Florida Keys Money-Saving Tips

Getting There

The most affordable way to get to the Florida Keys is by flying into Miami (about 60 miles away) or Fort Lauderdale (nearly 90 miles away) and then driving or taking a shuttle.

Bug Off

Bring insect repellent, especially in the summer! The mosquitoes here love fresh blood.

Know How to Navigate

Overseas Highway is the main road that runs through the Keys, and most business that fall on this route will list the mile marker number instead of the actual address.

Rent a Car

You can get by without having a car in Key West. For nearly every other destination, attractions are spread out with many miles in between.

Wear Sunscreen

Even individuals who typically tan easily are prone to burns in the Keys, where the sun is stronger than in other parts of the U.S.

Fill ‘er Up

If you're driving to the Key West, make sure you get gas before entering the island. Gas station owners are aware that travelers are at their mercy here and gas prices reflect that knowledge
