Florida Keys & Miami


Miami is an iconic city and a fantastic option whether you want some beach time or a buzzing city experience. The South Beach area is a great place to stay with loads of Art Deco hotels running down the length of the sea front with their hip cafés, bars and nightclubs. Miami has also become a shopping mecca with a great number of designer stores around the South Beach area, or you can take a cab to one of the central Miami Shopping malls.

The Florida Keys are a group of islands that run from the southern tip of Florida State offering a beautiful alternative for couples and families looking for a more 'tropical' experience (average temperatures between 20-25°C). The focus of activities in The Keys is on or in the sea, be it swimming with dolphins, scuba diving, sport fishing or just chartering a boat. Key West is the last of the islands and seen as the 'capital' of the island chain. With its laid back, bohemian atmosphere and a concentration of hotels, bars and restaurants, this is the popular choice for couples. Key Largo and Marathon are two of the other islands where you can find some resort-style hotels which will appeal more to families.
