A Note From Us:

Below you will find information on Flights, Hotels, Home Rentals, Shuttle Services, & Bike, Golf Cart & Scooter Rentals as well as information on the Free Duval Bus Loop. Each has it's own website to view which option would be the best for your stay! Don't forget to scroll through everything, I know it's a lot but we tried to make this as smooth as possible, & you can always reach out to us with questions! Also, if you are looking for something a little cheaper, checkout Stock Island, it's a short Uber ride away.


*We'd suggest booking your rentals in advance, even your car & bikes, that way you can have a stress free trip!

Flights:

We suggest booking your flights as soon as you hopefully make the decision to attend! Flights to Ft. Lauderdale or Miami are going to be cheaper than if you fly directly into Key West. You can either rent a car or a shuttle that will take you about three hours to drive. Or, if you prefer, you can fly directly into the Key West Airport. The airport is small so there aren't usually any nonstop flights.


Key West does not have typical airlines like Southwest. The airlines consist of American, Delta, JetBlue & Silver so keep that in mind! You can always get your first connecting flight from Southwest & switch to the other options to get into Key West.

________________________________________________________

**Flights into Key West are expensive this time of year so you may want to drive from Miami/Ft. Lauderdale or rent a shuttle with others attending!


If you are flying from Baltimore: You will have a connecting flight in either Charlotte or Atlanta unless you fly into Ft. Lauderdale or Miami & drive.


If you are flying from Philadelphia or Washington DC: There are direct flights to Key West, you will not have a layover.


If you are flying from Somewhere Else: You most likely will have a connecting flight unless you are already in Florida!

Bike Rentals:

Bikes are key to have in Key West, yes, I realize that was a pun but anyway, the island is only four miles long. It's easy to walk to everything but even easier to bike, especially when it's hot out. Key West does have Uber but we've found bikes are the easiest method of transportation.
