Description

Explore the alligator-filled waters and fragile ecosystems of the Everglades, cruise the sun-drenched waters of the Gulf of Mexico, visit the historic estates of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, and get up-close to Florida wildlife on a working cattle ranch on this 2-day tour of Florida's natural attractions.

Day 1
Hop aboard a comfortable coach and ride out of Miami, headed northwest into the swampy wilderness of the Florida Everglades, zipping down Alligator Alley with nothing but the flat and greenish expanse of the wetlands stretching out around you as far as the eye can see. At the Billie Swamp Safari, jump on an airboat to scope out the fish, snakes, turtles, and alligators that call these grassy waterways home.

After the ride, check out informative exhibits and displays, stroll a boardwalk trail beneath draping cypress trees, and meet Liberty, the park's resident panther. Break for lunch in Bonita Springs, and then arrive in Sanibel Island, where you can enjoy some free time to walk around or lay out on the beach before a sunset cruise. Watch the last glimmers of daylight from the calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico before checking into your hotel for the night.

Day 2
After fueling up at the hotel's continental breakfast, kick off your second day with a visit to the Edison and Ford Winter Estates. Passionate historians guide you around the grounds of the Edison compound, the adjoining Ford Estate, the enchanting Moonlight Garden, and the 1928 Edison Botanic Research Corporation Laboratory, where you can learn about the accomplishments of these American innovators and inventors.

Continue north to arrive at a working cattle ranch, where you embark on the Babcock Wilderness Adventure Tour to discover 4 different Florida ecosystems and identify local wildlife with an expert guide. On the return ride to Miami, stop at a fashionable outlet mall to scope out deals on designer goods.
