“Nice drive”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

If you going the first time time to Key West it´s great to do the drive down to the island on your own. I expected it a little more spectacular but it´s fun if you see it for the first time. Normally we drive down from Miami and take the plane back after our stay.

“Beautiful Views”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

We enjoyed the drive and stopping at the different Keys. This is a marvel of an overseas highway. It would have been nicer on a clear day, because it rained while we were on the road.

“Speed trap”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

The speed limit changes every block. Cops on every block just waiting for you to go one mile over the speed limit. Police waiting at bottom of causeway where they know you will automatically pick up speed then they give you a speeding ticket for 6 miles above the speed limit which varies from 35-55 in a matter of blocks. Definitely made to entrap and harass tourists and supplement the incomes of the towns. Pretty to look at, pretty to drive through, but BEWARE SPEED TRAP.

“Slow drive”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Just wish the speed limit was a little higher, but given the terrain and the population density, that really wouldn't work. The pavement was in good shape overall.

“ancient mariner”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

water, water, everywhere, yet not one drop... just an incredible ride, and it doesn't take much imagination to channel -- not pun intended -- the old Florida East Coast Railroad plying this very route until the 1935 hurricane swept it away... do check forecasts...
