In Miami, visitors can have the best of both worlds: days exploring some of the most unique and expansive national parks and preserves in the U.S., and nights spent savoring a great meal, then enjoying a luxurious hotel experience. Whether you choose to hike, paddle, or take a boat or tram tour in Everglades National Park; meander scenic boardwalks, loop drives and backcountry trails in Big Cypress National Preserve; or boat, snorkel and fish in the clear turquoise waters of Biscayne National Park, one thing is certain. You'll come away with experiences in nature that you'll never forget.

When traveling to Greater Miami and the Beaches, we ask that you do so responsibly. Please see our current:

Everglades National Park

Close to Miami, discover a vast wilderness that's a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only ecosystem of its kind in the world. Explore the "River of Grass" and its forests, marshes and coastal waters - home to panthers, American crocodiles, manatees and more than 400 species of water birds.

Biscayne National Park

Beautiful both above and below water, Biscayne National Park bekons to divers, snorkelers and fishermen who appreciate its clear, emerald waters, barrier reefs and several shipwrecks. Boat tours and ranger programs round out a visit to this natural treasure within eyesight of downtown Miami

Dive Into Biscayne National Park

Big Cypress National Preserve

West of Miami is America's first national preserve, Big Cypress. This swampy wilderness can be explored on elevated boardwalks - or even better, by kayak, swamp buggy or airboat. Designated an International Dark Sky Place, the preserve is an amazing place to appreciate the wonders of the night sky.
