Chicago to Miami is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and subway. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Chicago to Miami due to the time zone difference. Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Chicago in January; daily highs in Miami reach °F and lows reach °F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Fri) early enough to go by car to Marathon.
