It was well worth the drive from Ft Lauderdale airport to key west. The scenery is gorgeous and good drive. It's a 2 lane most of the way, not fast but worth it!

The Overseas Highway is 100 miles of bridges connecting the islands all the way to Kew West. Maybe someday they will go all the way to Dry Tortugas, but I really don't know who would want to drive past all the beautiful islands to get to the one ugly one. Do not expect to get anywhere fast so stop along... More

We rented a car and drove from Ft. Lauderdale to Key West. The drive through the keys was enjoyable and we stopped at a cute diner for lunch. But what I didn't expect was the high concrete barriers blocking the view when you were driving over the water. Also, the traffic is very slow and very few opportunities to pass.... More

Do not be in a hurry! Follow the speed limits and just enjoy. Plenty of stations to gas up. Scenic stops, shopping, dining along the way.

...and then never do it again. The views are amazing however, it took 4.5 hours to get from KW to Florida City. Ridiculous. No accidents or anything. Just some idiots trying to find a shortcut in Islamorada and ended backing up traffic for hours. Don't leave on a Sunday morning.

Since it is the only road to Key West it is slow going with many cars, trucks, and people looking-taking selfees as they drive instead of pulling over and getting the hell out of the way. They should get ticketed for that crap.
