Very slow going two-lane highway for the most part at 45 mph. Be forewarned. You can't be in a hurry so plan to enjoy the drive and its many views.

The road to Key West is narrow (two lanes, mostly) and can be clogged with traffic during the winter months when seasonal vistors head south. But the trip is unusual, for the scenery, for water sports people, for anyone who is not hyperacive.

We thoroughly enjoyed the drive from Key Largo down to Key West, and back again. We had been looking forward to it for some time, and it did not disappoint. We had good weather and light traffic both ways, which helps. It's a great feeling to be driving over the water and keys.

From Key Largo on down this set of bridges seems endless and made up of so many different bridge concepts. Take a moment on each of the keys to stop and check them out. Get the whole story from the locals on Marathon at the stuffed pig about the rail road that was first to use the bridges. Great History.... More

Love the drive down through the Keys from southern Florida. The view is absolutely stunning and there are so many interesting places to stop along the way. I highly recommend having a towel with you. There are several locations where you can simply pull over and stick your toes in the water in the gulf on one side of the... More

As we drove from Fort Lauderdale to Marathon Island, we were a bit disappointed with some of the early parts of the overseas highway because there was not much of a view. That being said, once we got to Marathon Island and then on to Key West, we were very impressed with the beauty of the water and shoreline. We... More

About 3 hours from Miami. The drive was pleasant and relaxing. Lots of places to stop along the way. Fishing opportunities over the bridge. We went early in the day to beat the traffic.

We got stuck in two 10 mile long traffic jams. The first one we moved very slowly for over an hour to clear it. The second one we spent over a half hour stopped dead in our track - just 8 miles from Key West. We eventually gave up, turned around and went back to the nearest restaurant for dinner... More

The highway takes you past some excellent places to eat. It also provides a nice scenic view of the beautiful Keys. It is a nice but a slow drive. Enjoy.

We rented a convertible and made the drive - parts are really beautiful, parts are not scenic at all. Still, it is one of the classic drives in the US and worth doing once.
