turnpike or 27

Any suggestions or comments on taking the turnpike from Orlando down to keys or anyone recommend taking 27 to save the tolls. Will be traveling this area on 5/23 (thursday morning) @ 6am.

If your purpose is just to save the tolls, take the turnpike. If you want a little slower pace and more chance to see the countryside take 27 realizing it will take more time.

We take 27, but because we prefer a less congested drive and we don't mind the extra half hour.

What do you do at the turn to Miami? Do you get on 997?

What you save in tolls you spend on gas using 27 IMO. Take the turnpike is my suggestion.

Personally, we would never go any other way from Orlando to Key West but the Turnpike - unless it's on fire.
