Going to the keys in 3 weeks. Never been. Tell me about the overseas highway. Is it all two lanes? Is wind a problem? If you have a flat, is there a shoulder? Any comments or tips appreciated. Thanks!

Go, have fun! No worries! No tips necessary! If you have a flat, call your road service. You won't have a flat!


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

As an aside, there are no Little Key Deer on the bridge! You will be much less rich when you return but you have to chalk up the high price to the great fun you had! Enjoy!

Once south of Key Largo the drive is beautiful!! Have done it many times all times of the day and night. The northern keys are pretty tight together, in the south the bridges are a bit longer, seven mile bridge has wide shoulders.
Don’t worry go have fun!!!

It’s like most other roads with vistas you will photograph and talk about a long time

We just got back a week ago. The road varies from 2-4 lane, but it is a beautiful drive across the bridges.
Just be prepared, once you get in the keys, you are still 2 hours from Key West, it is a long way to the end.
have a great time!!
