Got some cheap fares between DFW and Miami on AA. We paid $129 for a weekend trip to south Florida. Upon arrival on Friday, we headed to our hotel room. It was late and I was tired. I was storm chasing the previous few days, and barely made it to the airport.
Saturday morning we woke up and headed down to the Florida Keys. We drove the whole way to Key West. On our way west, we stopped off and had lunch in an outdoor bar with Gary and Lucy Blinebury. We visited the rock on Key West for the Southernmost Point in the United States. I highly suggest this drive.
We drove back up and stayed downtown at the Hilton Miami Downtown. The rooms were nice and not too horribly priced. We drove around downtown Miami on Saturday night. I had difficulty with navigation, and we finally settled on Fogo de Chao.
We woke up Sunday and explored Miami and the south Florida beaches a bit, driving up to West Palm Beach. We actually stopped and hung out on the beach for awhile on Sunday afternoon. As the afternoon got late, we had to start driving back down to catch a flight home. Miami airport isn’t too horrible to fly in and out of.
