Daily Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive into Miami in time for dinner at a Brazilian Steakhouse. Come hungry! Gauchos arrive tableside with various cuts of juicy grilled meats. Tell them how you like it, they carve and you eat! Delicious! From presentation to service, everything about the meal is an experience. Hilton Garden Inn – Miami at Dolphin Mall (D)

Day 2

Tour exclusive Coral Gables and Coconut Grove neighborhoods with a local guide and learn how some daring, enterprising women turned this swampy backwater into a truly international city. Cruise down Ocean Drive in South Beach, America’s largest historic Art Deco District. After lunch on your own, it’s off to the Everglades. Board an airboat to learn about the residents and the unique ecology. Keep your hands inside the ride at all times. Those alligators are real! Mother Nature serves up magnificent sunsets in Key Largo. Dinner features fresh local seafood (landlubber options available) at a funky island hotspot! Hampton Inn – Key Largo (B,D)

Day 3

Travel the Overseas Highway, a ribbon of road stretching over 100 miles into the ocean. As the sun dances on the water, you’ve never seen so many shades of blue! At a dolphin research center, learn about their mission and watch as scientists work with local dolphins in an effort to promote conservation. Each dolphin has its own distinct personality. Can you spot the class clown? After a dockside lunch, visit the Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory, arguably one of the best in the country. Check into your perfectly situated hotel on Duval Street, the heart of town. Dinner is included tonight. Crowne Plaza La Concha – 4 nights (B,L,D)

Day 4

A trolley tour of the island gives you the history and sordid stories of the Conch Republic’s residents, past and present. Lunch is at famous Sloppy Joe’s Bar, home to the namesake sandwich. Grab a drink and listen to live music or take the afternoon to shop in Mallory Square. Tonight we gather for a lovely dinner served al fresco at LaTeDa, followed by a lively female-impersonation performance. Stick around after the show to meet the performer. Ask all your burning questions, and be prepared for an honest answer! (FB,L,D)

Day 5

Harry S. Truman was a huge fan of the island and visited frequently during his presidency, conducting official business under the palm trees at the Little White House. After touring, taste the best of Key West! Board a trolley and stop for all the island’s classics: Key Lime Pie (TWICE!), Cuban Sandwiches, Conch Fritters and Conch Chowder. While sipping a cold beer, wine or tropical fruit juice on a topsail schooner traverse the southern coast as our captain shares local history and ecology of the area. Join your Tour Director for a nightly Key West tradition, the Sunset Celebration. Every night, the island turns out to grab a cocktail, toast the sunset and watch one of the many street buskers perform daredevil acts. Only in Key West! (FB,L)

Day 6

At Ernest Hemingway’s home hear about the author who was as known for his work as his antics. How many toes does that cat have? Six?! You counted correctly! These famous kitties spend the day lounging and posing for tourists. It’s a rough life! With tropical memories and perhaps a new book in hand, board your flight, arriving into Sacramento by the early evening. (FB)​​​​​​​
