Traffic & Travel Tips

Heavy South Florida vehicle traffic often causes delays. Please allow plenty of time for driving to and from the park, especially on weekends, holidays and during morning and afternoon rush hours. Traveling on US Highway 1 can be a long, slow and arduous journey. Florida's Turnpike is the best route to avoid delays. Follow directions to the park and take note of approximate travel times from various nearby locations:

  • Downtown Miami — 60-90 minutes
  • Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood — 75-105 minutes
  • Homestead — 20 minutes
  • Key Largo — 40 minutes
