Approximately a 45-minute drive southwest of Port Miami and Miami International Airport you’ll find the area of Homestead and Florida City. This area boasts a lot of history as well as exciting adventures! Florida City is the southernmost municipality in the South Florida area.
Stroll along the street of the historical downtown of Homestead and stop into the City Hall Museum to get an idea of what life was like for the founding fathers. The antique fire truck provides a great backdrop for selfies!
Explore the natural beauty of Everglades National Park with a tour on foot, by kayak, by airboat or other motorized boat. You will see a diverse landscape full of birds and other wildlife as well as many types of exotic plants.
If you want to see the king of the Everglades in a more sedate, but no less exciting way, head to the Everglades Alligator Farm. You might try your hand at feeding one of the beasts!
Another one of Homestead’s exciting adventures lies at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. If you’ve never experienced the heart-pounding thrill of watching a race in person, now’s the time!
History shows itself in the mysterious and odd Coral Castle. The sculpture garden was carved by Edward Leedskalnin from 1923 to 1951 out of 1100 tons of coral rock. Done long before modern building techniques, no one knows how he did it and his processes are debated still to this day. He claimed to “know the secrets of the pyramids”. Maybe he did?
After all this adrenalin-pumping and mind-blowing activity you might prefer to relax on the beach, right? Check out Homestead Bayfront Park for boating from the marina, fishing, or just some fun in the sand.
