Travelers that want a near-perfect day trip from Miami often visit Key West, but getting there without a car can be a hassle. Avoid the expense of renting a car with a round-trip transfer, where you're whisked from Miami for a tropical day trip. Along the way, cruise on the Overseas Highway, take in the views of open waters, and enjoy ample time to explore Key West before heading back. Upgrade to include a snorkel tour on the turquoise waters.
