Default Miami Flights Booked!!

Now I am looking for info on Key West races?
Where to stay? in KW or Marathon and drive in?
Is parking a huge issue?

Stay in Key west
lots of hotels and houses for rent
rent a scooter to get around
Parking for car is not a problem, closer it gets to the races the harder it is to get a slip

We just booked for our 1st trip down to the races as well. Doing the Ft. Lauderdale boat show, then a few days at a place about 20 miles from KW, and then wrap up the week in KW for a couple days of races......

Fly in to Key West. That drive from Miami will kill you. 30-35 mph most of the way from Miami to KW, with an occasional burst of speed up to 40. It really sucks. Took us 6-7 hrs, the first (and last) time we drove down

​​​​​​​I couldn't agree more. Drove it twice and it sucked both times.

I'm sensing a trend here...I think we might reconsider. Appreciate the input.

Bring $$$ KW is way overpriced every time of the year and gouges sharply for events like this.
