...and then never do it again. The views are amazing however, it took 4.5 hours to get from KW to Florida City. Ridiculous. No accidents or anything. Just some idiots trying to find a shortcut in Islamorada and ended backing up traffic for hours. Don't leave on a Sunday morning.

Yes it's on a beautiful part of the drive to key west. Just nice to look at. I wouldn't stop and walk down in but I did see a few people doing that.

Since it is the only road to Key West it is slow going with many cars, trucks, and people looking-taking selfees as they drive instead of pulling over and getting the hell out of the way. They should get ticketed for that crap.

Driving on this beaut made me wonder about the story of how it was built, so i goggled it. The bridge you see broken, old and rusty along the side is no bridge it was actually rail road tracks. Did you know that? But it broke while being built. Exciting right. Read about it. Loved the view of the water.

Nothing to do other than get out and walk, take photographs and soak up the sub. Worth the stop though as it is part of historical FL Keys

You'll see the highway, as it is the only way to go to key west. It is beautiful with water all around for most of the trip. You get a glimpse of some of the keys on the way.

After a lifetime of hearing about how wonderful the drive through the Keys was, I was sorely disappointed when we did it. It is a long tedious drive with much more time spent driving an old two lane highway lined with stores, hotels, etc. than seeing the beautiful ocean. You reach areas bridging between the islands where it is beautiful... More
