I did not really get the feeling of driving constantly on a bridge, like I thought I would. I guess one would actually have to fly above the road to get a proper impression of how close the water is to the road at all times. But the scenery is absolutely beautiful.

In spite of the weather not being ideal, my wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed the drive. It is really nice to take this road to the southern-most part of the US.

Every American should take this drive at least once in their lifetime. The beauty of this country never ceases to amaze me. My husband and I ended up taking 12 hours to make a 4.5 hour drive to Key West. Simply beautiful!

So very scenic this drive is the perfect way to get you in a Key West state of mind. Don't rush this drive. Take your time and pay close attention. You just might get lucky and se one of the little Key deer. In any event take time to stop in at the Key deer museum.

We drove the Overseas down to Key West and back. Loved the quirky motels, roadside finds such as the world's largest lobster and state parks to enjoy an sea side experience. It can be slow at times, but that's what 2 lane road trips are all about.

Beautiful views and a fun drive, only a 2 lane road in places so be sure to give yourself plenty of time. A must see for all who are interested in going to the Florida Keys
