Take your time. Plenty of water to see for most of the trip to Key West. Find a small place to have lunch and relax. Check some of the pull-offs for great views.
Watch the one spot around the midlle where the speed limit drops to 35mph for just a few miles of the highway. Got my first ticket in 35 years there.

The ride down this highway is wonderful and many different colors of the water. The views are great but do not get in a hurry. In 15 years of traveling down this highway We have never seen a Key Deer.

love this road -- it's made for vacations. Slow travel, not too much traffic, and Keys and ocean on both sides. Very very laid back.

As in other reviews the first hour or so outside of Miami is not very scenic but once you get past Key Largo it's quite nice. Lots of seabirds, beautiful views of the sea, islands & clouds. Take your time and enjoy the drive.

The highway is 2 lane in most places. You need to realize this is not an interstate. You are suppose to look at the plants, water and wildlife and be on vacation. Relax because the road only 2 lanes and a lot of people are going and coming from your destination.
