Transit to the Southernmost City

The highway known as the seven mile Bridge has a remarkable history behind it. It is the main transit access line by car into Key West.

Pretty drive! We were driving to Key West to a boat ride we had planned. You get neat views on both sides of the road, along with plenty of places to pull off the road if you want.

The Overseas Highway is the one and only way you're going to drive down to Key West. You're not going to set any speed records while driving on this road and if an accident happens, expect to be stopped for a really long time. There's no other way in or out of the Keys, but the good news is that... More

Our ferry from Ft Myers cancelled on us, so we decided to make it a road trip! This was the best thing we've ever done! We stopped and had a key lime smoothie, took photos of the amazing water views, explored a state park, spotted a key deer, and sampled restaurants on the way. I highly recommend this trip!

We were stuck on the seven mile bridge portion just 7 miles from our destination. When an accident occurs lower in the keys, it backs up traffic for miles as it's the only road at this point. But it wasn't a disappointment; the view was amazing!

We drove from Miami to Key West and it took about 8 hours with the traffic. Once you get to Key Largo the drive really starts to get pretty. We made the mistake of taking Route 1 instead of the Ronald Regan Turnpike which added considerable time to our journey. Once we got to Key Largo, the 100 mile drive... More
