Alligator Alley or 41. Keys?

I am heading to the Keys. Coming down I75 should I take Alligator Alley across or 41? Towing a 23 footer.
Thanks.

    If you're in a hurry take the Alley. If you have time and want to enjoy the ride take 41 and as a bonus stop at Clyde Butchers place. If you go 41 you'll be driving by some of the best fishing in America, take a rod with you. Oh and take some bug spray!!

    Agreed... 41 if you have some time to kill.
    Tarpon... everything else is just bait.

    41 to the turnpike. Krome is rough as hell south of Dade corners. Fill up at the Racetrack as you leave Florida City

    Ditto on Race track, last gas station on right before you hit that 18 mile grind..Burger truck there isn't bad either for a quick bite

    Drove 41 a bunch of times. It's shorter and quicker. Scenery is a lot better as well. Just slow down by the RES.

    Thanks.
    Just made that trip a week ago on (41).. Was nice but I must say that Krome is a MAJOR PITA for slow idiot drivers, the poorly timed traffic lights and rough road. ..Especially when you hit the agricultural area...41 is a nice quiet stretch though
