Directions to Biscayne National Park
Biscayne National Park is 95% water (which you may have noticed by now), but you can still drive to the park before getting your snorkel and flippers out . . . okay, fins, is that better . . . personally I prefer the word flippers!
Driving to Biscayne National Park
“All roads lead to Rome” as they say – who – erm, my Grandma for starters, but I’m sure she’d heard it somewhere before – anyway, I digress, all roads might lead to Rome, but there are only two roads which lead to Biscayne National Park – US-1 or the Florida Turnpike.
Biscayne National Park from the North
- US-1 – head south to Homestead, then turn left onto SW 328th Street – aka North Canal Drive – and keep going to the end of the road, after you’ve travelled around nine miles you should come to the entrance to Biscayne National Park.
- Florida Turnpike – take the road south as far as Exit 6 – aka Speedway Blvd – then turn left on the exit ramp and head south to SW 328th Street (North Canal Drive). When you get there turn left and keep going to the end of the road. It’s around five miles from here to the entrance of Biscayne National Park.
- Drive along the Overseas Highway – US-1 – north as far as Hempstead, then turn right onto – the SW 328th Street (North Canal Drive) – the first turning right after the Florida Turnpike entrance, keep going until you get to the end of the road, round about nine miles on the left hand side is the entrance of Biscayne National Park.
Yep, there’s a beautiful place waiting when you arrive at your destination – Biscayne National Park.
