Key West Money-Saving Tips

Change of Scenery

If you're driving from Miami, take Card Sound Road (toll) from Florida City to Key Largo one way and U.S. 1 the other for different views of the area's mangrove-cloaked islands. 

Bike It

Rent bicycles or scooters to sidestep the hassles of congested streets and limited parking. If you did bring a car, park it at the municipal lot (fee applies) at Caroline and Grinnell Streets.

Wear Sunscreen

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

Relax Your Wardrobe

In Key West, it’s all about inner beauty, Hawaiian shirts, and flip-flops.

Fill ‘er Up

If you're driving to 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.

Think Small

Many sailing trips cram in as many passengers as possible. Go for charters with less than 30 people even if it means paying a little more, so you can actually savor the views you came to see.

Bug Off

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