This tour unites the populated amusement parks and glitzy hotels typical for Florida with the picturesque, remote southern swamplands. Start in Miami for its cultural life and luxury hotels and to bask in the sunshine of the Biscayne Bay. Visit Miami's Venetian Pool and Museum of Science and Space Transit Planetarium before heading west to the Everglades. Once there, stop in the Everglades National Park for a wonderland of swamps, salt parries, pine islands, alligators, water turkeys, and spoonbills. A bit farther, the Miccosukee Indian Village provides an opportunity to capture Native Americans in the act of craft-making and art. Head east to the last stop of the trip, Fort Lauderdale, a city of rivers, canals, bays, and islands.
