GREAT EXPERIENCE!

This view was soooo beautiful! We took lots of pictures as we were in AWE while crossing this bridge on our way to Key West, FL. Simply Beautiful sight.

Travelling over the 42 bridges and all their adjoining Keys is a lovely trip...but make sure that you do this before sunset--you cannot see a thing after 6.00pm! My favourites are Duck Key and Islamorada, although I think Key Largo might deserve closer inspection. The history of the road and the preceding railway are worth investigating too!

The drive is so relaxing and Beautiful. We drove from Miami, it is about 4 hours. The best to do it is stop and have lunch. There are tons of places with good food and nice views of the ocean.

The drive is an experience everyone should have. The trip is long, but worth the constant beautiful views of blue water and sky that are endless.

Miami to Key West, sit back and take it all in. This is an excellent time to start decompressing. It is crucial you stop often along the way!

Beautiful drive from Miami to Key West and lots of restaurants/bars & shopping along the way. Beware if there's an accident because you'll be stuck (1 lane each way in most places).

We flew into Tampa and rented a convertible for a Florida Coast drive vacation that take us to Key West. The Overseas Highway through the keys is clearly one of the most memorable drives you will ever take.

Took the overseas highway from Everglades to Key West. Nice drive over the water and across the various keys. Traffic was moderate. Only road access to Key West from mainland. Make sure to stop at Bahia Honda State Park. View of original rail and roadway bridge built in early 1900's and used until 1972.
