A trip to the magical Key West while on vacation in Florida, is one of the biggest tourist attractions, which you absolutely have to find time for, time during your summer trip to the southern United States. If your trip to Florida will last a few weeks, such a trip is the most sense. Free time is here of great importance to fully utilize and enjoy the journey to Key West. If you plan to come to Key West and spend here a night or two here in our opinion does not make any sense. You will need more time to fully enjoy Key West.
Many people planning a vacation in Florida, thinking that in a week or ten days they manage to explore the entire Florida, visiting all of the biggest attractions of Florida.
Nothing could be more misleading. Robust trip to Key West, in our opinion, should be planned at least for three days and three nights in one of the hotels on Key West or in the apartment for rent at Key West. Here you will also find real estate for rent, in southern Florida in Key West area.
If you are going to come here for one or two days, it’s really a shame your time and effort. Well I guess that you are not belong to such viewers and “visitors” to Florida watching tourist atttractions through a car windows.
ON THE WAY TO KEY WEST
Driving from Miami to Key West is a great attraction in itself. Along the way, goes to a lot of bridges and islands which, like chain link specific islands in a long ribbon of asphalt, where at the very end is the purpose of our trip – magical Key West. Invariably associated by us from the fertile literary works of Ernest Hemingway, “A little Cuban”. Atmosphere and tropical vegetation, and the proximity of Cuba and films like “Miami Vice” or “Specialist” by Sylvester Stallone in the lead role. The road from Miami to Key West, it perpetuates in so many American films. That extremely interesting images that we have in mind, that we associate with Key West, Florida, Miami and surrounding areas.

If you are traveling from Miami to Key West, then after a few kilometers/miles you will enter on a two-lane road leading through all the Keys, to the Key West. Keys is a string of islands, connected by bridges at the moment.
The views on both sides of the road, from the very beginning of journey, do not look too interesting on the first glimpse. Along the road erected tall metal fence made of mesh fencing, presumably for the safety of travelers and probably protecting wild animals living in the southern region of Florida.
Subconsciously you will be looking at an alligator or some other wild animal known from the tourist guides, but rather small are chances to spot a creature while driving fast car, through sun ablaze road to Key West …
ALMOST IN MARATHON
Interesting things during the trip from Miami to Key West, start properly at the height of the Marathon. But before you can through the car window start to see very interesting things. With film images in my head the way from Miami to Key West, a highway in the sun sinking quickly come to the conclusion that it is not a highway, and a lot of towns and cities located along the road that bloom and teeming with life. Lived here hundreds of thousands of people. Working, living and living on the thin strip of land, at least as looking at a geographical map of Florida.
Islets that you will pass in the order on the way to Key West is: Key Largo, Tavernier, Islamorada, Marathon, Big Pine Key, Sumerland Key, Cudjoe Key, Sugarloaf Key, Boca Chica Key, Stock Island, and finally Key West itself.
