While we are known for our ability to enjoy and thrive in whatever weather situations might appear, those of us who’ve grown up in Miami proper understand that we need to get away from time to time. But where to go? Here are our favorite day trips near Miami, FL with the winter months coming up; if you’ve got something better, be sure to leave it in the comments!
Best Day Trips near Miami, FL
Biscayne National Park
We brag about all the colors you see in our city, but there isn’t any better way to see them than at Biscayne National Park. It isn’t far away, and you can enjoy American crocodiles, green sea turtles and manatees, all from the comfort of your glass-bottom boat. We live in a beautiful place, which is pretty obvious from this vantage.
Kennedy Space Center
4…3…2…1…. Yes, this is where it all happened, and it’s totally worth the drive. The three hours in the car only makes you respect the reasons why the place was chosen — it’s remote, and on the ocean — only make the history of the whole endeavor more remarkable. Bring the whole family, if you have room.

Jungle Queen Riverboat
There is a history to the riverboat idea, and even if it’s somewhat kitschy, it’s worth preserving. Florida wasn’t always “cool,” after all, and sometimes it’s fun to enjoy a setting that reminds us of what our predecessors were doing. We guarantee you’ll have fun here, and don’t doubt you’ll recommend it in the future.
Did you think we’d pick something else? With the miles of coastline, so many iconic bars, record-setting bridges, terrific scenery….man, we can barely help ourselves from getting in the car as we speak. Make your way to Key West, or to the Keys in general, and tell them that Prestige Auto sent you.
Are there places that you prefer to the ones above? We hope you enjoy our selections, we encourage you to add to them in the comments below, and we hope we’ll see you soon at Prestige Imports.
