million acres of Florida, and are full of alligators, turtles and multiple species of birds. Airboats are the best way to explore this marshy wonderland, and their are plenty of airboat tours that offer transportation to-and-from Miami.

Catch a tour of Florida’s world-famous swampy wonderland.

Explore Little Havana

Another must while visiting Miami is visit their famous Cuban neighborhood. Known as ‘Little Havana’, local guides will take you to all the famous eateries and cafés, where you’ll get to sample delicious Cubanos, refreshing mojitos, shots of Cuban coffee and, if you’re lucky, maybe even some traditional cigars!

Catch a tour of Little Havana to experience the food and culture of Miami’s famous Cuban neighborhood.

Miami Sightseeing Cruise

There’s probably no better way to see all the sights of Miami’s iconic waterfront than from aboard on of the city’s famous sightseeing cruises. Aboard, you’ll sail pass famous landmarks like Star Island, Biscayne Bay and Downtown Miami and learn all about these locations as well as the history of the city.
