“Places to stop on the way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

if you are traveling to Key West, and want a "beach experience" stop at the Bahia Honda State Park and explore their tiny beaches. It is usually very clear and you can snorkle and enjoy the water. There are no waves in the Keys, so don't expect that.

“Beautiful Piece of Americana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

The Overseas Highway was absolutely breathtaking and made every trip up and down the different Keys a unique experience. I've never seen a chain of islands like this. Definitely one of the most beautiful places to visit in this grand country that we call home.
