I rate this as one of the classic drives, much like the mostly fragmented but fabled Route 66. The highway follows Flagler's original East Coast Railway that linked the Florida Keys and the old bridges mostly run parallel to the new highway. They are fishing piers and bike trails now, and not completely connected sections. Some folks will remember the... More

What more can tally be said? Seeing the old bridge slowly being reclaimed by the elements is amazing. Trees sprouting from the pavement and the rails rusting and bowing to gravity.

Took a day out from my holiday in Miami to drive down to Key West and the 'southernmost point' of the USA. Didn't really have much time to do anything other than grab a bite to eat then drive back to Miami. It was definitely worth the trip though as it's a beautiful drive, some of the views are breathtaking... More

Driving the Overseas highway is one of the great drives in the U.S. It only takes 4 hours to get to Key West from Florida city and while it is a two lane highway the traffic moved along fine. This is one of the unique highways in America and is very beautiful. Lots to see and do on the way... More

From Key Largo to Key West, you will be impressed with the beauty of the Gulf of Mexico on one side, and the Atlantic Ocean on the other side. As the emerald green waters turn azure blue, then to an effervescing clear blue while driving southbound, you will wonder why you didn't make the trip before! It's the week of... More

The Overseas Highway is an incredibly beautiful trip. 112 miles of Monroe County and the Florida Keys, at it's finest. As a professional driver, I've made the trip many times. Each as breathtaking as the next. Highly recommended.

Well it's 127 miles of mostly 2 lane roads so bring your patience, don't drive like a little old lady, pass when you can, be safe. There is alot of scenery along they way, watch for the various roadside attractions, giant lobster, conch, shark, dolphin, fish, etc. It is very scenic and worth the drive. It will take about 3...
