South Florida’s Unique Travel Destinations
One of the perks of visiting Miami is the freedom of not being confined to a single city or destination. Miami’s location on the southernmost point of Florida’s peninsula gives travelers the chance to visit attractions as far west as The Everglades, south to the Florida Keys, north to the Palm Beaches, even west to the Bahamas.
