This week on the Travel Bits blog, we’re celebrating the release of the updated version of 101 Travel Bits: The Florida Keys and the Overseas Highway (if you already have it, it’s very similar to the previous version, except with some updates involving Hurricane Irma).
Over on the Travel Bits blog, you can check out our latest: 4 Facts About the Overseas Highway in the Florida Keys. An excerpt:
The Overseas Highway opened to road travel on January 25, 1928. However, the original road did not stretch in an unbroken highway between the mainland and Key West. Instead, the road consisted of two segments (the first from the mainland to Lower Matecumbe Key and the second from No Name Key to Key West). In between, vehicles had to take a 41 mile ferry ride between the islands. Thus, the first version of the Overseas Highway was overseas in more than one sense of the word!
