MIAMI TO KEY WEST, FLORIDA – GYPSY GUIDE
This is definitely one of the USA’s most famous and classic road trips and you’ll want to spend a day (or more) sightseeing from Miami to Key West with the GyPSy Guide Driving Tour App.
Along the Overseas Highway, we’ll track the story of how those incredible bridges that cross the ocean and connect the Florida Keys, turned from a man’s dream into a spectacular reality.
The return distance from Miami to Key West is approx 380 miles, so expect to spend 12 hours if doing this as a day trip from Miami.
This will still allow you enough time to enjoy at our recommended locations including John Pennenkamp State Park, where you can snorkel to an old Spanish shipwreck, a visit to the Tiki Bar, where the Rumrunner cocktail was invented and the best beach in the Keys, Bahia Honda, plus more, as well as a having a few hours to explore Key West itself.

Where does the tour start?
Start the tour anywhere along the Dolphin Expressway 836 heading west. From Miami Beach you can start by driving west across the MacArthur Causeway.
If starting directly from Miami International Airport, follow the signs to join 836 West.
NOTE that the tour route does follow the expressway which has a toll.
What should I bring?
Its important to keep charging your device as you drive and we recommend using a DC cigarette lighter-style of charger. Plugging directly into the vehicle’s USB port is not recommended.
It can be very hot, so bring water, sunscreen and a hat.
Make sure you have lots of memory for your camera or phone – you will take many photos!
Has Hurricane Irma changed the tour?
The devastating Hurricane, Irma, from August 2017 certainly caused many problems along the Keys. However most of the best things to see are natural or significantly strong structures. It is very worthwhile to visit, and businesses in the Florida Keys will very much appreciate visitors returning to the destination. But be aware that some services may not have completely returned to normal operation.
