Little Palm Island

I imagine the most economical way to get to the ferry departure point (somewhere around mile marker 28 if I heard right), is simply to rent a car for the day? Have to think a cab ride that far out would cost an arm and a leg, and I know of no other transportation options to get to LPI directly from Key West...is this correct?

There is a public bus that passes LPI and goes to Key West. Probably costs 1.50 or less.

I would rent a car. I am not sure the bus runs very late and dinner there can take hours and its well worth it.

City Bus to LPI? Eeeww.

Rent a car or hire a limo. Taxis will be $2 a mile each way (too much).

Paying a taxi $2.00 per mile will be the cheapest part of the trip to Little Palm Island.

Have fun there.

That's what I thought!

Yeah, buffetguy, I'm aware that our entire home equity line will be gone after this dinner. :-) Oh well. Only live once...

Its really worth it. You won't regret it. Ask (beg) for a table on the beach. They are usually reserved for people staying on the island but sometimes they are available to everyone else.

Put in a request for this way back in May, Arnie - if that doesn't do it, I guess we're out of luck and I'll have to sweet talk someone into it (with green bills).

call a few times to confirm and continue to ask for a table on the beach. Come up with a good story like you are on vacation to renew vows or something. Be nice and who knows. I have never heard of anyone throwing them a tip though.
