So many people thought we were crazy to make the drive to Key West instead of flying in, but so glad we didn't. I pt was a beautiful drive and got to see some of the flora and fauna of the islands.

When planning our honeymoon we were determined to include a drive down to Key West. I have always seen photos of the Overseas Highway but it is magnificent in person, better than we imagined.

It is a long ride to key west but the ride is beautiful. The water has a beautiful blue turquoise color and makes the ride pleasant.

Very scenic drive to Key West, includes bridges connecting the keys, views of the bays and ocean. Lodging available on the keys to break up the ride, and an alternate to staying on Key West.

What a marvel of American engineering and craftsmanship. We truly are a country of remarkable people to have built these amazing structures. It was interesting to read about the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935 that ruined Flaglers' railroad to Key West, and there is memorial to the veterans that were building it, and were lost in the hurricane.

Great views. Nice place to visit. Plenty places to eat along the way. Clean environment. We stopped along the way and walked all over the place. Water is amazingly beautiful.

The water colors are amazing, pictures don't do it justice. So much to look at, they should have a place to pull over and take pictures
