When South Florida opened up to homesteaders in the late 19th century, the construction workers' camp eventually became the town of Homestead. Homestead has grown a lot since then, and is nowa suburb of the area's biggest city, Miami. Its proximity to that city and the Florida Keys, as well as its location between the Everglades and Biscayne National Park, make Homestead a wonderful vacation destination. Book a stay in one of the top hotels in Homestead and you'll feel like it's your home away from home.
Homestead is 34 miles southwest of Miami International Airport, and you can get there by taxi, or by taking a train and then a bus. The best option is probably to rent a car before you go—there's so much to see in South Florida and having your own wheels is the easiest way to get around. You can also rent a car in Homestead when you're ready to hit the road. Whether you're staying long-term or just passing through and spending the night in one of the Homestead motels, don't miss Coral Castle, a series of structures and sculptures created by one man in tribute to his lost love. The Everglades begin just a few miles west of Homestead, and you can take a drive through before hopping on a boat for a more detailed tour. Key Largo is 30 miles to the south, and is a wonderful spot for a day trip. It also serves as the gateway to the rest of the Keys, leading 100 miles west to Key West. For a great night out, check in at one of the cheap hotels in Miami and then head to legendary South Beach to party the night away.
