Beautiful Drive

It is definitely a beautiful drive, but allow a lot of extra time. The traffic was extremely slow and the one lane no passing can be overwhelming.

I think this is the world most scenic highway, even tough not the most iconic (PCH between carmel and big sure rules) i think this highway with the history it has is a must to see, drive and enjoy (bahia honda state park)

This was the second time my wife and I drove to Key West on the Overseas Highway and if we come back to Key West I think we will fly in or take the ferry. Yes it is a scenic drive but there is other ways to get to Key West. Going there is not the problem because you don't... More

How many times have I traveled to Key West via car? Too many to count. I have taken The Overseas Highway during the early morning, during the afternoon, the evening and during the night. All different adventures in themselves, all unique and all just as wonderful. Watch the speed limit folks and take care for our Key Deer. Nothing like... More

If you are going all the way to Key West prepare for a long drive, if traffic is heavy it will only get longer. Obey all speed limits Radar is heavily used and saw a lot of cars getting stopped and tickets issued. On the good side the scenery is gorgeous and the road is in good repair. Be very... More

Drove from Miami to Key West crossing the 41 bridges, stopping in Key Largo and Marathon. No traffic, wide roads, 4 lanes. not many stop lights, speed ranged from 40 to 55 miles per hour all the way. 150 miles from miami to key west can be driven in 3 1/2 hours.

Imagine driving primarily over bridges surrounded by water for over 2 hours...that's how long it takes to get from Key Largo to Key West (not factoring traffic), but with views like this, you don't want to hurry anyway. Plenty of stops for food, drinks, and shopping in every key you pass through. 2-lane road 99% of the trip with very... More

One of the more beautiful drives in the USA. Once you are past Key Largo the views start to open up and you see the water which is gorgeous. If you are in South Florida take the drive to Key West. You won't be disappointed.

Excellent view, very cool to drive over! We rented a convertible and drove from Ft. Lauderdale to Key West for a wedding and had a great time. The Overseas Highway is a really impressive project! Cool to say that we've been there! Plus, there are lots of great places to stop for food, or to sight-see on the way (like... More
