You’ll fly into the Sunshine State of Florida arriving in Orlando. You’ll then head South to Miami and along the Overseas Highway to laid back Key West on the most southern tip of the USA. Your trip will then take you up through the Everglades and to the beautiful beaches of the Gulf Coast before heading back to Orlando for your flight home.
All our road trips can be shortened or extra nights added or modified with upgraded hotels, car etc. We love building tailor made trips!
Arrive in the Sunshine State of Florida and you’ll be able to spend two full days at the theme parks. We can increase the number of days to suit, but you’ll almost certainly want to enjoy Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando. We can usually obtain 1 or 2 day tickets for the major parks.
Today you’ll head south to Miami where you’ll spend the next three nights. From your hotel in South Beach you will only be feet from Ocean Drive and a choice of great restaurants, bars and the buzz of Miami. Spend an afternoon shopping and a morning on our art-deco self guided walking tour.
Leave Miami and head even further south. Soon, you’ll get onto Highway 1, known as the Overseas Highway. You’ll stop for the night in Key Largo. We recommend visiting the Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park or the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park and there are various wildlife sanctuaries in the Key Largo area.
Today you’re driving to the southernmost point in continental USA for two nights. Use the stunning Overseas Highway to Key West which has a refreshingly laid back atmosphere. Duval Street is where most of the lively action is, but make sure you check out the sunset at Mallory Square and also Ernest Hemmingway’s house which is located here in Key West.
Today you’ll drive back along the amazing Overseas Highway hopping from island to island before you arrive back in mainland Florida. Tomorrow you’ll explore the amazing Everglades National Park
The Everglades National Park is a wildlife rich area stretching out over 1.5 million acres of remote land. We can highly recommend spending the morning at the Anhinga Trail before heading through the Everglades. A stop at Shark Valley on route is suggested as you cruise through this National Park.
Today you will leave the Everglades in your rear view mirror as you head up Florida’s West Coast to Sarasota. A side trip to sister islands Sanibel and Captiva is one worth making; these barrier islands are rich in wildlife and have gorgeous beaches. An extra night here or in any of the overnight locations can easily be added to your trip.
Today you’ll take a steady cruise back to Orlando, some 130 miles ready for your flight home later in the day. Alternatively we can arrange for you to spend a few days in the parks at the end of your trip instead of the beginning.
You’ll arrive back in the UK today. Thank you for booking your road trip with RouteTrip USA.
