Take a day trip from Miami to Key West, the southernmost city in the United States, without renting a car or having to drive. On the roughly 4-hour drive, pass over 42 bridges and 34 islands as you travel the Overseas Highway. In Key West, enjoy six hours of free time. Explore the laid-back town on your own or book an optional tour and get out on the water. 

What to Expect

Your full day outing starts with early morning pickup from your downtown Miami, Sunny Isles, Bal Harbour, or Miami Beach hotel. If staying outside those areas, arrange to meet the bus at the Holiday Inn Downtown.

Head east toward the Overseas Highway, the engineering marvel that spans the Florida Keys. Originally built as a train route, the highway was rebuilt in the 1980s. You may recognize Seven Mile Bridge, the most famous bridge along the route, from movies such as True Lies, 2 Fast 2 Furious, and Mission Impossible III.

In Key West, explore the pedestrian-friendly town on your own. Visit the Ernest Hemingway House, hop on the Conch Train Tour, shop the art galleries along Duval Street, or grab a cold beverage and enjoy the laid-back island lifestyle.

Those who chose to add on activities such as snorkeling, parasailing, or a glass-bottom boat tour make their way to their selected activity.

When your time in Key West is up, board the bus for the return trip home, arriving back in Miami around 11pm.

Definately worthwhile!

I was contemplating whether or not to make the trip in a day from Miaimi. Certainly wish I had extra time or went overnight. The trip down on the bus was great. The driver was extremely helpful when we arrived.

Nice for 1 day

The overall experience is nice, and the view amazing, but there is very little to do in Key West, and not much to see during snorkeling.
