Hi Yap,

Will you have a car while in Miami?

There are many sights to see between Miami and the FL Keys.

I recommend taking a sightseeing tour, a cruise around Biscayne Bay, take a trip to the FL everglades, take a jet ski tour, rent some bikes for a day, and then either drive to the FL Keys while taking your time to get there, or take a bus.

There are also options available for transport from Key West to Orlando.

I'm glad you are getting a chance to see parts of Florida outside of Orlando!

Since you say you like to drive, here's what I would do -

Day 1 - drive to Florida City (abt 4 hours) and visit the Everglades. Directions are here.


Find lodging in Key Largo or Tavernier. Maybe look at the Ramada Inn/Holiday Inn complex in Key Largo for this night.

Day 2 - morning snorkel trip and then off to Key West

Stop and feed the tarpon along the way.

Days 3 -5 - Key West

Day 6 - back to the Upper Keys - maybe an afternoon kayak trip?

Day 7 - drive to Orlando.
