Cuban, Versailles in 8th Street (Little Havana), you might be able to see some Alpha 66 veterans in bar.
In Miami area, South Beach in Miami Beach, walk around or get a bicycle from Decobike system. Keys, Key West, walk around or get a bicycle or if you are staying there longer, day trip (boat) to Dry Tortugas (Fort Jefferson, civil war era fortress), snorkeling (although water might be cool now), history tours in fortress
Jol pretty much said most of the things I could think of. Holiday Isle has chartered fishing boats that you can go out on and catch some big fish. Mahi-Mahi(dolphin) Jack, Grouper, etc. that you might want to eat. Or Marlin, Sailfish, Shark that are usually catch and release gamefish.
Bahia Honda is one of the nicest and most secluded beaches in Florida, with a lot of history. It has some beach side campsites where you can spend the night, and check out the history of the Flagler railroad during the day.
When you get to Key west, rent scooters(mopeds). It's the best way to tour the island. Check out Sloppy Joes bar and just relax, and enjoy the history with all the old photos on the walls from the Hemingway days. They usually have live music too.
Also when you drive through Homestead, stop at a mexican place called La Pasadita just off of Campbell drive. They have the best authentic tacos and burritos in town. Just google La Pasadita Homestead.
