A getaway to boutique hotels Miami and a stay with us at Hotel St Augustine can be a fantastic escape to recharge and relax. The busy city of Miami bustles around you, the beautiful Art Deco District is right outside your window, and the ocean waves roll to shore nearby your Hotel St Augustine accommodations. However, do not feel like the city limits of Miami are as far as you can go during your Florida getaway. Take a day trip to Key West to explore yet another fascinating piece of Florida and discover even more of the area’s cultures.
Driving Through The Keys
For a drive that takes you through a walk of different cultural areas, beautiful island paradises, and along the crystal waters surrounding the southern tip of Florida, a day trip to Key West is one you will never forget. To get from Miami to the last Key is roughly four hours of driving along 150 miles of highway. As you drive along, you will cross sparkling bodies of water and pass through each Key with something different to see with each time you pass over another bridge. The first Key is Key Largo, and most of what you will want to see is off the highway. Take a short detour off the main drag and head for the water to snorkel or take a glass bottom boat over the only living coral reef in North America. Continue on your adventure all the way to Florida’s southernmost tip and take in the sites along the way.
The Florida Keys are connected by highway bridges that seem to almost string each island together like a necklace. The Seven Mile Bridge is a uniquely spectacular route that takes you past ruins of an old train track route as incredible ocean views open up on all sides. Follow along each mile marker until you reach Key West. Upon reaching the vibrant island city, it will be easy to see why so many have Key West at the tops of their bucket lists. Tropical plants, a mix of cultures, incredible dining, and a lively atmosphere are prominent the minute you enter the Key. Visit one of the many local staples like Sloppy Joe’s Bar, Mallory Square, and explore Duval Street.
