Day 1 - Welcome to Miami
Arrive at Miami International Airport and transfer to your hotel. Miami’s South Beach has an eclectic mix of attractions for you to enjoy, including thumping nightlife, great restaurants, world class shopping, wonderful Art Deco architecture and let’s not forget, the stunning white sand beach and crystal-clear waters.
Day 2 - Key Largo (60 miles)
This morning you will pick up your motorcycle and start your ride through Florida’s tropical paradise. Due to heavy traffic, riding around in Miami’s downtown is not a great idea – your best bet is to ride into South Beach. A hundred years ago this was just a mangrove swamp until some developers dredged up sand from the ocean floor, paved the swamp and turned it into a tropical getaway.
All the way along the Overseas Highway (Highway 1) the roadside is lined by marker posts counting down the miles from Florida City to Key West. The overseas highway is the very southern section of US 1, the historic route that winds for over 2,400 miles along the full length of the east coast. From its very inception, this highway has been unique. Today’s destination is Key Largo, this is where you will stay the night.
Day 3 - Key West (110 miles)
Continue on one of the country’s most fascinating rides – the overseas highway now affords longer glimpses of water that shift from emerald green to azure blue. En route to Key West you will cross dozens of bridges, pass over harbours, view the Atlantic waters on one side and the Florida Bay on the other. The Keys are as much Caribbean as Floridian and you cannot get this far from the American mainstream without leaving the country anywhere else. Key West itself is quite unique, a laid-back community and still one of the most lively and anarchic places in the USA. Sights of interest range from Ernest Hemingway’s home and the famed Sloppy Joe’s Bar, to the Edison Home and the southernmost point in the United States.
Day 4 - Florida City (130 miles)
This morning, pick up Highway 1 and are off to Florida City. This is your entrance to Everglades National Park. Covering over 1.5 million acres at the far southwestern tip of mainland Florida, the Everglades National Park protects the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. A fair portion of the park is underwater, the entire Everglades ecosystem is basically a giant, slow-flowing river that is 50 miles wide, but averaging only a few inches deep. The Everglades are under constant threat yet seem to vibrate with life. Some 300 species of birds breed here, as do 600 different kinds of fish and animals, ranging from rare manatees to abundant alligators.
Day 5 - Naples (115 miles)
This morning you have time to explore more of the Everglades before you continue north towards Naples. Naples is the crown jewel of southwest Florida, nestled on the sun-drenched beaches of The Gulf of Mexico, it’s a real hit with water lovers and those looking for some rest and relaxation.
Day 6 - Orlando (235 miles)
Today, you are riding along Florida’s west coast – Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Venice, St. Petersburg, Tampa – on Highway 41. Florida’s west coast embraces all the extremes, buzzing, youthful towns rise behind placid fishing hamlets, mobbed holiday strips are just minutes from desolate swamplands.
Surprises are plentiful and the stunning sunset views are rivalled only by those of the Florida Keys. In Tampa, the west coast’s largest city, you can jump on to Highway 4 and head to Orlando, where you will stay the night.
Day 7 - Miami (250 miles)
Orlando is home to Disneyland, Universal Studios and Sea World, and you might want to take some time this morning to visit one of these theme parks. Later, make your way over to the east coast and ride down to Miami. Upon arrival in Miami it will be time to return your motorcycle and transfer to your final hotel.
