Tropical Horizons  

Two Floridian favourites

Match up Miami and Key West and you’re in for a fun time in Florida

Miami’s South Beach and Art Deco eye candy is just the beginning of this diverse and decadent city. After getting to know your favourite spots, take a memorable trip across the Overseas Highway – a road and bridges linking the Florida Keys. Eventually, you’ll reach Key West at the southernmost point of the USA. This little Key may be small compared to Miami, but it’s bubbling with personality, nightlife, and tropical beauty.
