From Miami International Airport, take LeJeune Road south to 836 West, going to Turnpike Extension, south to US 1 and to the Keys.
Mile Markers. Down here in the Keys, the Overseas Highway is like our Mainstreet. And the best way to get around is to know the mile marker of your destination. These little green signs that dot our highway every mile begin just south of Florida City with number 127 and run all the way down to zero in Key West. They're like our addresses. If you know the mile marker of where you're going, getting there is easy. Here's a quick guide.
