Orlando CityPASS

FIRST TRIP TO KEY WEST
I had a week of vacation to take before the year ended, so I hunted around from some flight deals. I came across a $197 round-trip flight to San Fran. We checked into doing a Napa trip flying there, but all the wineries require reservations and tastings are now around $25 to $50 per person, if not more. There are some that don’t charge that much, but the headache of making a bunch of reservations turned us off, so we decided not to go.

I also came across a $450 flight to Lisbon or Vienna, but things were still too sketchy going overseas. Good thing we didn’t go to Vienna. They had a lock-down with all restaurants closed through the week when we would’ve gone.

DSC_0036

Next was a $111 roundtrip flight to Miami on Southwest. Great deal! I’ve always wanted to go to Key West, so I checked to see hotels pricing and car rental pricing and it was ok enough to book the trip. I used a gift card for Southwest from Giant Eagle to earn FuelPerks. I also used part of the $400 voucher from our Maui trip that we received for Southwest changing and messing up our flights when we went to Maui. Vouchers only last a year, so we had to get some trips on the book with them before they expired.

Covid was a concern going to Florida, but they had their huge peak in September when they led the nation in cases. At the time we left, Ohio had 5 times the number of daily cases than Florida, so the demographics changed. Plus we got out booster shot, so that put us more at ease.

At first, car rentals were expensive for “name brand” companies like Hertz and Avis, but cheap with low-cost “never-heard-of-them” car rental agencies. Their ratings were too low for them, so I didn’t book any. Then I found a deal for $287 for the week with National for an intermediate car through their Emerald Club. For those not familiar with the Emerald Club it is a rewards program with National. All you do is walk over to the “Emerald Aisle” and you get to pick any car there. I didn’t even have to go to the counter. I just had to do was show them my drivers license at the exit. When we got there I had the choice of huge pickups trucks, a Dodge Charger, and a Toyota Camry. Since we were driving many miles I stuck with the mileage-efficient, although boring, Camry. It had only 400 miles on it!

Lodging at Key West is super expensive. I booked the best deal I found with AirBNB as the hotels were pricey. Good thing I did. I kept checking for better deals and prices only went up from there. It’s partly why when people book for trips there they decide to book next years trip too, so that they can lock in lower rates.

DSCF6381

To start the trip we stayed in Key Largo so that we could visit John PennenKamp Coral Reef State Park for snorkeling at their underwater museum. Yes, underwater museum. They have statues and stuff placed underwater to view while snorkeling. The bummer was when we went on the trip, they said the current and visibility was not good, so instead, they took us further out to a reef. They said we should see sharks, but we didn’t. I did see plenty of barracuda and a sting ray. Some big barracuda too that looked like their sharp teeth were polished up using Colgate Optic White toothpaste.

I booked a hotel in Key Largo and we used our free stay we earned for making 10 qualifying reservations with Hotels.com . We stayed at a place called Gilberts Resort. It had a huge outdoor restaurant/bar right next door.

There was a jet ski rental on the property and we decided to rent one. Their jet skis had some oomph. I went as fast as I could go on it at 46 mph and I thought my eyebrows might fly off. There are some other places I saw that rent jet skis, but they are a “tour”. In other words, you follow the leader. Very boring.

For restaurant deals I found coupons on Entertainment.com and also Restaurant.com. I printed a bunch of the Entertainment coupons using my account when I bought the Cleveland book. Yes, you can print coupons (or show it via your smartphone) for other cities. I feel like I could be in the Progressive “don’t be like your parent” commercial since I am still old school and like to print my coupons.

I tried to use the Key Lime Co BOGO coupon from the Entertainment book, but it was closed. The sign one day said they would open later in the day due to staffing issues, but never did. It was the one that the guy from The Profit invested in…looks like that didn’t work out very well for him.

Happy hours are popular in Key West. There were some great ones with half off appetizers and drinks, including Moondog, Boathouse, Old Town Manor, Martins (their small plates were tiny even for small plates) and White Tarpon. Some small plates were a half slab of delicious ribs and half off! I found those at Rams Head and White Tarpon. I wouldn’t recommend the smoked fish dip. We tried it at one place. It would be more aptly named chum dip.

