My husband and I are heading down to Florida 4/24-5/1. We are flying into Miami around 8 p.m. on Saturday (4/24), and planned on grabbing a cheap(ish) hotel somewhere in the Miami area for that night. On Sunday morning, it is our plan to get up early and drive down to Key West.
Our initial thought was that we would likely arrive in Key West in the late afternoon on Sunday (we plan on taking our time with many stops on the drive down there), and that we would stay four nights. We planned to leave on Thursday morning to drive back up to Miami, then stay somewhere in Miami until we have to fly back home on Saturday morning.
I'm being told that three full days is "too much time to spend in Key West." So now I'm not so sure? Maybe we should be leaving Key West on Wednesday so that we have two full days in KW and two full days in Miami?
More info about us: We are late-20s, we are typically "go-go-go" people on vacation. We like to get out and see, explore, do. In Key West, we were thinking we'd want to do one of the snorkeling trips, and also possibly one of the kayak tours. We are not party people, and given that I'll be ~20 weeks pregnant during our trip, that will be even more true than usual. I do want to have a little bit more of a relaxed trip than is typical for us, just because it's our "babymoon" and I'm sure my energy level won't be quite what it usually is.
So for those who are familiar with both KW and Miami--how would you split the time, given what I've told you? Also, if anyone has any other suggestions for things to do in Key West, I would appreciate it. Maybe if we can get our "must-do" list together, it'll help us figure out how much time we should really allow ourselves.
