      About this trip

      Yes, we know that South Florida is known for it's warm weather, pristine beaches and the non-stop nightlife, but there is so much more to do and see!

      We invite you to discover the off the beach, off the beaten path parts of South Florida that offer local, authentic cultural immersive experiences in West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Key West!

      This is the only multi-day tour itinerary that showcases rich Black cultural heritage found throughout South Florida. Our small, intimate group experiences provide ample opportunities to get up close and personal and to dive deeper in exploring South Florida's diverse Black cultural heritage through food, music, art, dance and stories of the past and present told by locals.

      Don't worry! We'll leave plenty of free time if the beaches and nightlife are a must do for you!

      Off the Beach and Off the Beaten Path

      • Engage in this transformative experience while supporting and helping to sustain Black-owned businesses.
      • Dive deep into South Florida’s Black cultural heritage on interactive, inspiring bus tours visiting several heritage neighborhoods such as Historic Overtown, Little Haiti, Little Havana, Virginia Key Beach and the Sistrunk Corridor. You'll visit historic sites such the Historic Hampton House, African American Research Library & Cultural Center and the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum.
      • Gain a deeper understanding of Black cultural heritage when you explore diverse cultures found in West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Key West. You'll become immersed in African American, Caribbean and Afro-Cuban cultures through food, dance, art, music and meeting locals. 
      • Explore South Florida with local expert guides and learn about their rich heritage and communities while visiting cultural museums and small Black-owned businesses.

      The trip was cancelled at the last minute. I wasted my money on travel insurance and a cancelled flight.