DSC_0063

We didn’t do some of the tourist things like the Ernest Hemingway house tour. Next time. We didn’t partly because we tried to avoid large crowds inside buildings due to Covid.

Around town and hotel lobbies there were boxes or displays with magazines and booklets with coupons in them. There were BOGO drink coupons for Lucy’s, Hard Rock and other places in them aside from other coupons.

We made a point to eat outdoors to avoid the crowds and Covid. Sloppy Joe’s, the most popular bar there, didn’t have an outdoor area and was packed inside, so we didn’t even go there. I wanted to be outdoors as it was to enjoy the weather.

DSC_0048

We went to the Southernmost point in Florida. It’s marked by a large buoy-like marker. As we were taking a picture of it a lady on her bike yells out “it’s a lie, it’s not the southermost spot!”. Well, ok. Thank you for the education tidbit. It happens to be the most southernmost continental mainland U.S. spot. Some islands off of Key West and Hawaii are the more southernmost. So she can continue to yell and know she is righteous in what she is barking at tourists.

Parking in Key West is hard to find in the old town. Street parking is mostly for residents only. We got lucky and found free parking nearby on South Street, otherwise I was prepared to pay to park in a 24 hour garage.

There were a bunch of CVS stores in Key West, but beware! A couple of the stores were independent stores and don’t do the sales ad or ExtraBucks. The one on Truman was a corporate store that did do them and we took advantage of buying souvenirs and stuff using my Extrabucks, including a $10 off $50 coupon they e-mailed to me. Walgreens is also in town, but no Rite Aid.

Supermarkets are dominated by Winn Dixie and Publix. Prices are high or at least higher than what we see in Cleveland.

DSCF6460

We ended the trip at Miami Beach. Our stay was near the beach. I did something I’ve never done with the booking. I booked a hotel using a non-refundable rate. For one, it was at the end of the trip. If the stay was at the beginning of the trip, I would hesitate booking a non-refundable rate because I have more of a chance making it there to use the hotel stay at the end of the trip than the beginning. Especially during the winter, flights can get cancelled and you can end up a day or two in an airport waiting for the next available flight.

I booked the hotel using Hotels.com when they offered a Black Friday deal with double reward stay and additional discounts. I had to cancel a previous booking with them and with the non-refundable rate it was $100 less. The property also had free parking which is tough to find in the Miami Beach area.

Before I did all that I found a great deal at a highly rated AirBNB property in Miami Beach. I double booked stays and planned to cancel one of them. Luckily I didn’t cancel the other one. I got a message from the AirBNB renter that an inspector told her she couldn’t rent the property! She said we could chance staying, but I told her yeah, no, I didn’t want to roll the dice on it. She nicely offered her place yet, if things fell through with our other stay.

DSCF6535

At a beach in Key West I saw a lady looking at something and from a distance I thought it was a blue lizard or fish. I then saw her go over to a woman with her kids and tell her something. The mom then, with her foot, marked a line in the sand and told her kids not to cross it. So of course, I had to go over and take a look. It looked like a blob. It turned out to be a Portuguese Man o’ War, a venomous jellyfish-type creature with tentacles that sting.

We came across them again on Miami Beach, only this time there were so many on the beach we decided not to go in the water. Part of the reason was because a lifeguard told us that on a scale of 1 to 10, the pain from its sting is a 10. Yeah, no. I have enough aches and pains already as it is.


Big Bus Miami

We took the free trolley from where we were staying to Miami Beach and other spots numerous times. It picks up every half hour. Very convenient since a stop was across from where we were staying.

At Mercato on a cool street named Espanola Way they had a great happy hour. Food, drink and service was awesome along with the happy hour specials. Yard House nearby also had some great deals for happy hour.

On Ocean Blvd the deals dried up from the last time we were there. They had a “special” on a huge margarita, but they were priced at 2 for $52! Yowza! Is it happy hour for the business or the customer? I’d pay that maybe for lobster, but not a drink.

DSCF6540

Where we stayed in Miami Beach was near the condos that collapsed. As I was there a runner stopped to pay his respects. Very hallowed grounds. I couldn’t imagine what those people went through.

On the flights I double-masked just like on our trip to Maui. If you haven’t taken a flight in awhile, things have changed. No meals with most airlines. No alcohol either. No need to fuel belligerent people.
