In Miami, visitors can have the best of both worlds: days exploring some of the most unique and expansive national parks and preserves in the U.S., and nights spent savoring a great meal, then enjoying a luxurious hotel experience. Whether you choose to hike, paddle, or take a boat or tram tour in Everglades National Park; meander scenic boardwalks, loop drives and backcountry trails in Big Cypress National Preserve; or boat, snorkel and fish in the clear turquoise waters of Biscayne National Park, one thing is certain.
Miami Beach is known for its beautiful stretches of white-sand beach and turquoise waters – and beyond the beach, the city offers some lovely neighborhood parks, gardens and golf courses as well. Start on the sand, at popular spots such as North Beach Oceanside Park, with its scenic dunes and tranquil beach, or bustling Lummus Park, South Beach’s most active beach at any time of day or night.
