7 Day Itinerary in MiamiEdit This
If you want to soak up some of that Florida sun, here's a Miami 7 day itinerary. Sun, sand and more sun is prominently what Miami has to offer.
Day 1 - Beaches
Florida has 1,197 miles of coastline, and of that, 663 miles of public beaches. Miami is the second most populous city in the state, and probably the most well known, primarily for its miles of beautiful beaches. A trip to the beach is just a short drive over the Biscayne Bay. Don't forget to bring a cooler and a frisbee!
Day 2 - Miami MetroZoo
Being that Miami has a tropical climate, it holds well for plant and animal life to sustain and flourish most of the year. The Miami MetroZoo was one of the first cage-free zoos; animals that are naturally together in the wild are also grouped here.
Day 3 - Miami Seaquarium
Minus the roller coasters of Sea World, the Miami Seaquarium has a display of many aquatic creatures from around the world. There are also various shows during the day with dolphins, killer whales and seals.
Day 4 - Everglades
Take a drive west to the Florida Everglades. This 1.5 million acre swamp land is home to endangered species such as the American Crocodile, the Florida Panther and the West Indian Manatee. You can take a canoe ride on the grassy river and then picnic in some of the campgrounds.
Day 5 - Coral Castle Museum
Taking nearly 30 years to construct, finishing in the 1950s, this hand-carved castle is made purely of coral. The structures were supposedly built by one man who kept the whole project secret until completion. There are guided tours available.
Day 6 - Crandon Park on Biscayne Key
This county park is only a 15-minute drive from South Beach in Miami. There is a kayak and snorkel tour through the shallow waters around the protected park. For those who have never snorkeled before, they offer a quick lesson before heading to the water.
Day 7 - Jungle Island
Jungle is located in the heart of Downtown Miami,
between the mainland and South Beach off Interstate 395. The zoo-like
attraction is more focused on the tropical sort of plants and animals.
Shows are held daily and concessions are available.
