How to get to Key West

How to get there: Airports at Key West and nearby Marathon have regularly scheduled flights from Miami. If going by car, Key West is 159 miles south of Miami. Get on U.S. highway No. 1 and drive south until you literally can’t go any further. It’s an easy drive down the Causeway, past Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon, Big Pine Key and finally Key West.

Along the way, the beaches and fishing are fantastic.
