Absolutely New York & Miami  

Fifth Avenue to Ocean Drive

This pair of USA metropolises make the perfect city and beach combo.

Delve into New York first, making the most of your time here by seeing the city from the top of skyscrapers, exploring its heritage in the Lower East Side, or catching a Broadway show or one of the city’s sports teams in action. Then hop back on a plane to fly three hours south to the sunny shores of Miami, where you can choose whether to spend your whole time by a pool or on South Beach or get to know the fascinating neighbourhood of Little Havana, the street art in Wynwood, and the leafy Coconut Grove.

Recommended itinerary

New York

Be a part of it…

You’ll probably arrive in New York in the late afternoon, enjoying your journey into the city as you approach the skyline at dusk to check into your city hotel. Spend the next few days getting to know this incredible city, seeing for yourself why New York is so beloved. Then, you’ll return to the airport and fly south to Miami, Florida.

What to do in New York

Explore on foot

Walking tours are a great way to get to know a neighbourhood, whether you’re curious about Alexander Hamilton’s Wall Street or want to know the roots of NYC in the Lower East Side. Make time to see the city from one of New York’s skyscrapers – try the Edge, SUMMIT One Vanderbilt, Top of the Rock, or the Empire State Building.

Where to stay in New York

Decisions, decisions…

Choosing the right neighbourhood to stay in can make navigating the city much easier. Your choice of neighbourhoods should depend on the activities you plan to do while you're there. To explore famous Midtown and Times Square landmarks, staying at Moxy NYC Times Square or Lotte New York Palace are two great options.


Fly to Florida

Arrive in Miami after a three-hour flight from New York. The sands of Miami Beach might be the first thing that comes to mind, but there’s so much more to Miami than its beaches. Foodies, families, culture connoisseurs, night owls, and even the outdoorsy and adventurous can all have fun discovering the different faces of Miami.

What to do in Miami

Try a city tour

Take time away from your sunlounger and explore the city on a guided sightseeing tour. You’ll see how Miami’s Art Deco buildings have been lovingly restored, visit the parks around Coconut Grove and explore the city’s vibrant Cuban and Latin American influences. You’ll finish the tour with a view over Biscayne Bay from Bayside Marketplace.

Where to stay in Miami

Dreamy beach hotels

Check into Dream Miami South Beach or the fantastic 1 Hotel South Beach to be in the heart of the action. For something quieter, venture a little further north to Solé Miami on Sunny Isles Beach or stay at the swish Mr.C Coconut Grove.

Set sail

Add a cruise to your holiday

Miami is the largest and busiest cruise ports in the USA, with ships leaving for the islands of the Caribbean, the shores of South America and beyond. It's easy to add a voyage to the end of your self-drive; a couple of our cruise partners that feature round-trips from here (or 30 miles up the I-95 in Fort Lauderdale) include luxe line Celebrity Cruises, and Royal Caribbean International with its facility packed ships that are a real favourite with families.
