Key West to Grenada - Best Route?

We are planning to travel to Grenada next winter and we are wondering what the best route would be. We will have 3-4 months and even if we don't get that far we we expect to round the Keys in late January and leave the US behind. We plan to return to the east coast by mid May (or leave the boat in Grenada for hurricane season?) Which way will the weather be helpful and not a hindrance? Is there a good reason to leave Cuba to port and make our fast time early and meander on the way back? I keep reading that the "Thorny Path" is to go south east down the islands but I don't know of another way.
