The Florida Keys Scenic Highway is one incredible drive. One side you have the Atlantic Ocean and the other is the Gulf of Mexico. Driving down the highway was great. The views of the water was unbelievable. The shades of blue from deep aqua, to light turquoise to baby blue were a sight to see.
Liz and I enjoyed driving this stretch of highway. There are plenty of spots to stop and eat, take pictures or just enjoy the views.
The best way to come to the Keys is by car. It allows you the freedom to stop along the way and enjoy the wonders of the Overseas Highway that spans a multitude of bridges and small keys, all the way to Key West.
Most of the towns are small enough to explore by foot but to get to places out of the town you are staying, you need a car or at least a bike.
