Hi y'all - For those that have done the Swim Around Key West:

1) Where did you stay at a reasonable price (two adults).

2) Do you need to rent a car to get around?

Thanks. Looking forward to doing this (20k version).

    We stayed at Sunrise Seaside Suites. It was affordable and a really good location. I would recommend some means of transportation while you are there. Cars, Scoot Coupes, Golf Carts all available between 90-100 bucks a day. Make sure to check out Higgs and Zach Taylor beach parks. If you want to breakfast like a local, make sure to go to Goldman's Bagel Deli.

    I just checked their website. $145.00 per night. That's pretty good for Key West.

    Thanks for all this! Do you have a link handy?

    Much much appreciated! Just to clarify, this was about 3 hour drive to the race start?

    And of course I messed it up. Sent the wrong link. Bluh. LOL. Here is the actual place, although it's a bit more ($200 per night) then when we went, and another nice little place for $165. These are actually IN Key West. LOL!

    If you want any other help, just private message or email me (MLamby1965@yahoo.com) I love helping people with travel stuff. For me, that's half the fun of doing these swims. All the best.

    We stayed at the Southernmost. https://thesouthernmostinn.com/

    Car is optional. We rented bikes for the week and primarily got around that way, with the exception of a handful of excursions. Car was helpful for packet pick up and race day.
