Miami går helt och hållet i sin egen rytm – från de solfyllda stränderna till en varierad blandning av kulturer. Njut av det glittrande chic i Miami Beach och utforska Little Havanas djupt rotade kubanska arv. Koppla av på Key Biscaynes lugna strandlinjer, cykla längs Ocean Drive eller paddla kajak genom Oleta River State Parks vindlande mangrovekanaler. Gå till Coconut Grove för att ta in den bohemiska atmosfären. Besök Vizcaya-godsets renässansinspirerade trädgårdar. Miami-kryssningar ger gästerna möjlighet att kolla på Perez Art Museums nutida samlingar. Oavsett om det gäller djuphavsfiske, Art Deco-arkitektur, mat i världsklass eller oändligt nattliv, utmärker sig äventyret i The Magic City.

Promenera på folkrika Collins Avenue, smutta på mojitos i strandbarer, dansa på ultrahippa nattklubbar och njut av den bästa ”people watching” som finns i stan.
Insider tip
Gratis skyttelservice med natursköna åkturer genom olika stränder och fastlandet.

Det kallas kultur

Upplev Miamis kubanska traditioner längs Calle Ocho i Little Havana. Här kan du vandra på gator fyllda med hett salsaljud och träffa lokalbefolkningen som röker cigarrer över ett spel domino. Från dess färgstarka tuppstaty till sina handrullade cigarrbutiker och friluftsmarknader är detta så autentiskt som det kan bli.
Insider tip
Håll utkik för livräddarflaggor på stranden: grönt är för lugnt vatten, gult signalerar moderata surfförhållanden, lila varnar för maneter och under röd flagg är simning förbjuden.

Att göra i
Orlando
Från 7:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Som hem för Kennedy Space Center, är Cape Canaveral startpunkten för det totala äventyret i centrala Florida. Dess stränder erbjuder en blandning av familjevänliga stränder och avskilda sandstränder. Och med Orlandos temapark bara en timme bort, kan du enkelt mingla med dina favoritkaraktärer. Bakom parkerna ligger lika roliga platser fullpackade med karaktär av Old Florida. Paddla förbi maneter i Banana River lagunen och åk zipline ovanför alligatorer i Brevard Zoo. Upptäck anmärkningsvärda konstmuseer och Park Avenues eleganta charm. Orlando-kryssningar ger dig tillgång till regionens rötter i Orange County Regional History Museum.

Trekkiespår

Starta en interstellär utforskning på Kennedy Space Center. Bland interaktiva missionszoner kan du se raketen Saturn V och rymdfärjan Atlantis. Gå innanför grindarna för att upptäcka historiska avfyrningsplatser och fungerande rymdreseanläggningar, och förundras över U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame.
Insider tip
Ta med kontanter för vägtullarna på Beachline Expressway mellan Port Canaveral och Orlando.

Gå in i karaktären

Orlando är känt som landet av nöjen – av goda skäl. Staden är hem till sex unika temaparker, var och en med sin egen distinkta spänning, inklusive Universal Studios Orlando och Islands of Adventure. Eller så kan du våga ta steget bortom Big Six till Gatorlands sumpiga terräng, eller gå på en av de många episka äventyrsbaden i staden.
Insider tip
Använd bekväma, väl ingångna promenadskor i nöjesparkerna.

Utanför linjerna

Anslut med Floridas naturliga sida medan du rider på vågorna på Cocoa Beach, eller sola i avskildhet vid Canaveral National Seashore. Missa inte en kajaktrip genom självlysande vatten, eller en flygbåtresa genom våtmarker. Kryssa till Orlando-Port Canaveral och simma i föryngrande sötvattenkällor — eller spela på någon av Orlandos 150 golfbanor.

Det lokala köket

I Cove at Port Canaveral finns gott om restauranger på strandpromenaden som serverar färska fisktacos och mahi-mahismörgåsar. Orlando har sin beskärda del av ställen som leds av kändiskockar, direkt från bondgården till matbordet — och måltider inspirerade av karaktärer är populära på temaparkens hotellområden. Och Mills 50 District norr om centrala Orlando, är berömd för sin vietnamesiska marknad.

Shopping

Butikerna i Historic Cocoa Village, säljer lokalt handgjord konst och tropisk inredning. Souvenirshopping i Orlando är bäst på Disney Springs, Universal CityWalk och längs International Drive. Stanna till på familjeägda Orange Blossom Indian River Citrus för apelsiner, blodgrape och andra frukter odlade i Florida under din Orlando-kryssning.
