Everglades-Biscayne-Dry Tortugas NP Itinerary

Greetings - We're looking for an itinerary that includes Florida's National Parks: the Everglades, Biscayne and the Dry Tortugas. We are 3 ladies traveling from Boston and we're probably looking at 7-8 days. Would love to hear how you did it, what you liked/disliked, when you traveled, what you'd do different, and anything else you'd like to share. Thanks in advance!

You'll need a car. I'd stay in Florida City/Homestead for the first few nights - though it's mainly budget motel accommodation (there are some nice clean motels with breakfast).

Visit the Everglades NP entering near Homestead - stop off at the Ernest Coe VC. Go to Robert is Here fruit stand first for shakes and smoothies. Walk the trails and maybe take a boat trip from Flamingo marina.

Biscyane is in the opposite direction about 20 mins. from Homestead. Do a snorkel trip and boat trip.

Head down to Key West for the rest of the week and take the boat the Dry Tortugas.
