Key West — 2 nights

Located just 140 km (90 mi) from Cuba, Key West is an island only about 6.4 km (4 mi) long and 1.6 km (1 mi) wide.
Venture out of the city with trips to SpaTerre at Little Palm Island Resort (in Little Torch Key) and Bahia Honda State Park (in Big Pine Key). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum, don't miss a visit to Truman Little White House, take in the waterfront at Mallory Square, and look for all kinds of wild species at Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory.

Plan my Key West trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Newark to Key West is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Newark in November, with highs in Key West at 81°F and lows at 73°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Thu) early enough to drive to Islamorada.

The Sunshine State
The “Sunshine State,” Florida became a favorite winter destination for the affluent crowd over a century ago. Today, the state attracts visitors from around the world with its golden beaches and modern theme parks. You can spend your entire vacation enjoying the state's highly developed seaside areas, but remember that some of Florida's best-kept secrets are in secluded locations. Visit the big cities and their comfortable resorts offering top-notch dining and nightlife, but leave some time to see the peninsula's swampy landscape, filled with wild creatures and native plants. Farther away from the tourist-packed urban areas, the untamed wetlands of Florida offer a selection of things to do, such as kayaking, boat rides, and numerous other outdoor activities.
