Featured Destination: The Overseas Highway

The 113-mile (181-kilometer) drive on Highway 1 from mainland Florida to Key West induces sensory overload. Besides the natural beauty along the route—tidal flats, teal waters dotted by distant islands—the so-called Overseas Highway awes you in its own right as an engineering marvel. Its concrete stretches across impossible expanses of water, the Atlantic spreading out to the left, the Gulf to the right. (Source: National Geographic)

I haven't been there yet but I was planning to for quite a while already. The photos are incredible with all the scenic beauties and great engineering marvels. I wouldn't miss that for anything but in the right time. :)
