Had heard stories of getting behind slow cars but there are passing places. Stops at Marine museums etc along way if you want to take the time. Breakfast at "Over Easy" was great" Coming and going!

This drive is a must for people visiting the keys. Whether Key West or the upper keys, must make time to enjoy this beautiful drive. Best drive available anywhere in the country. Rent a car and enjoy the beautiful drive.
