Personally, i think it is too far for a day trip. The ride back and forth will take 7 hours without any stops and there are many things to check out along the way.
Any chance of staying over night?
Stop and feed to tarpon at Robbie's, perhaps a picnic lunch at Anne's beach, what are some things that interest you ?
It is a good deal of driving. What's your goal in driving down?
Almost nothing I would recommend could be most enjoyed with a short stay after a 3+ hour drive with another on the back end.
It might be way more fun to stay on SOBE for the day. That's what I'd do.
IMHO not a good idea to do this as a day trip. If you want to see some of what Key West has to offer, you should try and stay for at least one night. It's a long drive both ways and one that should not be rushed as the scenery is spectacular and the speed limit is low.
Ok, thanks for the info; we might just make it to the Upper Keys..
Great! Thanks for the advice.
