A very nice drive from South Florida to Key West, UNLESS , there is an accident, then it is closef and at a stand still. That being said, the color of the water going South, is SPECTACULAR!!!! The most gorgeous turquoise color anywhere. Worth the trip.

We always makes the drive from Fort Lauderdale to the Keys because the Overseas Highway is just so gorgeous and serene! There are plenty of places to stop along the way and visit (the dolphin rescue center or the turtle hospital or any countless number of places to get trinkets). Each island has something great to offer. Bahia Honda beach... More

Study up on the history of the Key's before you go so you can really appreciate what has gone on here in last 150 years with the railroads, hurricanes, roads etc. Great bicycle rideing, especially when you can stay on the original bridges built in 1943 for two way vehicle traffic (barely wide enough for two way bicycle traffic) let...

The overseas highway is a must see for anyone who enjoys a relaxed road trip. Most of the journey is a single lane from Miami all the way down to Key West.

We drive the Overses Hwy. evrytime we are in the area - at least once a day for however many days we are in the Keys. It's perfect with many bridges, many little towns and spectacular water views. The last time we drove this highway, we were lucky enough to have a red convertible- which made it even more fun!... More

This is just a great drive to do. A great bucket list item to go to mile "0"! Just don't be in a hurry! Take your time, enjoy the view, eat some great pie and conch fritters and shrimp...have a margarita once you are no longer driving...and chill!!!
