Key West Travel Information and Tips.

There are various Key West Travel services available for all budgets and needs. How to get here and how to move around are important parts of the Key West happy vacation planning puzzle.

Time is ticking and you don't want to waste your time. Not at the Florida Keys or Key West! Is too much to see and do here!

Getting here by road.

From anywhere is only one way and one road-US 1-Scenic Highway-Overseas Highway-is all the same. Across the Florida keys roads and bridges you'll get to Key West.

Signs indicate the route to take to Key West.

Located 160 miles from the city of Miami. Closer to Cuba than to the continental USA, 90 miles from Cuba to be more precise.

So you have decided to drive to Key West.

The trip from Miami to Key West takes only from 3.5 to 4 hour depending on traffic and weather conditions. The traffic is normally easy flowing on US 1. And the weather? Sometimes it rains but that’s not too bad, considering that most of the times it is sunny here.

There are a wide range of car rental places in the vicinity of the Miami International Airport, that if there is where you are coming from you can try for a good deal.

Once you have driven the 135 miles (4 hours) over the Scenic Highway Key West you need to know where to park and where to go in town.
