Just came back from KW to FLL.
4 hrs with only a gas stop.
Radar everywhere. Advise your driver
to stick to speed limits.
Have patience, especially mid-day. Traffic
volume increases. Read: chunky power smoothie
through a long, thin straw.
I agree with all the above stops, but I always like to
add something different...why else read CC?
If you want to avoid all the people, restaurants, tips, etc.
and relax some. Here's a cheap alternative.
Stop at Publix supermarket in Marathon Key, get some
fresh subs or tenders and cold drinks; get whatever.
Check your gas. Get back in the car and drive over the
Seven Mile Bridge. Immediately after the bridge
is a small park (Veterans Park) with picnic tables
and a great view. No charge. Take your shoes off, turn
up the Jimmy Buffet music, walk out in the water and be
a part of nature....a no A/C lunch.
The money you save... put toward an excursion to
Fort Jefferson via seaplane, if the weather is good.
We just did this yesterday...awesome day...great snorkeling.
We used Key West Seaplane Adventures at the International airport.
Just a second opinion to all the fine suggestions so far.
In any case, enjoy.
