Everglades visitors can take in the park's lush tropical vistas along excellent trails like Shark Valley and the Anhinga Trail and get up-close with the state's celebrated alligators by hopping aboard Buffalo Tiger's Airboat Tours.
World-class cuisine and vibrant nightlife along with an authentic sampling of Cuban and Haitian cultures are a bit of what a luxury vacation in Miami has in store, along with the city's spectacular beaches.
