    A Day Trip to Art Basel

    It is essentially the world’s biggest modern art museum re-assembled and re-curated every year. The depth and breadth of the artwork really must be seen to be believed. Our luxury motor coach will depart Key West in the morning and reach the convention center in time for the noon opening. We will spend the day at the main Art Basel show. Entry is included in the price. There are also several satellite shows, such as Design Miami and Scope, within walking distance. As parking can cost upwards of $30 per day and often isn’t available near the convention center, bus travel saves significant time and money, and is significantly less stressful.
