This is a nice drive compared to most highway driving I have done. The water is quite lovely. The main issue with this drive is that it is slow, long and if you're stuck behind a slow driver there aren't many opportunities to pass. I recommend doing it at least once just to get the real experience of the Keys. If you're only going down to Key West it's worth stopping at a restaurant in one of the upper keys just to see get more a feel for the Florida Keys.

The Keys are so beautiful and flying into Miami to drive down the overseas highway is part of the wonderful adventure!

The drive from Key Largo to Key West must be driven at least once in your life. If you have the choice of driving or not, do it once. You will not be sorry. There are so many places to stop on the way and the scenery is die for!

I biked from Miami down to KW.It was fabulous. The Gulf of Mexico was to my right and the Atlantic Ocean was to my left for 150 miles.

Stayed overnight in Key Largo and Marathon. There were some bike paths, but a lot of on the road riding.

If you like biking, you will love this. (There is a website dedicated to this endeavor: http://www.dep.state.fl.us/gwt/state/keystrail/

Incredible view! A little intimidating for this driver, but the view was worth it :-)
