1. Miami Beaches
Of the many top beaches in Florida, the sands of Miami Beach have much to commend them to sunseekers and weekend travelers. You'll find no end of excuses to kick-back and relax here. Lined with hotels and high-end homes, and an easy shuttle ride from Miami International Airport, the beaches straddle a narrow barrier reef and are accessible from the mainland via numerous bridges (or even by water taxi). The beach itself is seemingly endless, offering plenty of space to spread out and sunbathe or on which to walk and soak up the sights.
2. Biscayne National Park
Biscayne offers a complex ecosystem full of brightly colored fish, uniquely-shaped coral, and miles of wavy seagrass. It is the perfect destination for outdoor enthusiasts who seek aquatic adventures or those tourists looking to simply relax and look out over the bay.
3. West Palm Beach
Exquisite shops, fine dining, Broadway-quality shows, a world-renowned art museum and more -- this is what awaits the fortunate visitor to West Palm Beach.
