It's 155 miles from the Miami airport to Key West yet it felt shorter. We had a mile marker guide to the highway and that gave us some targets to stop at along the way. The highway is a destination in itself so if you have the time, then pick a place for lunch/dinner and visit a beach or one... More

The Highway area is much improved in that there are gas stations and restaurants in many spots. The trip doesn't seem as long as it used to since there are diversions along the way.

It a must to drive this highway on your own. Only when driving that long way you get a real impression about key west! Just stop at reataurants at the beach when hungry or visit the flipper scenery on your way

Many bridges along the route to Key West. Saw some interesting birds. On our return we plan on stopping at Robbie's to feed the tarpan.

Took us a long time to get down there, but the ride back was nice. Always allow more time than you think you need. One of the "1001 things you have to do before you die".

Let's face it….lots and lots of people want to do this drive. And, it's worth it!! So, take your time, pull off and please support all the 'mom and pop' operations along the way. The corporations that own all the big chain hotels, etc are fine, 'safe' etc but there are a lot of other fine folks trying to make... More

You have to drive this route. The colors of the water are amazing as they surround the old bridge and mangrove areas.

It's a journey I've always wanted to make. The Seven-Mile Bridge is a wonder. The Keys have different personalities, and there are restaurants with terrific views of both bay and ocean.

Fantastic pathway until Key West. The charming highway has lots of isles and cities to visit during the trip. You can stop and eat anywhere. The only drawback is the fact that there is no curves and you can fall in sleep. Be careful and do not drive tired! The speed is reduced all long the highway.
