Biscayne National Park
Biscayne is within sight of downtown Miami but feels like an exotic retreat. It is an aquatic wonderland with protected islands and vibrant coral reefs full of unique fish. Rumor is there’s 10,000 years of human history in those waters, even including pirate shipwrecks. Visit Biscayne for boating, snorkeling and wildlife watching. For a more laid-back experience, pull up a rocking chair and catch the sights from the Dante Fascell Center.
