We are a 50 ish married couple from England and arrive into Miami from our Carnival cruise ship in mid December. We have not visited before and have 5 nights to spend before we fly back. Would rather not stay in Miami for the duration as we would like to get out of the larger towns and see a little of your real country.
We like good food and drink, sunbathing, shopping and some non-touristy sightseeing. We have a rental car booked and wondered if it would be best to head for the Keys and spend our time there or to travel around and try and take in a few different places? Would there be enough to see and do in the Keys for that length of time? We obviously don't want to spend the majority of time in the car but don't mind travelling if the destination is worth it.
Would be grateful of your opinions, particularly where to eat good local food in unusual or traditional surroundings as our evening meals are a priority time for us. Money is not a particular issue, thankfully.
Thanks for your advice in anticipation.
Kevin & Helen.
