It was interesting to see along the way to Key West. Wonder if it survived the hurricane, there were people fishing off of it in places and also saw small boats underneath it fishing.

This is one of the most scenic stretches out there. Very cool to look at the abandoned 7 mile bridge to the north. I went over the old one as a kid...much scarier than the great highway we have now.

Parts of this road are only about 3 feet above the water. The 8 mile bridge is stunning. The Honda Park is worth a trip, as is the walk up to the old Flagler bridge. Many sharks in the water there

Mainly an easy drive with so many views that if you stop for each one you will never make to the Key's! The drive is also filled with gift shops and fine restaurants. 7 mile bridge is also a fun drive. Make sure you know...More
