If your going to Key West you have no other option. Put on the cruise control and enjoy the view. The best part is when you see the old bridges to your left and right. You just know this is a memory your family will never forget.

When planning our Key West trip we decided that we had to rent a car and drive US Route 1 The Overseas Highway. We flew in and out of Miami so we did the ride twice in a week. On our way down we took our time and tried to stop at as many places as we could. We detoured... More

The one lane in each direction can be slow at times but the views especially over the seven mile bridge are fantastic. Plenty of shops ,restaurants and bars along the way.

After seeing the Overseas Highway in countless movies, commercials and other media, I finally made the drive to Key West. The entire drive was enjoyable, plenty of places to eat, get gas, and multitudes of attractions to stop and visit. The scenery was incredible, some of the restaurants were quite memorable, and gas prices were very competitive to the "mainland".... More

The scenery is spectacular. You are surrounded by nature and beautiful water the moment you arrive at Key Largo, all the way to Key West. Just don't get in a hurry. Enjoy the ride. I saw so many tourists weaving back and forth between lanes, passing slower cars, tailgating and speeding etc. They were missing out on the beautiful scenery... More

The drive is spectacular. Beautiful ocean colors, bridges and Keys. Lots of little places to stop and eat, photograph and shop. Be careful of any local animals crossing the road.

US 1 - the only way to/from the Keys. I thought there would have been lots more long bridges but there's only one. They take advantage of every little key though, in some places not much wider than the road. Traffic flows smoothly. Only about 7 traffic lights between mainland and Key West. Plenty of places to stop to eat,... More
