This drive is one of the finest in the nation. Especially on a clear day when you can see all the hues of the ocean. You will see many colors and reefs along the way along with some neat bridges old and new. There are many places to stop so make your trip a fun one and explore the Keys.

Over the years I have made many trips from Homestead to Key West. I have driven, and been on bus rides on the Overseas Highway, US Rt#1, from Homestead to Key West and I am convinced it is the most beautiful drive I have ever been on. The water colors and coral formations changes from bridge to bridge. The colors... More

The Overseas Highway is a fantastic stretch of road that is also on most Top-10 driver and motorcycle bucket lists. Dotted with more than 40 bridges, the famous Seven Mile Bridge is something you'll never forget. Gorgeous shades of blue, turquoise, sea foam green, and more will have you doubting that you're really seeing all of those beautiful colors. There... More

The US1 takes you all the way to Key West, and over the famous 7 mile bridge. As other reviews have said, it isn't like there's another choice to use driving down the Keys. Stop just after Marathon to walk the old bridge to Pigeon Key, although we only did a little walk here as it was far too hot,... More

Always fly into Miami or Ft Lauderdale and drive the Highway LIKE NON-OTHER!! IN and out of each Key as you meander to the Key at the Southerner Most POINT!! Antisipation

This was my first time driving to the Keys. I didn't know what to expect. The road was good, the traffic wasn't bad, I just would have liked more water views. I thought the water would be closer to the road and more visible.

The only way to arrive at key west. Fantastic scenery and a lovely drive. We arrived in a huge thunderstorm and that was an experience in itself.
