Series – Top 10 Drives of a lifetime: #3 The Florida Keys

The 181-kilometer drive on the Florida Keys Scenic Highway is definitely one of a kind.  The so-called Overseas Highway, travels through some of the nation's most spectacular scenery, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico, and winds through vistas of natural beauty, areas rich in history and legend, views of spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Folks in the Florida Keys still describe the stretch of US 1 from Key Largo to Key West as the "Road to Paradise." At each spot, you can park the car and also non-divers should find plenty else to do, from snorkeling to exploring state parks to visiting museums. From the first island of Key Largo to the “southernmost city” of Key West, take some time to experience the splendor of this byway, and find a feeling of beauty and relaxation in a one-of-a-kind location found no where else in the world.
