(I am reposting this. Already posted the same question in Miami forum)
My family and I will be visiting Miami for 4 days after cruise. My parents will stay for the first night and leave. My husband and I will stay another 3 nights.
My friend told me there is not much to see in Miami, (I don't like night life and I am not big on shopping either) so I am hoping to visit Key West. I just don't know how many days I should allot for each place.
After first night with parents in Miami, should I stay 1 or 2 nights in Key West, before staying the remaining night(s) in Miami again?
Or is it better to stay in Miami, then Key West, and then go straight home, so I will worry less about changing hotels (although I will worry about rushing to the airport with a long drive)?
I don't think there is enough time for my parents to visit Key West, if we will be in Miami after 10am, and they need to get to the MIA airport around noon the next day.
I would love some suggestions from people who have been to both places.
