After picking your car up from Miami airport, this trip kicks off in Miami Beach, with two nights accommodation at the Holiday Inn Miami Beach -- which is approximately 300 metres from the beach. Guests can follow the boardwalk south towards the Art Deco-inspired South Beach. There is an outdoor swimming pool (which overlooks the beach) with a hot tub, free Wi-Fi, a cafe, a bar and a restaurant.

Afterwards, take a scenic drive across the 113-mile overseas highway past several state parks to Key West, described as a 'breathtaking American ecosystem' with 'emerald waters' by Frommer's. Accomodation on the island is at the Doubletree Grand Key Resort for two nights -- which is a 15-minute drive from where snorkelers can take excursions to the third largest coral reef on the planet. The hotel has an outdoor pool, a fitness centre, free Wi-Fi, a restaurant and every room has an iPod docking station. The Key West Aquarium is a few minutes drive from the hotel.

The next two nights is spent on 460 metres of sugary white sand at the tip of Estero Island, at the 4-star Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina. The hotel has three heated swimming pools, a 60-metre fishing pier, a restaurant, a bar and water sport activities. You'll find Lovers Key State Park a 15-minute drive away, which encompasses 1,616 acres on four barrier islands and several uninhabited islets.

To end the break, Holiday Inn & Suites Clearwater Beach is where you'll spend the final two nights. Clearwater Beach was named a TripAdvisor Traveller Choice Winner in 2013 and offers activities such as parasailing, scuba diving and deep-sea fishing. There is also Busch Gardens amusement park and the Florida Aquarium within a 15-minute drive from the hotel. There is a restaurant, a beauty salon, an outdoor pool and  free internet in rooms.
