Top 5 Bus Charter Trips from Miami


Believe it our not, Miami is a great place to be in to take a quick bus charter trip for  the day or even multiple days given some great destinations that are near by. Here are the Top 5 destinations for a bus charter trip from Miami.

The Everglades

Distance from Miami: ~1 hour

Everglades National Park offers hours of things to do for educational groups of all ages. There are multiple entrances and visitor centers to the Everglades, each a different distance from the heart of Miami. The Shark Valley Visitor Center in far west Miami and the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center in Homestead are the best places to start your Everglades visit. Both visitor centers offer educational programs like ranger-guided tours by foot and by tram. Your educational group can learn about the diverse native wildlife in the Florida Everglades and the importance of protecting this sprawling wetland. On top of touring a small portion of the 7,800 square miles, your group can also go on a boat ride, canoeing or kayaking, fishing, and bird watching.

Palm Beach

Distance from Miami: ~1.5 hours

Miami definitely has its ritzy neighborhoods but those areas often come with big crowds and hordes of tourists. If you want to soak up the sun, do some luxury shopping, have an upscale waterfront meal, or tour a historic attraction—the Palm Beach area is the perfect place. Do some high-end shopping on Worth Avenue (Palm Beach’s Rodeo Drive), soak up some sun at John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, take a historic tour of Juno Beach Pier, and learn about rescued exotic animals at McCarthy’s Wildlife. Once your group works up an appetite, you’ll find a variety of upscale eateries around South County Road like locally-loved Buccan or Café Boulud.

The Keys

Distance from Miami: ~2 hours

Well, the northernmost Keys at least. Traveling all the way down to Key West from Miami is doable for a day trip, but will take around 3.5 hours each way. You can easily reach Key Largo and Islamorada in under 2 hours, which makes these islands easier for day trips The Keys offer a laid-back atmosphere for adults looking to unwind and fun activities for groups traveling with kids. If you’re an active bunch, plan a day of snorkeling off of Key Largo at Cannon Beach or picturesque John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. Groups that want to stay on land and enjoy the waterfront breeze should grab drinks at ​​Florida Keys Brewing Company or Islamorada Brewery & Distillery. These northern Keys are also home to aquatic wildlife sanctuaries like Theater of the Sea where you can get up close and personal with animals while learning about vital conservation.


Great for: adult and family vacations
Distance from Miami: ~2 hours

Want to feel like a group of retirees for the day? Naples is the place. This small Florida city is located on the East Coast and is often considered a sleepy waterfront retirement town. But don’t worry if you’re traveling with kids and still want a little excitement, Naples will still have some things for you to do. Consider visiting the Naples Botanical Garden or Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary to get in touch with nature, enjoy the sunshine at Lowdermilk Beach or Delnor-Wiggins State Park, and stroll historic areas like Third Street South in Old Naples. If you find that your group has some extra time to spare, consider hopping up north a few miles to Bonita Springs for quiet, pristine beaches and prime golf courses.


Distance from Miami: ~3.5 hours

Okay, traveling from Miami to Orlando may be pushing it for a day trip, but is it doable? Sure. When you’re traveling by charter bus, you won’t have to worry about driving after a long day of fun at Disney World or Universal Studios. Enjoy a day at one of the major theme parks or visit a smaller park like LEGOLAND, Crayola Experience, or Gatorland. There’s plenty to do outside of theme parks in Orlando too. Tour the gorgeous Bok Tower Gardens or Harry P. Leu Gardens, stroll around bustling Downtown Orlando or check out local educational spaces like the Orlando Science Center. If theme parks aren’t your thing, your group can shuttle over to Cape Canaveral to check out the Kennedy Space Center, one of NASA’s most famous facilities.
