Hitchhiking down the Florida Keys is easy and you can always use the local buses to get all the way down to Key West. Hitching back up north proves more difficult. Good time to go is when Fantasy Fest is happening, a week-long street party in October, I found this celebration to be better than Mardi Gras!
== Law ==
316.130 Pedestrians; traffic regulations.—
(5) No person shall stand in the portion of a roadway paved for vehicular traffic for the purpose of soliciting a ride, employment, or business from the occupant of any vehicle.
(18) No pedestrian shall walk upon a limited access facility or a ramp connecting a limited access facility to any other street or highway
:(19) LIMITED ACCESS FACILITY.—A street or highway especially designed for through traffic and over, from, or to which owners or occupants of abutting land or other persons have no right or easement, or only a limited right or easement, of access, light, air, or view by reason of the fact that their property abuts upon such limited access facility or for any other reason. Such highways or streets may be parkways from which trucks, buses, and other commercial vehicles are excluded; or they may be freeways open to use by all customary forms of street and highway traffic.
The way this is worded makes hitchhiking laws completely open to interpretation. If an officer tells you not to hitchhike where you are hitchhiking it is probably best to move on.
