This was our first drive from Ft Lauderdale to Key West. We took about 8 hours to drive in a rental convertible and stopped at several places along the way. Very enjoyable. I think if we do it again, we will stop and stay overnight to explore more of the keys.

The ride on the overseas highway is something you have to do. My fantasies indicated more bridges and a shorter ride, but it is still worth doing.. The 7 mile bridge is stunning - a must for every man or woman collecting experiences.

Other than flying , the only way to get to Key West is to drive and that's great because the only road that get's you there is the "Overseas Highway". It's hard to describe what it's like to drive over the many bridges that connect the Florida Keys while you are surrounded by water! The key (no pun intended) is to drive down to the Key West when the sun is shinning and given the great weather we had, I think the odds are excellent that whenever you go, the sun will be above you! With Trip Advisor on your phone, you will have great selections of restaurants to eat at and based on our experiences, the reviews were incredibly helpful! The drive alone is worth the trip!

This is one we all need to take time to do! We rented a convertible in Ft Lauderdale and drove down to Key West. What a trip. Dozens of Islands a long the way. And the views are amazing. Turquoise waters and amazing sea life. We stayed mid Keys in Islamorada at the Pelican Resort. It was old Florida but super clean and tremendous value for price paid. We stopped at The Keys Fisheries in Marathon for lunch both on the way down and back up. Their lobster Reuben just may be the best sammy in America. We travel a lot and loved this trip so very much!

Lovely drive from Miami to Key West. Gas up in Key Largo as the price gets higher as you get closer to Key West. Plenty of restaurants, motels, and tourist shops along the way.
