Getting to Key West?!?

Recommended Posts

For all you Key WEst brides out there...how are you planning to get to Key west? Are you flying directly there or flying to Miami and driving? I would love to take the drive from Miami to Key west, but I also don't want to spend two whole days traveling. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

We are flying into Fort Lauderdale and making the drive down. It's only about 3.5 hours from Fort Lauderdale & I second the previous poster -- the drive is too gorgeous to miss!

We flew into Miami and made the drive over, mainly due to the fact we had a ton of frequent flier miles and by doing that it was essentially free. But the fun thing we did on the way home was took a week-long mini-moon, our honeymoon was a couple months later. We took the entire week after our wedding to hop along the Keys on our way back to our flight in Miami. We stayed in Key Largo and Islamorda and went fishing and diving and just lounging on the beach. I thought it was a blast!

Thanks ladies. I have always wanted to makethe drive from Miami to Key West, so I think we have decided to fly into Key West since we want to get there before most of our guests arrive but leave from Miami so we can take our time driving from Key West to Miami and make some stops along the way. I think driving to Key West I would be too eager just to get there to enjoy it like I want to. Thanks for the advice.

I live in Florida and it is a long drive to Key West. It is nice though and if you don't mind long drives it is one of the better options. That or a cruise several leave from Miami and Tampa and probably Jacksonville stopping at Key West.

You will love the drive :) so beautiful!! Me and my FI live in Northwest Florida and are flying into Miami, spending the night, then getting up the next day for the beautiful drive to Key West. We decided to do this for a few reasons.

One, this was the first trip we made as a newly dating couple (the trip we fell in love)

Two, the week we will be down in Key West is going to be crazy, it will be our last few moments to be alone before everyone arrives so the drive is going to be our "Last Date" as dating couple :) cheesy I know, But we felt it was important to have those moments before our friends and family arrive :)

Three, I have a really good friend that is coming up for my Bachelorette that lives in South Florida that has offered to take my decor that I am bring from home back with her and meet us is Miami for us to take with us! Score!!! I dont have to worry about items breaking on the plane or having to pay for extra luggage :)!!

We will be flying out of Key West to Miami, then leaving from Miami to LA, then LA to Maui for our Honeymoon in Hawaii :), the flights will be so long, but so worth it!!!
