[apologize if this gets posted twice...I just registered and didn't see my post come up anywhere]
My husband and I are vacationing in Key West next month, flying into Ft. Lauderdale and renting a car for the drive down. Before our flight back home, leaving Ft. L at 6:45 on a Thursday evening, I was hoping to take a few hours to briefly see the city. I love the idea of a quick lunch and water tour past the mansions...any recommendations? It will be mid-afternoon. Should we actually try to find a tour or just do a water bus ride? We'll need to return to our rental car before heading to the airport, so getting back to the same point is important.
And what might we expect in terms of traffic and airport delays late afternoon on a Thursday?
Also, on the first day of our vaca, we'd like to swing by the beaches on our way toward the Keys. What's a good route to take from the airport?
Thanks for any advice. Please email me - firstname.lastname@example.org.
