Great trip down the Dixie Highway. Goes thru many little towns and cays. The water views on both side were great !

Of the 100 miles or so that make up the Florida Keys, really only the last 40 miles of it (past Marathon) are actually scenic. You don't even see the ocean/bay through any of Key Largo. That surprised me a bit because I thought it...More

Drove from the main land of florida to key west. Beautiful ocean, little islands and the old highway. The old one looks like it needs to be taken down.

Very scenic part of America. The drive is worth the trip out to Florida. The water is beautiful and crystal blue.

This iconic drive did not disappoint. From kitschy stops along the way to the, at times, spectacular and unrestrained vistas, this is one cool commute.

As someone who is afraid of both bridges and deep water, I was dreading this part of our trip to Key West--however, it was much cheaper to fly in to Miami and drive down, than to fly directly to KW. Anything for a buck! :)...More

Hurried, harried, congested Miami gives way to the long scenic drive down the keys. About 155m of mostly single (road repair) and some double lane highway through quintessential shore communities down to Key West. It's a 3 to 4 hour drive depending on your pace...More

I believe the Florida Turnpike has tolls through Florida City which is the gateway to the keys. You might be able to avoid tolls by slower routes to Florida City. If you have a rental car you can buy a SunPass at Publix.
