If you like bridges, a find. Second time just a long trip from the mainland. Lots of interesting she'll shops and redneck bars. A couple of decent seafood open air cafes closer to Key West. Little Palm Key is really upscale. Only accessible by their private launch. Top class but expensive. A serious anniversary spot with out kids Le

We've traveled all over the world, and I have to say this is one of my favorite dries. The string of small towns and beautiful views makes this a must drive.

After driving all the way From buffalo, this view tops any other. There are lots of great stops along the way. This is a drive not to rush, just soak up the view!

Great adventure with storms and the beauty of all of it. Saw some phenomenal water spouts on our return drive north to Miami

Beautiful highway from Miami to Key West. The road is right against the crystal clear water for the majority of the trip. There are plenty of places to pull over and walk into the water. Wear sandles or waterproof shoes in the water because the rocks are very hard and sharp.

This is the only highway that did not put me to sleep or make me annoyed from traffic! It was really cool to think that I was driving above water. There is so much to see as you drive, so it's worth a peek!

Just five Jimmy Buffett CDs. That's all it takes to drive from Fort Lauderdale beach to Key West. Lots of wonderful sights, sun, beaches, and turquoise-blue waters along the way (so, depending on how many times you stop, you may want to play them over and over again on your way!) So hop in the car, put the top down,... More

This is a must do!! I recommend renting a jeep for a day and scouting out your bucket list of "must sees"! Bahai Honda beach is a must. Camera sunscreen cooler!! Great time.

Getting to Key West is a lot of the fun. You drive over several bridges up to 7 miles long. Stunning

I drove it in three days, Miami to Key West. What was planned as a turn around the next day turned into staying in the Keys for 2 weeks. Just couldn't leave.
