I've tried booking flights today from DC to the Keys. The cost for the times I need for a three day weekend are making the cost prohibitive. How long of a drive is it from Miami?

If memory serves me correctly around 3 hours or less if there is no traffic For the most part it is a nice drive and you can always stop mid way on one of the keys to enjoy a nice lunch. It seems that by the time you change flights and wait around airports it takes just as much time, plus you are always at risk of a flight being delayed or something. The only draw back is you need to rent a car, I think a ground shuttle winds up costing as much as a car if there are 2 of you. We always drive.
