The Overseas Highway from Florida City to Key West can be a very interesting drive or for some people very long and boring. It depends on your mindset.I find it interesting despite having driven it dozens of times. If you are in a hurry refrain from speeding. The speed limit is strictly enforced by the Monroe County Sheriffs Department. Take... More

It was cool to drive down! Definitely a long drive from Ft. Lauderdale. The way back was dark and it can be a little annoying when you get stuck behind slow people. Still, cool to see all the little shops and attractions along the way!

The most enjoyable highway trip I've ever taken. The views are amazing. Great places to pull off, all kinds of public spots and numerous state parks to choose from.

Wow.... Fabulous views. Love the different shades of the water. Seeing the old bridge is cool... I actually expected to see the water more on the entire drive to Key West so I was thrilled with the overseas highway!

Highway runs from Florida mainland through the Keys. Most of it is 45-50 MPH limit, some areas slower as result of traffic. Several areas famous from movies.

Sea all around, good road, traveled during daytime. You can still see the old road next to you and it is amazing to see so much of it going from one point to another. The view was beautiful and it was one of the most breathtaking roads for me.

We drove from Key Largo to Key West on a beautiful sunny day. It took two hours, we rarely got above 50 mph. An absolutely wonderful drive. Scenery is breath taking! We rented a car in Key Largo (Avis) dropped it off in Key West, and flew back. Absolutley the best way to go!

But make sure you take some time out to view at least one bridge from the parking spots alongside the road!

It takes a couple hours from Key Largo to Key West but it is truly worth it. The clear blue-green waters are gorgeous, it is amazing. There are so many shops, pull off spots, restaurants, parks, etc the whole way. We saw a key deer on the way down on Big Pines Key, and several iguanas. In total there are... More
