Some good scenic views but also lots of tall bushes, trees and ulgy buildings along the drive to Key West. Drive speed limit. We saw lots of police cars waiting and watching.

Lovely ride and gorgeous views as we were driving down to Key West. Water all around. It would be lovely by bicycle or moped for sure.

First trip on the Overseas Highway for my wife and me. I expected more bridge travel and not as much land (island) travel. It is a good mix but be aware that speed limits are highly enforced. Was pleasantly surprised that the town's are larger...More

If you want to get to Key West you have to go on the overseas highway and for me it never gets old, its amazing to see the old bridge run alongside the new one and the pelicans or dolphins if you are lucky

This was a long boring trek from Miami. Next time I will travel by air. You drove between 35 and 55 mph....and it was mostly a 2 lane road. I did it once before and must be to old now.

It's a long trip so you have plenty of time to view everything around you. The views of the ocean are great and the color of the water is amazing. Seeing the rain shafts so far out over the water are great for photos.
