For the modern-day thrill seeker, a simple tour of South Beach, Miami by car or foot doesn't compare to the spectacular birds-eye view you'll ingest from the sky above.
If you want to experience the city as more than a pedestrian in passing, you can take an airplane tour of Miami Beach. Here are a few of the sights you will spot while surfing the clouds.
The Miami Skyline
The towering residential skyscrapers that make Miami the third-ranked tallest skyline in the US shimmer in the heat and stand glorious in formation. The 84-story Panorama Tower and the 789-foot Four Seasons Hotel Miami are just a few of the towers your plane will soar over.
Mansions of Star and Palm Islands
The beautiful islands of Miami are host to many globe-trotting celebrities who live or vacation in the beachside city. You'll be able to wear a paparazzi hat for a day as you skim the mansions of Star and Palm Islands. If you happen to be at the right place at the right time, you could catch celebrated talk show host Oprah Winfrey leaving her multi-million dollar vacation home or spot Latin singer Gloria Estefan dipping her feet in the ocean.
The island town of Key Biscayne is a twinkling gem of the Miami Beach area, known for its impressive resume of high society residents and natural beauty. Key Biscayne is a charming peninsula covered in lush greenery, surrounded by the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, and is buzzing with aquatic activity and mysterious marine life. As you explore from above, allow the ocean deep to lure you into stretches of the unknown.
