The need-to-know on sunny South Florida

Where to start? In the cosmopolitan city of Miami, you can take in a Miami Heat NBA game at the American Airlines Arena, ride on an exhilarating airboat in the Everglades, or a skim the waves in a Miami Vice-style speedboat in Biscayne Bay. Soak up the rays at Fort Lauderdale Beach or take a more leisurely cruise along the Intracoastal Waterway. If shopping is your thing, you're sure to love Sawgrass Mills and Worth Avenue, the Palm Beach equivalent of Beverly Hills' Rodeo Drive. West Palm Beach is also home to the annual South Florida Fair each January. And golf, did we mention there's tons of golf?

Must-see attractions for your bucket list

With so many things to see in South Florida, you'd better get a bucket list together. In Key West, you can marvel at the butterfly conservatory, visit the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum, or take your souvenir photo in front of the Southernmost Point Buoy. Just don’t butt in line, just don’t. Miami offers up history through its Art Deco and Little Havana districts, the gorgeous Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, and the artsy up-and-coming Wynwood neighborhood. Palm Beach is home to the stately 1902 Flagler Museum, while Fort Lauderdale has the Bonnet House Museum and Gardens.

Welcome to the Sunshine State, where Florida sunsets abound

As the only part of the US mainland sporting a tropical climate, it’s no wonder South Florida is a vacation magnet. Spring is one of the best times to visit, when temperatures hover around the high 70s or the low 80s, and you’ll also get a break from the expensive peak-season winter rates. South Florida vacation rentals on the beach are popular with travelers as they provide the perfect backdrop for those amazing sunsets, but if you visit during June to November, you’ll be in hurricane season, so be prepared to batten down those hatches!

Just what's in South Florida, anyway?

With its melting pot of cultures and Latin American influences, South Florida consists of 6 counties with its largest cities being Miami, Hialeah, and Ft. Lauderdale. It stretches from Palm Beach County in the north to Key West in the south. Hugh Taylor Birch State Park in Fort Lauderdale is home to resident raccoons and the threatened Gopher Tortoise, while the isolated Dry Tortugas National Park off Key West has a 19th-century fort, marine life, and coral reefs. The beach at Phipps Ocean Park in Palm Beach is perfect for picnicking and shelling.
