Yachts have a reputation for being party-mobiles. But wild celebrations aren’t the only reason you should consider chartering a luxury yacht in South Florida. History buffs will have the pleasure of knowing that a luxury charter rental can transform into a time machine that takes them through the rich history of Florida in real-time. When learning about Miami by boat, you will experience sights, sounds, and memories that will last a lifetime.
This blog post will explain how a private charter can be far more than a party boat and how they are the best way to experience Miami’s rich history.
History of Florida
Biscayne Bay was instrumental in Miami’s growth during the 20th century. The Bay was formed between 5,000 and 2,400 years ago after sea levels rose. Also get a glimpse of Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, a 1920s-style colonial villa with French gardens, mosaic pools, and a beautiful view of the Bay.
Fort Zachary Taylor
This Civil War-era fort, located at the southern tip of Key West, was constructed in 1845. After a handful of crucial Civil War battles, it was also used in 1898 for the Spanish–American War, as well as in World Wars I and II, and the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Art Deco Historic District
Hit Art Deco to see Gianni Versace’s former stomping grounds along with other beautiful pieces of Miami’s historic flair.
If you have the stamina, journey down to Key West, the southernmost city and the home of the continental U.S.’s best sunset. You can also check out Dry Tortugas National Park, home to Fort Jefferson and world-class snorkeling. The port town is famous for Margaritaville and being the place that inspired Jimmy Buffett to sing.
Since 1891, The Barnacle has stood in Miami. It’s now the city’s oldest house and was once home to one of Coconut Grove’s most influential pioneers, Ralph Middleton Munroe. The American yacht architect also founded the still-active Biscayne Bay Yacht Club. Sitting cozily along the Biscayne Bay, it’s a must-see for anyone who wants a taste of what it was like when boats were the greatest means of transportation known to man.
Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park
The famous lighthouse at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park is the oldest standing structure in the city. Since 1895, it’s stood on edge of Key Biscayne. In addition to history, enjoy swimming and kayaking on the beach, as well as daily guided tours of the lighthouse.
