Best Time To Visit: Winter and spring are warm and avoid the potential rain of summer. November to May offer reliable weather.
Key Cruising Areas: The Intercoastal Waterway on the west provides sheltered sailing perfect for big game fishing. The Keys provide excellent sailing around barrier reefs, and the Everglades (southwest) is a wild, remote area great for bird and wildlife spotting.
Don’t Miss: The Florida Keys are the only living coral reef in the US. The string of tropical islands stretches for 150 km, well-known for great fishing, diving, and snorkeling. Spend a day sailing the turquoise waters of the island, then berth in Key West to sample the famous nightlife.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: The makeover of downtown Miami has been accompanied by a wonderful evolution in the restaurant scene. Try the sautéed snapper at the Matador Room for perfect, simple food in an elegant setting.
