Getting Here By Air: Miami is served by two airports, Miami International (MIA) and Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International (FLL). Miami International is one of the largest airports in the world and an important hub for traffic between North America and Latin America. American Airlines is MIA’s major carrier. Fort Lauderdale International is further from Miami and is a much smaller and less trafficked airport. FLL is host to Southwest Airlines, Jet Blue and other low-cost carriers that often offer better domestic fares than MIA. Check flights to both airports before booking your flight while also considering ground transportation. Fort Lauderdale is 25-40 minutes north of Miami by car and a taxi can run you up to $65.

By Rail: Amtrak serves Miami frequently from Central Florida and Northeastern US with several daily trains. Check or 800-USA-RAIL for schedule and fares.

By Car:


Three main highways lead to Miami. I-95 extends south along the Atlantic coast of Florida and terminates in Miami. U.S. Highway 1 provides access from the Florida Keys to the south of Miami and I-75 cuts in from the west and Florida’s Gulf coast. 6

olorful Key West is one of America's true architectural and botanical treasures. On even the tiniest lanes, the locals have faithfully restored old wooden homes and adorned them with lush tropical trees and flowers. New restaurants and stores are popping up in the historic Bahama Village neighborhood, which was settled in the 19th Century by Bahamian immigrants. Hemingway loved coming here to mix with the hard-working locals at boxing matches and arm-wrestling contests. The islands seafaring tradition lives on at the renovated Historic Seaport district, known locally as the Key West Bight. Dozens of shrimp boats once called this harbor home. These days, "the Bight" is a popular place to arrange a day on the water, whether you are a diver, snorkler, fisherman or eco-tourist. Others come just to stroll along the harbor walk or dine at one of the many restaurants.
