Driving from Tallahassee to Key West

Me and hubby will be driving fom Tallahassee to Key West and we were looking for advice for the trip. Like about how long does it take, where is a good midway stopping point to have lunch at a nice restaurant, and if there is anything of interest to see. I'd appreciate all the info I can get. Thanks,Cat

I posted to you on the key west forum. I do not believe you understand how long the drive takes. If you do not know where you are going (and no offense but i do not believe you do since you are asking how long this will take) it will take you over 12 hours. Florida is the forth largest state in the union behind alaska, texas, and california, it take a while to get from point A to point B.

look at my post on the key west website.

Seminole is right. If you drive straight thru it will take about 12 hours. It's about 5 hours to Melbourne which is where I live and from there to Key West another 7. I have driven both many times. I would suggest driving from Tallahasse to around West Palm or Ft. Lauderdale and spending the night. There are nice restaurants in both places and you can find a hotel not too far from the interstate. Depends on the time of day you are leaving where you will end up for lunch. Check the forum here on TA for both cities you should find some good suggestions there.
