  • One long road all along the keys. Really amazing. The seven mile bridge is certainly something to see. It can be a long drive though if you hit traffic  more »
  • The only way to Key West by land and the main road through the Florida Keys. Great views. Peaceful driving with limited places to stop between main cities.  more »
  • What a marvel! We are facing a natural wonder, often uninhabited small islands with lush greenery, accessible only by sea, waters from a variety of colors. It would be impossible to enjoy these amazing views if love man's hand had not allowed building bridges often quite lengthy (one of these comes close to 12 kilometers). The only regret is the fact that the best pictures should be taken by one of these bridges but unfortunately on the decks you cannot stop. It remains a wonder!
