From the sun-soaked shores of Key West to the tropical allure of the Bahamas, here are five unforgettable day trips that promise to add a touch of adventure to your stay. 

Discover the Beauty of Key West

Just a stone’s throw away from THesis Hotel lies the enchanting island of Key West, a haven for those seeking the perfect blend of relaxation and exploration. Here you can immerse yourself in the vibrant culture, stroll along Duval Street, swim in the clear waters, and indulge in the local seafood scene. A scenic three-and-a-half hour drive or a leisurely bus ride, which takes four to five hours, will lead you to this idyllic destination.

Cruise Over to the Bahamas

Looking to infuse your Miami getaway with a touch of tropical charm? Look no further than a day trip to the Bahamas. Board a ferry from Fort Lauderdale and set sail to the captivating islands that boast crystal-clear waters and powdery beaches. Whether you’re a fan of water sports, local markets, or simply getting a bit of sun, the Bahamas promises an unforgettable experience that will certainly make you want to come back for more. While the drive to Fort Lauderdale only takes about one hour, the high-speed ferry takes about two hours to arrive in Bimini.

Soak Up the Sun in Fort Lauderdale

A short journey from THesis Hotel, Fort Lauderdale awaits with its blend of sun-soaked beaches and culture-rich neighborhoods. Delve into the city’s artistic scene at the NSU Art Museum, take a leisurely stroll along Las Olas Boulevard, or relax by the Atlantic Ocean’s edge. Whether you choose to drive or hop on the Brightline train, Fort Lauderdale offers a seamless escape from bustling city life. Both a car ride and a train ride will take about one to two hours in total.

Visit Scenic Attractions in West Palm Beach

For an escape that merges sophistication with serenity, consider a day trip to West Palm Beach. Discover the stunning Flagler Museum, a Gilded Age mansion that offers a glimpse into the opulent past. Embrace the tranquility of the Mounts Botanical Garden or enjoy a leisurely day at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. Whether you choose to drive or take the Brightline, this must-see destination is only one and a half to two hours away.

Explore the Best of Orlando

Venture a bit further from THesis Hotel and visit the enchanting city of Orlando, a world-renowned destination for family fun and magical adventures. Kick-off on an unforgettable journey through the various theme parks, including Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort. While Orlando may require a bit more travel time with a three to four-hour drive, the memories created there will make every mile worth it.
