  1. Enjoyed your comprehensive trip description. Revived memories of our camping trip down the Florida Keys in 1975. The attractions you described haven’t changed much especially the crowds applauding the sunset at the tip of Key West. Our favorite part of the USA! Would love to go back there but it’s a long way from our home in New Zealand. At this time we are armchair travellers, safe here from the pandemic.

  2. So much great information, thank you for taking the time to put this together! We are planning a trip to the Keys this summer and your post was super helpful!

  3. We are planning a Miami to Key West road trip in Feb. 2020. We start with two nights in Key West and work back from that. Two nights good there? Where else in the Keys might you recommend another two-night stay?

    1. Yes, two nights in Key West is perfect to explore the major attractions as well as plan a trip to the Dry Tortugas if you want. For the next stop, consider staying in Islamorada or Marathon. It is exactly mid way from Key West to Miami and you have plenty of nearby attractions including Turtle Hospital, Dolphin research center, Florida Keys brewing company, art galleries, etc. Key Largo is another good option but closer to Miami than Key West.

  4. If you are planning to drive to Key West and back in one day, you won’t have time to fully enjoy John Pennekamp State Park. However,  if you are staying somewhere along the way it’s worth spending half a day in this stunning park. If not, visit it on a separate day trip from Miami — it will be time well-spent!

  5. We are planning a road trip to the keys and reading about your experiences is so inspiring. We will definitely be taking some of your advice. Brilliant blog x

  6. Awesome! thank you so much for sharing your experiences and recommendations. I really enjoyed and appreciate it 🙂
