This drive to Key West is long, but low key (pun intended!). Some parts are beautiful views of the mangrove islands dotting the ocean on both sides of the road. Fun to see the Key deer.

Driving down from the Florida mainland through the Keys is a bucket list item that must be completed once. The drive alone can help remove a little of the daily stress. Be patient when taking this route, as there is literally one way down and back. Follow the speed limit and enjoy the view.

If you love a good road trip, this is the ultimate trip. Beautiful turquoise water on both sides of the highway at many points, many interesting things to do, wonderful restaurants. Research all the key points to stop at like Key West Deer, Bahia Honda Park, Sunset Grill, feed the Tarpon at Robbies.

Anyone flying directly into Key West is missing out. The drive was one of the highlights of our trip. Places to stop and pull over next to the water were beautiful.

Drive island to island. Each has its own feel and flair. Drink in the various shades of emerald waters. It's like driving through the Caribbean.

I've driven over many a long bridge, but this one takes the key lime pie! Lots to see if you are watching while driving. It's an amazing thing to see and drive on.

Glad I did the drive but twice was enough. After leaving Key West at 9 a.m., heading to Lauderdale. Got home to Central Pa. @ 12:a.m., that's a long day.

We really enjoyed driving down through the keys. We live in FL and haven't been that far south before so it was an enjoyable trip. Unfortunately nowhere (that we saw) to stop and take photos, but would be a photographers dream stretch of road. This includes the old Flagler railroad line (that was converted into the road through the keys... More
