Driving south along the scenic Overseas Highway has become more informative and enjoyable with the release of the audio CD “Florida Keys Road Trip, Miami To Key West by Mile Markers,” the brainchild of Keys resident Harry Bowman.

Meticulously created and narrated to follow the highway from MM 126 on the mainland at Florida City to MM 0 in Key West, the 2.5-hour travelogue accurately guides drivers on their journey through interesting attractions, points of interest, history and Keys lifestyles. Facts and trivia keep listeners tuned in, complemented by sound effects and background music by local musicians.
Narrator Bowman takes listeners through Keys history from the islands’ geological formation through today’s lifestyles and culture. Listeners know when and where to walk on the Bahia Honda beach and stroll along the historic Old Seven Mile Bridge.
Combined with the original northbound “Florida Keys Road Trip,” the 2-CD set makes a useful and entertaining gift for friends, family or a personal souvenir.
Each CD, priced at $24 (includes Florida state sales tax, shipping and handling), can be purchased at many attractions and lodging properties or by e-mailing
