From Orlando to Key West


I am at Orlando right now. Tomorrow I am going to Key West. I have 2 days free until go to Miami.

What is the best way to go Key West? East or West Coast? Any interesting place to know in this trip (Orlando to Key West)? I am by car!

Thank you!

From Orlando to Key West is an 8 hour drive if you don't make many stops. I would take the turnpike straight thru to Florida City. Keep in mind there are cashless tolls in Miami. Look at the Florida Keys forums for ideas to check out on the drive thru the keys.

I agree, the turnpike til you get to the end, then US 1.

Interesting stops include Alabama Jacks on Card Sound Rd, Robbie Marian where you can feed the giant tarpon, Scotty's landing for lunch in Marathon, Big Pine Key to see the tiny mini deer.
