“What a Road Trip”
Reviewed December 31, 2011

We drove down to Key West from Fort Lauderdale the day before our cruise. Driving on the Overseas Highway was awesome!!!! Just seeing all the bridges and waterways on the way down. The seven mile bridge was breathtaking.
Everyone needs to travel on the Overseas Highway at least once in their lifetime.
Islamorada would have to be my favorite "key" along the way.

“Loved it.”
Reviewed December 31, 2011

If you have plenty of time and sunny weather, this is the best way to be introduced to the keys. It's well worth the 3 hour drive from Miami Airport.

“Leisurely, nice drive”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

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.
