New York to Key West
Flight Time: 3 hours, 35 minutes
Welcome to the End of the USA, a string of 113 islands split into three regions. En-route to Key West, you'll pass through the Upper Keys where you'll find Key Largo, the Diving Capital of the World and home to North America's only living coral barrier reef, as well as Spiegel Grove, a 510 foot sunken navy ship; Islamorada – another 'capital of the world' – this time of sport-fishing; and through the laid-back, more natural delights of the Lower Keys before hitting your final destination.
And what a destination it is. The southernmost point in the US, it's famous for its watersports, effervescent nightlife, beautiful beaches and historic sites. Don't miss Duval Street, one of the most energetic strips of shops, bars and cafes in all the land; or Sloppy Joe's bar – a favourite hangout of novelist Ernest Hemingway, and the perfect place for something refreshing visiting the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum (look for the celebrated six-toed cats).
Stay: Ocean Key Resort & Spa (4 nights)
