A bit over 100 miles of driving, but views that burn in your mind forever. The drive down or back up is spectacular. Beautiful water of all colors, islands by the thousands and the view is with any effort it takes to drive this road.

The views as you drive along are magnificent. We really enjoyed the walk along the 7 mile bridge. Lots of places to stop and get out of the car.

What better time then now to visit the Florida Keys? My family and I traveled from Fort Lauderdale to Key West last week. It was a fantastic and picturesque trip! We arrived in Key Largo very late at night so decided to stay for 2 nights. We were able to visit a couple of hot spots then we moved on... More

We are staying in key west and have driven up & down this highway for days now doing activities. It's such a beautiful ride. Some traffic at certain times like 4pm.

I love making this drive every time we visit Key West. Some people dread it but the views are great and this helps me get in the correct "Keys Attitude" before getting to our destination. I am old enough to remember the old narrow bridges and the current ones are so much better.

Such a interesting history and beautiful to see. Sadly closed when I came by, but the view from the current highway is still awe inspiring.

There was a time when shrimpers and fishermen would kill each other to keep 'their spot'. Today, only remnants remain of the original, but access to parts of the no-motors-any-longer highway provide for day fishing and endurance walking.

I took the Key West Express from Ft. Myers to Key West and then took a tour up the keys from Key West to Marathon and back and I have decided the only way for me to get to Key West anymore is to drive from Miami down. The overseas highway is absolutely gorgeous. Be warned though...it's a two-lane road... More
