“Long Trip from Pompano Beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

A lot of 45 mph and less on 2 lanes. There are some 55 mph though. Slower in a couple of cities. Beautiful scenery. You have to take the drive but allow time. We got behind a couple of cars that were driving 5 to 10mph under the limit and no passing because of traffic. Lots of places to eat including Islamorada Fish Company (great).

“ok driving”

Drove from Fort Lauderdale, 4hr drive.
Very little passing, lots of traffic both ways.
Stayed at speed limit, enjoy the ride, arrive alive.

“What an amazing drive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

Everyone should travel this highway at least once. There's a lot of see and good places along the way - Lazy Days restaurants in Islamorada and Marathon and Rubalou's at Mile Marker 10. Both are worth a meal!

“Breathtaking Ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

If you like driving, this ride is probably one of the most beautiful you will ever take. My husband and I hate flying (mostly because of the TSA) and drive from Philly to Key West at least once a year (sometimes more finances and work permitting). We enjoy the ride from Key Largo to Key West the most. it is so relaxing and really gets you into that island mood.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

It was scenic and the water was so clear! The only bad would be it took a long time to get to the destinations.
