Basecamps - Miami and The Everglades
Page 2 of 7   |  

Hang with the beautiful people in this sizzling South Florida city or head to the proverbial hills. Miami is a vibrant young city, the meeting point for world cultures, a city where salsa music plays under the royal palms and pastel pink Art Deco hotels crowd the beachfront. Miami is home to biking and hiking trails galore and provides easy access to both Everglades and Biscayne National parks.

Fort Lauderdale
Spring break made it famous but this seaside metropolis offers more than roudy college students. You'll find soft beaches and easy access to the Loxahatchee Wildlife Reserve.

Fort Meyers & Sanibel
Thomas Edison once called it home during the winter months. Now the Fort Meyers area and its mangrove-lined waterways and tropical beachfront make a great getaway for outdoorsy travelers and families.

There's more to Naples than golf and big homes. The area offers easy access to both the Everglades and Big Cypress, and it's home to nature museums and opportunities for hiking, biking, and kayaking.
