Nice views, but a long, long, slow trip with many little villages and low speed areas. Worth experiencing, but takes forever.

A one hundred mile long strip mall. Tailor made for tourists. It is too bad that the development of this prime and pristine stretch of highway could not have been developed with an eye towards beauty and not the commerce extravaganza that it turned into.

Very nice ride to Key West. Several nice areas and eateries to stop and take in. Watch out for speed traps and pedestrians as well.

Fly into Miami or Ft Lauderdale and DRIVE out to the Keys! It's one of the prettiest drives you'll ever take. The Keys offer a special hue of pale green water that I really haven't ever seen anywhere else, and when the sun is bright and shining, The Overseas Highway is like a drive through a jewel box of sparkling aqua gems, especially around Islamorada. There are so many great little places to stop. Please try Marker 88 in Islamorada, a nice almost half-way point between Key Kargo and Key West. Remember...go slow...it's the
Keys and you've got nowhere else to be!

First time driving to the Keys and the Overseas Highway is the only way to get there. The road, for the most part is in excellent condition and the views from the bridges are amazing. Traffic at times bogged down due to "Looky Lou's" checking out what the people to the side of the road were doing but that is to be expected. Great drive, one which I would not hesitate to repeat.
