Nov. 13-16,2013? What's happening?

I have been trying to book a room in the area to visit the Everglades on these dates,what is going on? Most are already booked (!?!)....I see some that are still ok, but does anyone know if there is some event happening to cause this?

Surely, by now, you have figured out it's the last NASCAR race of the season at the Miami Homestead Speedway...

You will find that many rooms are booked from Miami to Key Largo. You should be able to find beachside rooms as most race fans prefer to stay closer to the track. A little closer you might try Holiday Inn & Suites in Kendall. Decent hotel in safe area with a free breakfast. Be careful of any hotels in the Cutler Ridge area. Some are pretty disgusting. If you want only Florida City you should book soon.

Oh yes, Thanks for all the info- Someone posted earlier there is a big race that weekend.... I found a pace I want to stay, any idea on if this will affect traffic in the area to a big extent? I'm interested in Everglades,not the city areas really...

Yes, it is the final race of the Nascar season where they do the awards for best driver of the year. It will affect the traffic somewhat. Florida City is a very small place (I call it a gas and go town). Its really only a few motels and some chain restaurants and a couple gas stations on a strip of road leading into the keys. It is at the end of a backroad out of the racetrack and many race fans book there. Miami is a very large city and traffic is heavy most of the time anyway. The day of the main race will be the worst.
