I/m not a lover of heights or bridges so there were parts of the highway that were a bit white knuckled for me. The Overseas highway however definitely has some nice vistas and while I would not want to make the leisurely drive on a regular basis, it is a must do at least once.

After visiting 118 countries around the world,my spouse and I finally added this to our local bucket list. We were expecting scenic views. We were met with boring cities and uninteresting ocean views--when available. Too much urban sprawl. Glimpses of the water were far and few. We stopped for nothing other than to use a public toilet, which were not... More

Some disappointing. Too built up. Maybe my expectations were wrong but there were too many condos and stores and not enough nature! I did it once so it's off my bucket list but next time ill fly directly to key west and get a cab to hotel!

Driving along the "Overseas Highway" is a lifetime experience! One of the most beautiful and magical highways of the whole world! We drove all the way from Miami to Key West and enjoyed every minute. A sunny day and awesome views. Take your time, bring your camera and enjoy the road. Nice pictures and fond memories to take home! Enjoy!

The overseas highway is such a beautiful drive! While it's fun to fly into Key West, it's so worth driving the Overseas Highway at least once. You'll get to visit the various Keys on the trip down and back. See the gorgeous Caribbean blue, the mangroves, the old railroad tracks.

Drove down to Key West with another couple after flying into Ft Lauderdale Airport.We drove on a Saturday afternoon and it took about 4 1/2 hours that included about a 45 minute lunch halfway.Yes,there are a few slow spots and it is single lane most of the way, and it is not an overwhelming type of beauty that you see,BUT,there...

My husband is a fan of Bridge and we usually find ourselves walking over one or driving over one all the time in destinations. He was excited about how much of this was going to be over water, but it was more over mangrove... and overgrown mangrove a lot of the time so not much to see

Beautiful...Loved seeing the ocean on one side the gulf on the other. & 7 mile bridge is cool. Lots of cutesy little restaurants and stores and even a version of bass pro only the deep sea version.

What a lovely drive down during the day time! Personally, the wife and I loved the beautiful scenery. On the drive down, you have plenty of places to stop and pullover to take some awesome pics!! Take your time driving down and you may spot some very cool wildlife including Key West deer, dolphins jumping out of the water and... More

Great sights but the drive is long if you have flown in to Fort Lauderdale or Miami. Everyone told us you have to do it once; so we had to do it twice; done!
