This is a nice scenic drive to Key West, or any of the many places enroute to visit. There are plenty of places to see the boats on the water and the boats docked in the harbor. Restaurants are not in short supply either. There are many place to choose from a variety of food along the highway. We ate... More

Fun drive from Key Largo to Key West. Amazing scenery, beautiful beaches and water, and just a fun drive. Sometimes you feel like there is nothing else around because the stretches of some parts are so long. But the views make it worth while. I love driving this highway. This and the Sea to Sky highway in BC are my... More

If you fly into Key West and are thinking of renting a car just to drive across the Overseas Highway, don't. It's not that interesting. It's a highway that goes through several towns and over water. The aerial views are much more interesting than actually driving on it. I'm glad it exists so I can drive from Orlando to Key... More

As soon as I drive over the 7-mile bridge I am relaxed and ready for a Key Vacation! The blue water surrounding the bridge, the boats, small islands, and sometimes the Dolphins jumping is the most serene experience. We have also been fortunate not to be on the bridge when there's an accident but if you are be prepared not... More

Slow going over much of this road, it takes near four hours to travel to key west. It is a bit grueling at time

We could have taken the ferry. We could have flown. I love to experience the topography of our vacation area, and also try out Trip Advisor recommended hotels along the way. The Overseas Highway is long but we timed it right...drove in on a Sunday, stayed overnight in Isle Morada, drove to Key West on a Monday. Tons of restaurants,... More

While I always appreciated the beautiful views from the Overseas Highway, I never took the time to pay much attention to the details until this most recent trip. I was riding and used a website that listed hundreds of places of interest by mile marker. There were many kayak launch spots that I never realized existed and this site noted... More

We were planning on staying in Miami for our vacation but kept hearing rave reviews of the 90 mile road trip on this highway. The pictures looked to die for so we decided to give it a go. I'm so glad we did, the pictures just don't do a Justice, it's so gorgeous. Crystal blue water on all sides of... More
