Drove from Boca to key west last april 6hours but had a couple of stops on the way one near homestead for nike store and another for lunch half way.
I have driven from Delray to 'the Keys' and it took no where near 8 hours and the traffice wasn't bad at all. I suppose it would depend on the time of year you're going, it is still considered season I believe.
* hrs - nahh! try about 5.5 when traffic is good. Take Sawgrass Tpike around Miami. Don't drive on Friday or Sunday (lots of weekend traffic) or, God forbid, a holiday weekend like Memorial Day or July 4th. Other than that it is an awsome drive with the Atlantic on your left and the Gulf of Mexico on your right, cool places to stop that are still old FL style. One of the most beoutiful drives in the U.S. imho. Go conky tonkin' to KW - you'll have a good time. Enjoy!! Scott (formerly of Lake Worth, FL, Palm Beach county)
