The journey to Key West
In 2017, I completed one of my top bucket list items with a trip to Key West. As we embarked on our trip to Key West, we took a Lyft Luxury to Braintree Ma Airport shuttle on the way to Logan International. We were running late and a bit rushed heading to the airport. We checked in and then we had to be processed through Airport security. The One ticket with precheck did not help the situation. Pre-check allows passengers to bypass Homeland security. Luckily we made it to our gate as the plane was boarding. Low and behold, I had a problem, my belt was left at the security checkpoint. I did my best OJ impersonation and sprinted to get my belt. I made it back as our JetBlue plane was last call boarding.
A couple of hours later, we landed at Miami international Airport. We got our bags and headed to get our rental car. We rented a car from Hertz and it took an ungodly amount of time to get the rental. Recommendation, If you can afford it, I would recommend getting a Ford Mustang Convertible. During the wait, I picked a place on South beach to have brunch. Shortly we were off to South Beach.
We arrived at the Front Porch Cafe on Ocean Blvd. The food, service, and atmosphere were excellent. I would rate experience 5 stars and highly recommend it. It was a great way to start the day.
After brunch, we explored Ocean Blvd and headed to the beach. For years I have wanted to see South beach, we were finally here and it was awesome! The palm trees, architecture, culture were all wonderful to see.
After spending an hour at the beautiful beach, we sat and took it all in. The ocean water was so increadabily warm and the sand was baking hot. After our stroll on the beach, we picked up some Cuban cigars and head to Key West.
