Cosmos Florida Discovery (8400)

10 days from Orlando to Orlando 
Join Cosmos on this sun-soaked tour around Florida, including the state’s east and west coasts and the Florida Keys. Your tour begins and ends in Orlando with overnights also in Cocoa Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Key West, Fort Myers, and Clearwater Beach. Along the way, stroll on the white-sand beaches, enjoy gorgeous sunsets, and feel the sun drain away tension as you sit back, relax, and let Cosmos handle the details and the driving!

On this Florida tour, you’ll spend time in St. Augustine, the oldest city in the United States. An included hop-on/hop-off trolley tour highlights the city’s history and attractions. You’ll also visit Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center, where you’ll learn about America’s space program during your NASA tour. In Fort Myers, visit the winter homes of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. As good friends, they had winter homes next to each other, including 20 acres of botanical gardens. Your time in Fort Lauderdale includes an excursion to Miami Beach, where you can explore the art deco buildings and beautiful palm-lined South Beach.

A highlight of this tour is the ride you’ll take on an airboat through the swamplands in the Everglades, the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. Keep an eye out for sleepy alligators basking on the banks of the waterways. But that’s not all…also enjoy the drive to picturesque Key West, which crosses over 42 bridges. In Key West, you’ll have plenty of free time to explore the town. Be sure to capture the beautiful sunset! Finally, you’ll enjoy free time in Clearwater Beach, one of Florida’s most popular resort cities. Relax on the sugar-white sands and take advantage of warm-weather activities.

Gorgeous beaches, interesting experiences, and striking scenery…this Florida tour designed for value-minded travelers has it all!
