We drove this highway while towing an auto and it was an advantage to be able to see down the road past other vehicles and it reduced the temptation for drivers to try to pass us. Going from Key to Key is a great experience and we stopped along the way to let the traffic go by. This highway can... More

This two lane road leads to the southern most point in the United States. Regretfully it leads to a place, Key West, where they ought to ban cars. The drive down is ocean view after ocean view while passing through small island keys. You might find an opportunity to park safely off road, but you'll move along soon enough. I... More

At least once every traveler should have the opportunity to drive the overseas highway. Fortunately, I have had the opportunity to travel around the tropics and admired all of its beauty. On each trip it was said that "this is so beautiful, I'd love to live here." But for better or worse it wasn't home, the USA. Well the Overseas... More

I didn't realize there were so many islands or keys, I expected more long bridges but there are many short ones as well.

Its beautiful driving from key-to-key over the gorgeous green/blue sea, especially the 7 mile bridge. But be very careful driving.. there are lots of entrances and exits that come up fast and unfortunately some bad drivers out there.. use your turn signals folks and don't follow too closely... Monroe county is said to have the highest number of MVA fatalities... More

Beautiful views. Slow highway as only one lane and lots of cars so give yourself extra time and enjoy the ride. Lots of places to stop and eat or purchase souvenirs.

is definitely a one and done thing. If you are going to Key West, the other options are ferry boat and airplane. If I ever go back it will be one of those. It is relatively safe I guess, but lots and lots of fast moving heavy trucks. So focus on your driving or you will be dead.

Beautiful vistas- after a red eye from LA we attempted to share driving responsibilities to Key West. After pulling over to the only Starbucks after 40 minutes of no Starbucks -my husband decided to sleep in the parking lot. That left me to proceed to key West while he snored away!!!!! My girls and I enjoyed driving the Overseas Highway.... More

I don't care where you're from, you'll find this a scenic drive. Yeah, you might hit traffic, so try and avoid if you're in a hurry. My friends and I started in Miami and stopped along the way sampling Key Lime pies. Wow, was that fun and fattening. It's amazing how good the pies are and how different they are... More
