Over seas highway

The overseas highway is a must see if you make the drive to the keys. It is a place to take pictures and see some fabulous views of the water.

Plan your trip for four hours from downtown Miami. And don't speed. It is truly a pleasure to drive this route and so open the window and slow down. Don't be afraid to make a few turns and check out some small communities on the way down.

It is a hundred and twentyish miles drive. More than half of it on a two lane highway. Traffic can be a monster so plan accordingly. Much of the strive is at a speed limit of 45 or less. You do get many amazing views. The views are better once you pass Half way.

This is a must do including the seven mile bridge. The view and beautiful water is just beyond words. You must see for yourself!

We drove from Miami to Islamorada today for lunch. The overseas highway does have beautiful views but the traffic on weekends is insane. People drive slow taking in the view but it makes for horrendous traffic. Go early in the morning or late evening to avoid the bumper to bumper traffic and enjoy it.

I crossed over the original highway for my Navy duty in Key West. It was scary with the snowbirds RVs taking up more than their share of the highway! Now is is a piece of history and a pretty good fishing pier!

A bit over 100 miles of driving, but views that burn in your mind forever. The drive down or back up is spectacular. Beautiful water of all colors, islands by the thousands and the view is with any effort it takes to drive this road.

The views as you drive along are magnificent. We really enjoyed the walk along the 7 mile bridge. Lots of places to stop and get out of the car.

What better time then now to visit the Florida Keys? My family and I traveled from Fort Lauderdale to Key West last week. It was a fantastic and picturesque trip! We arrived in Key Largo very late at night so decided to stay for 2 nights. We were able to visit a couple of hot spots then we moved on... More
