Plan now to join us in the fun on this spectacular tour!
Tuesday, February 5th – Your vacation begins with a morning flight from Salt Lake City to West Palm Beach, Florida – the city where the weather is nearly perfect every day. Upon our arrival we’ll board our private chartered motorcoach and travel to our hotel in the trendy, upscale South Beach section of Miami Beach. Our hotel, the Hilton Garden Inn, is located just one block from the beach.
Wednesday, February 6th – This morning we will visit the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. Now an historical landmark, this posh winter villa was built in 1910 as a winter get-a-way for a young bachelor millionaire.
Our tour will include a visit to the main house and time to enjoy the tranquil European inspired gardens which are truly a showpiece.
Today we will also visit “The Yachting Capital of the World,” Ft. Lauderdale, where the average high temperature for February is 77 degrees.
Ft. Lauderdale has over 300 miles of inland waterways. This afternoon we will board a sightseeing boat and cruise past elaborate mansions and celebrity homes, where we will get an up-close look at the massive yachts docked nearby.
Thursday, February 7th – Today we have kept your day free so that you may wish to play as you desire. You have so many options. Perhaps you’ll want to relax on the beach, go shopping or golfing or be pampered at a nearby spa. Another option could include an all-day excursion to picturesque Key West, Florida. On this famous scenic drive you’ll pass over 42 bridges and have free time to enjoy the town before returning to Miami Beach. Whatever you do, it will be a fabulous day in Florida. Enjoy!
Friday, February 8th – Today we will drive from the state’s east coast to the west coast with accommodations at the lovely, new Drury Inn which is located in the resort community of Fort Myers. But before arriving at the hotel we will visit Everglades National Park. Here, a park–trained naturalist will join us on a relaxing and educational tram ride through the extensive swamplands. Be sure to keep an eye out for sleepy alligators basking on the banks of the waterways.
Saturday, February 9th – It just keeps getting better! Just west of the beaches of Fort Myers lie the small islands of Sanibel and Captiva. This morning we will take pleasure in a walk along the beach of Sanibel. Shell-lovers from all over the world make pilgrimages to tiny Sanibel Island, which is considered the best shelling spot in North America according to Travel and Leisure Magazine. Sanibel’s beaches, protected by a broad underwater shelf are perfect for gently receiving deliveries from shell laden currents. The beaches are carpeted with tiny, perfect pastel coquinas and false angel wing shells.
After making a fun lunch stop on the island, we will enjoy the perfect way to get a different perspective of the islands by taking a wildlife and dolphin watch cruise. There is nothing more exciting than to see these beautiful, playful, wild and free Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins in their natural habitat. Southwest Florida is known for exceptional wildlife viewing. In addition to dolphins, one might see white pelicans, ospreys, bald eagles, and a variety of migratory birds.
Sunday, February 10th – This morning after breakfast, we will board our private motorcoach and travel few miles to the winter estates of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. As good friends, they had winter homes next to each other, including 20 acres of botanical gardens. Today we will be treated with not only viewing the homes, but we’ll get to peek inside Edison’s laboratory and Ford’s garage. Be sure to check out the award winning Moonlight Garden, the banyan tree, and the “Friendship Gate.”
After a lunch stop at Fort Myers’ waterfront district, we will travel up the coast to Clearwater, Florida to our ocean-front hotel where you’ll be able to drain away any stress and tension as you sit back, relax and enjoy the white-sand beaches and gorgeous sunsets Clearwater is known for.
Monday, February 11th – Good news! This is your day for relaxation. No group events are planned so that you can unwind on Clearwater Beach. Our beach front hotel location allows you to step outside directly on to sugar-white sand, where you can feel the tranquil Gulf breezes, frolic in the surf or relax in one of the beach cabanas. Clearwater Beach was named the #1 beach in the United States by TripAdvistor in 2015 and 2016.
If you are up for some action, you won’t have to travel far. Some activities you might be interested in are a visit to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, joining a fishing charter, playing a round of golf, or you can rent a car for the day and explore more of Florida. This is a Monday that you’ll want to relive again and again.
Tuesday, February 12 – After a peaceful morning we will depart from Clearwater and travel to nearby Tampa for a lunch stop before arriving at the Tampa airport for our flight back home.
Be sure to enroll soon for the spectacular tour.
