i am planning to travel to Key West ,FL -- any suggestions please ? -- as the flights are very expensive -- flying till Miami and renting a car (travel 3 hrs) is a good idea ?
Be sure to stop at Robbie's[robbies.com] in Islamorada to feed the Tarpon (they are H-U-G-E). It only costs a few bucks and is well worth the experience. They also have some great affordable shopping and food.
If you are making the drive, just be aware of peak travel times. For example, if you drive back toward Miami on a Sunday afternoon, you can guarantee you will get stuck in traffic and lose about an extra hour. Also know that there are slow speed limits in certain areas (i.e. Deer Key) when you pass through towns or wildlife crossing areas. Simply roll down the windows, switch your mind to island time, and crank up some Jimmy Buffet.
Check the prices on flights from Canada, it's often cheaper to fly from Canada than it is from the US. I know this was the case for a friend in Seattle who drove to Vancouver to fly to India. It was also cheaper for my relatives to fly from Canada to Europe, so they did the drive to Canada from Boston to get the better deal.
Question: I noticed on lastminute.com I found hotels a ton cheaper in St. Louis than any other site, but I also noticed the site looks like is meant for people living in Europe. Now I just want to know if I could still book my hotel through this site for the way cheaper rate even factoring in the conversion rate, thanks.
