Brightline Makes Florida Even More Accessible In 2017

In 2017, Florida visitors will have the option to explore even more of the Sunshine State with a rail service that connects the cities of Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Brightline trains are a brand new way of touring South Florida cities. The journey starts in Miami and ends at West Palm, but by 2018 the route will extend to the city of Orlando.

 The trains, which will be operational by mid-2017, are packed with amenities like Wi-Fi, power outlets, food and beverage selection options, spacious luggage racks and bike storage. The coaches are pet-friendly and wheelchair-accessible. Brightline cuts down the travel time between the cities and allows visitors more time to experience the vast vacation options the Sunshine State has to offer. Begin planning a multi-city Florida vacation now. Here are just a few enticing ideas for your itinerary:


Miami is the cultural hotbed of the state, with fascinating art work to happening nightlife. Just a few blocks from the station you’ll find Wynwood Walls. This neighborhood used to be a rundown warehouse district but has been revitalized as an outdoor art exhibit with colorful street murals painted by artists from around the globe. Each year at Art Basel, up-and-coming and well-known artists are commissioned to paint over the previous works and create new masterpieces for the public to enjoy.

 For nightlife, look no further than South Beach. Start with a sunset bike cruise along the water, and then head to Hakkasan, a chic Cantonese restaurant located in the iconic Fontainebleau hotel. Many celebrities are often spotted dining here or dancing the night away at LIV, the nightclub within this resort style hotel. In fact, famed actress Sonakshi Sinha was seen enjoying the cuisine at Hakkasan just 2 months ago.

 Fort Lauderdale:

Fort Lauderdale is best known for its beaches and waterways. Cruise atop the water in a gondola or in one of the city’s many water taxis. Or view the ocean from underneath. The sinking of Lady Luck, a 324-foot ship, took place just a mile from the Pompano Beach fishing pier and is the centerpiece of the new Shipwreck Park for divers. Complete with underwater art exhibits, it is one of the largest contributions to Florida’s artificial reef system and is the most easily accessible major dive site in the nation. At least 16 other shipwrecks are in the vicinity. Shipwreck Park is expected to become a major dive site and underwater arts park for divers.

 West Palm Beach:

West Palm is known for its luxurious vacation options. With is grand size and over-the-top opulence, The Breakers is famous for accommodating large Indian weddings. Due to the hotel’s reputation for top-level services, it is also an amazing option for honeymoons, vow renewals or other special occasions.

 For delicious dining options, there are plenty to pick from in this seaside city. In September 2016, celebrated South Florida Chef and season nine "Top Chef" finalist Lindsay Autry, along with partner and seasoned restaurateur Thierry Beaud, opened THE REGIONAL Kitchen & Public House to critical acclaim. Located in downtown West Palm Beach's popular dining and entertainment destination, CityPlace, Autry's hand-crafted, soulful menu blends her Southern roots with Mediterranean flavors.


The theme park capital of the world has some exciting new offerings for its visitors. At Florida’s Legoland Resort, the rainbow glazed 150-acre resort, well known for its interactive rides and shows, is all set to surprise the world with its new NINJAGO experience starting 12th January, 2017. Kids are welcomed to be the Ninja of their choice in this martial arts haven.

 Walt Disney World now offers visitors a Frozen Ever After experience at Epcot. Bring the family and experience the joy of the Frozen movie come to life as Queen Elsa, Anna, Olaf and Kristoff celebrate a “snow day” at the newest Disney attraction.

 Indians visitation numbers to Florida continue to increase every year. In 2015, 70,000 Indians came to visit the Sunshine State – a 25% increase from the previous year. With the additional airline routes, including a Turkish Airline flight to Miami and an Emirates flight to Orlando, as well as the new Brightline train system, it’s easier than ever to enjoy a vacation in the Sunshine state.
