“Highway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

It is interesting for a first 2-3 bridges. Than it gets boring because you just want to get to Key West and there is bridge after bridge, after bridge.

“Aquamarine Water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

110 miles of outstanding beauty. Sunrises and sunsets over the water. It is a treasure unlike any other. I could never tire of this beauty. My goal is to drive the whole 110 miles twice every year.

“A nice day trip from K.W.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We rented a car upon arrive for a week stay in K.W. in order to drive up the Keys for a stop as some old haunts. The trip up to Key Largo and back is 7-10 hours depending on time spent a stops along the way. For us lunch at Mrs. Macs, shopping at the Rain Barrel Artisian Village (look for the giant lobster) and a stop at Robbie's Pier (MM 77.5) to feed the tarpon are a must.

“Not What I Expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

I have been wanting todrive through the Keys for a long time. I was disappointed. Although there are spots where the water is very pretty, I expected for the Key islands to be nicer. There really is not much there. Unless you are there for water sports, there really is just not much there.
