ShermansTravel experts map out your travel route to get you to your vacation spot as quickly and easily as possible. We painstakingly research the airports and airlines servicing your destination – as well as any train, bus, or ferry options – so getting there is as simple as a jaunt across town.
Getting to Florida
AirportsFlorida's main airports are in Miami (MIA) and Orlando (MCO), but all major domestic carriers and some international flights also operate out of regional hubs like Tampa (TPA) and Fort Lauderdale (FLL). Some major U.S. carriers also offer connecting service to Key West (EYW).
AirlinesAll major U.S. carriers – including United, Continental, American, Delta, and US Airways – and most international airlines serve MCO and MIA. Low-cost carriers JetBlue, Spirit, Sun Country Airlines, and Midwest Airlines serve MCO. WestJet serves MCO and MIA.
Flight TimesFlights to Miami take about 2.5 hours from New York, about 5 hours from Los Angeles, and 6.5 hours from Seattle. Shave off 30 minutes if traveling to Central Florida.
Ground TransportationAmtrak services nearly 30 cities statewide, including Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, and Miami. Greyhound buses stop in more than 50 Florida locations from the Panhandle to Key West; their North American Discovery Pass is good for unlimited travel in 7- to 60-day increments for prices that start at about $245.
