“Nice Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Nice drive that must be done at least once! Keep in mind traffic is bad Friday/Sunday so pick off-hours if you can. A very cool experience to complete. :)

“Very nice drive.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

The areas that are over water are very pretty. There are places to pull off and fish if you want and other attractions to stop at. The lower keys are more scenic than the upper keys.

“Nice drive down, take your time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Speed limits 55/45/35mph so budget for time accordingly. Many nice places to stop and see the nature of the area (national parks). Take care when turning on and off the roads.

“Nice drive by car,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Even better on bike. Be sure to allow time to stop where ever catches your fancy. About 100 miles to get to Key West and worth the effort.
