Drive across 7 Mile Bridge in a Convertible. You will need a passenger to take pictures

My partner and I take turns driving, so the other person can just look and repeat "Oh my God" over and over. BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Water about a million different colors.

Very scenic drive to Key West, includes bridges connecting the keys, views of the bays and ocean. Lodging available on the keys to break up the ride, and an alternate to staying on Key West.

What a marvel of American engineering and craftsmanship. We truly are a country of remarkable people to have built these amazing structures. It was interesting to read about the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935 that ruined Flaglers' railroad to Key West, and there is memorial to the veterans that were building it, and were lost in the hurricane.

Great views. Nice place to visit. Plenty places to eat along the way. Clean environment. We stopped along the way and walked all over the place. Water is amazingly beautiful.

The water colors are amazing, pictures don't do it justice. So much to look at, they should have a place to pull over and take pictures

We were just in the Keys and stayed in Duck Key. There is only the resort there and another restaurant, so had to drive elsewhere for food and while Key West isn't all that far, traffic can get backed up, particularly if there is a wreck. We encountered several wrecks. it's also a bit f a trek from Miami Int.... More

this is a must see on every persons to do list. scenery along the way is breathtaking, greeny blue waters, with boats dotted everywhere. small peaceful communities, with a cool party place at the end. Only downfall is a 3 hour drive end to end on a one lane highway. slow going. don't be in a rush

The entire highway is well maintained and everything is well described. Once you get on it's straight thru to any of the Keys and ends at Key West

I don't know why they have this as an attraction. If it wasn't here you couldn't get on the islands. It is impressive though and depending on the time of year you see pelicans and other types of seabirds. Tip get gas early on the main land or in key largo because the further you go the price goes up.
