Sometimes the best way to get to know a city is to get lost in it. While exploring on foot is a great way to pop in and out of shops and attractions easily, other modes of transportation allow you to see a destination in a different way—whether that means you see more of a city than you would on foot, or you simply see it from a different perspective. To make the most of your time in Florida, let our team share a few different types of Miami excursions and tours to take during your stay at Hotel St. Augustine.
The Most Extreme Miami Excursions: Helicopter and Boat Tours
While a 15-30 minute helicopter tour of Miami might seem like a short time, the aerial perspective of the city is unbelievable. Plus, how often do you get the opportunity to ride in a helicopter? Understand the city from above, and how its unique districts fit together before you wander through the streets. Take off from Opa-Locka Executive Airport.
While generally most boat tours are tame, Thriller Miami Speedboat Adventures does it a little differently: on their Miami boat tours, expect to cruise at high speeds and hang on during 180 spins on the water with 84 other passengers. However, if you prefer your Miami excursions to be less wild, sign up for Big Bus Tour’s boat outings: where you cruise down the coast of Biscayne Bay, displaying the waterfront luxury homes on Millionaire’s Row.
Hop on and off of Miami bus tours all day long, giving you quicker transportation from one attraction that you choose to the next. Different loops take you to different districts, whether it’s South Beach, Wynwood Walls, Ocean Drive, or the Art Deco District. Don’t sleep on the nighttime bus tour option, where you sit on the upper deck of the bus, while you gaze at the illuminated Miami lights past sunset.
If you’ve never ridden a segway before, don’t sweat it: most people find that it’s very intuitive. So, just go with it and enjoy the wind through your hair as you roll through Miami Beach during the day, or a sunset tour of South Beach right before dusk. Segway tours in Miami range from 30 minutes to 2.5 hours, so you can choose how long you want to be out on your Miami excursions.
