This is a very lovely drive along the keys down to Key West. There are several small towns to stop along the way to explore.

Over half of this road is 2 lane (1 lane each direction), and between semi's, campers, RVs, and pickup trucks pulling boats, you're going nowhere fast. Relax and enjoy the scenery, and you'll get there, eventually.

This is the road that takes you from Miami through all the Keys to Key west. It is a very scenic route with lots of traffic so be patient.

This was our first trip to the area and decided to travel by car to KW instead of flying in directly. It really was a beautiful, scenic drive. You are surrounded by the calming aquamarine water all around. You may see boaters and some wildlife....More

This is a very pretty drive with water on both sides. You see a lot of water activity with fishing, boats and her skis.

If you have not driven this route, try it at least once. Expect to go mostly 45-50 miles per hour. The water views make it fun. Lots of places you can stop along the way.

While driving you have to see this. This is not good to drive, it's closed. I hope they can fix it and open for public

A long drive from Naples but the views are worth it. The traffic is heavy anytime. Love the little towns along the way. Very little damage left from Irma.

My experience with bridges in Florida includes the very high and "I hope it is not windy--because we could fly off" type of bridges. This ride from Miami to Key West was scenic and a very easy drive. Loved the places when land could be...More

Apologies for my very slow reply. Most of it (the southern part) south of Key Largo is delightful.
