How long a Drive from Miami International Airport or Fort Lauderdale Airport?
Allow yourself 2.5 hours from Miami International Airport (110 Miles) and 3 hours from Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (135 Miles). Note: Rush hour in Miami & Fort Lauderdale is between 6:30 AM - 9:30 AM, and 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM. During these periods add 1 hour of travel time. Pick your airport between Miami and Fort Lauderdale based on your convenience and or cost of flights. Both airports are major airports that service most parts of the country. You can fly into Marathon or into Key West but flights are limited and can be expensive. Also rental cars are less expensive on the main land and the drive down to the Keys is a beautiful drive over 30 bridges that connect the islands of the Keys.

How far is it from Cocoplum to Key West? It will take a beautiful one hour to drive (54.5 miles) to Key West. Features a Trip over the Famous 7-Mile Bridge. Go slow on the roads of Deer Key because the Key Deer is an endangered species!

What is the average climate and weather in the Florida Keys?

Wherever you are right now, chances are the weather is better here in the Florida Keys. That's true even on a summer day. The hottest it's ever been in Key West is 97° F (36° C), and that was way back in 1880. At the peak of summer, the average high is 89° F (32° C). We don't have any super-highways or urban sprawl to radiate the sun's heat. Not only that, but our islands are surrounded by cooling ocean waters.

VIEW MONTHLY AVERAGES

Wise Floridians from the mainland flock to the Keys on steamy weekends because the air is usually a few degrees cooler here. The water temperature might be in the mid-80s (30° C) but the sea is nevertheless refreshing for swimming, snorkeling or diving. In the winter, cold fronts can bring frost to mainland Florida, but you can be sure there will be no frost here. The all-time record low for Key West is 41° F (5° C) set in 1981. Divers or snorkelers usually get by with a "shortie" wet suit.

During these winter months, it almost never rains. By late May, however, the season's first thundershowers start popping up. Rarely do they stick around long enough to spoil an entire day.

You might be wondering about the Atlantic hurricane season, which can affect the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States as well as the Caribbean and the Bahamas. The official hurricane season begins June 1st and ends on November 30. Traditionally, the highest potential for storms is between Aug. 15 and Oct. 15. However, the daily weather during this period tends to be some of the most beautiful of the year.
