Top 7 Reasons Why Key West is an Easy Getaway


Top 7 Reasons Why Key West is an Easy Getaway

A getaway to Paradise that’s quick, easy, and affordable? Yep, for real. If you’ve been daydreaming at your desk lately about brilliant turquoise waters, spectacular sunsets, partying til the break of dawn, and enjoying a few days filled with sun and fun, then a getaway to Key West may be just what the doctor ordered. Sure there are lots of sunny places to getaway to, so why Key West? For starters, here are 7 reasons Key West is the tropical tops…

1.     Easy Access Flights
Key West is the Southern most point of the Continental U.S., which makes it feel worlds away, but at the same time, it is super easy to get to. You can fly into Miami direct and catch a quick, 45-minute commuter flight from Miami to Key West. You’re in. Easy peasy.
2.     Drivable (and GORGEOUS!)
Not only can you drive to the furthest island in the magical string of Florida Keys, but you are also guaranteed the most scenic drive of your life! SEE: The Most Beautiful Drives in the USA. Make that amazing drive an adventure and stop up the keys for lunch. There are so many waterfront places to eat, your hardest choice is to choose where. You can also swim with the Dolphins, or stop at Bahia Honda beach or Pennekamp Park. The beaches have white sand, warm waters that are shallow enough for your kids to play in safely, or to lay in yourself and catch some rays.
3.     There’s Even a Ferry!
You can take a ferry from Fort Myers Beach to Key West. If you've made the drive and want to start your party a little early, then the Ferry is definitely something you should do. They usually have a live musician singing your favorite island music. It's a great way to start your party! There is plenty of seating, a bar stocked with bevvies, snacks and food, and even multiple TVs in the off-chance the breathtaking view is a bore!
4.     No Passport Required
You can practically throw a stone to Cuba from the island of Key West, yet it is as American as baseball and Apple Pie. No passport or birth certificate required. Just get here. Then party.
5.     It’s Cheaper During Off-Season
Come during the off-season and you are guaranteed an unforgettable vacation that won’t break the bank...too badly. Hotels, eats, entertainment, and airfare are all on the budget-minded side of the fence. Read through some of the blog entries on this site for some other great, off-the-beaten-path deals and steals.

And if you are just coming for a quick getaway, the packing is light: flip flops, bathing suit, sun glasses and sunscreen. And of course a couple cute outfits for strolling along Duval Street day and night! SEE: Top bars in Key West
