Check in at the departure point and choose a seat on the modern luxury touring coach for a 7:45am departure from Miami. Aircraft-style reclining seats, large panoramic viewing windows, air-conditioning, a restroom, and a professionally-narrated audio tour guide to the Florida Keys make a touring coach the ideal choice for a relaxing 4-hour ride down U.S. Highway 1 to Key West.
The road runs south through suburban Miami and into Florida City, Gateway to the Florida Keys. From there, interesting scenery abounds as the coach passes through the Southern Everglades and leaves the Florida mainland behind on a narrow land bridge connecting to Key Largo, the northernmost Florida Key. This part of U.S. 1 is called the Overseas Highway, and for the next 105 miles, breathtaking views of turquoise and emerald waters on both sides of the road alternate with busy resort villages, bustling marinas, beach parks, and sportfishing harbors.
The Overseas Highway passes across 31 Keys large and small, and 43 bridges span open ocean water to carry the road all the way down to Key West, the last inhabited island in the Florida Keys chain. It is easy to see why this route is listed among the top scenic road trips in the United States. The waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the north and the Florida Straits to the south seem to lap against the shoulders of the highway in many places, and the horizon-wide ocean vistas are stunning.
About 2 hours into the journey, the coach rolls off the busy resort island of Marathon Key and onto one the world’s most spectacular bridges. The Seven Mile Bridge spans 6.79 miles of open water, rising to 65 feet above the sea at the ship crossing point near Pigeon Key. The views are so spectacular, the sensations of flying over water so thrilling, that this bridge has been used for action scenes in many television shows and movies. If you are a fan of the Fast and Furious series, or have seen Bad Boys or True Lies, you are sure to recognize the setting. Crossing the Seven Mile Bridge is an unforgettable highlight of any journey along the Florida Keys, a bucket list item you should definitely experience.
The southwestern end of the Seven Mile Bridge marks the gateway to the Lower Keys. Here the coach enters a different world where small islands cut by clear water channels and curved around shallow bays host small villages, fishing camps, and large areas of untouched tropical bush country. This is the American Caribbean, one of the most exotic places you can go without an airline ticket and passport. The sights are so captivating that it seems like only minutes pass before the coach is crossing from Stock Island into Key West.
Disembarking at about noon in historic Old Town Key West, you are welcome to explore lunch options or immediately board the trolley at a nearby stop. Key West trolley tours have been an island attraction for over 25 years, and the comfortable open-sided cars are a really nice way to take in the sights and sounds of Key West. The route covers all the major island highlights modern and historic, with 13 convenient stops to make touring, shopping, and dining a breeze.
Take photos at the Southernmost Point and tour the Ernest Hemingway House, the Harry Truman Little White House and other historic sites. Hit the beach. Visit Sloppy Joe’s and Captain Tony’s Saloon where so many legends have bellied up to the bar. Play, party, and enjoy America’s Caribbean paradise to the fullest knowing you have a safe and restful ride back to Miami with a professional driver at the wheel.
