3 Florida Summer Getaway Destinations in Your New BMW X5


A summer vacation isn’t just about arriving at your destination—it’s also about making the journey to get there. And for that reason, the BMW X5 SUV is the perfect summer getaway vehicle. Check out these incredible Florida vacation spots that you and your BMW X5 can head to when the temperatures start percolating.


  1. St. Augustine

If you’re planning a family trip around Florida, St. Augustine is a great choice. The city is steeped in history, so feel free to use your trip there as an enjoyable learning experience. Check out the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park, Anastasia State Park, or any of the world-class beaches. There’s something in St. Augustine for every member of the family.

The drive from Miami to St. Augustine is under five hours, but with the X5 as your family’s chauffeur, don’t expect to hear the kids complaining. The BMW X5 is roomy, so they’ll have plenty of space to spread out. The second row has reclining seats, and everyone can relax with music cascading out of the SUV’s nine-speaker audio system. If the music doesn’t calm them, the built-in Wi-Fi hotspot might give them something to do.

  1. Key West

Although Key West is beautiful any time of the year, summer is an ideal time to visit the “Place After Which Pies Are Named.” That’s because tourism seemingly decreases in the summer, giving you free reign over the town.


Try your hand at scuba diving or enjoy your stay at one of Key West’s luxurious resorts. With the BMW X5, you can also tow your boat to the Keys and test it out in unchartered waters. Your X5 gives you the freedom to take your boat with you thanks to a towing capacity of well over 5,000 pounds.

  1. Lake Okeechobee

For a little family bonding time, take a summer getaway to Lake Okeechobee. Known as Florida’s Inland Sea, this lake is over 700 square miles—the largest in all of Florida—so there’s plenty of room for you to do some exploring with or without rod and reel.


Your X5 has enough room to store all of your fishing gear, so there’s no excuse for not catching your own dinner. Store your equipment in the abundant cargo area—the X5 offers 66 cu. ft. of maximum space— or on the add-on roof rack, which can be ordered and installed by our South Motors BMW location. And the bottom liftgate makes accessing all your gear simple.
