Where to Stop and Eat on the Drive From Miami to Key West: Expect a lot of seafood and key lime pie
Sometimes an island escape is necessary, but the hassle of flying and other major travel plans is a deterrent. Luckily for Miami the Florida Keys are right down the street. The Southernmost point, Key West, is an easy 3.5 hours away but upon arrival it feels a million miles from home. The drive through the Florida Keys includes hundreds of tiny islands, 42 different bridges to cross over, and tons of food stops along the way. Expect to find dishes like conch fritters, some of the freshest seafood around, and key lime pie galore.
It’s a land of dive bars and live music and everyone seems to be having the time of their life. Don’t be in a rush to try it all right away, be on island time. Get ready to take it easy and enjoy life with a daiquiri in hand.
Below is a play by play of where to stop on the way to and from Key West from Miami.
