Ride all 3 Florida National Parks?

I am not from the area, but I would like to know if anyone has ridden or has some advice on riding to each of the 3 Southern Florida National Parks. I plan to fly in to Naples to visit a friend, then I would like to ride to Everglades NP, Biscayne NP, and then on down to Dry Tortugas NP (taking the ferry over there from Key West).

I have seen old posts that said riding on the highway thru the Keys is not for faint of heart - but it was from years ago. Is it any better now? Has anyone ridden that stretch?

I am quite used to riding with lots of traffic - but I am interested to hear what others experienced on this roadway.
- Is there a lot of debris in the bike lane?
- Is there any shoulder that can be considered a bike lane?
- How bad are the drivers (bike-haters?)?

I would like to go in late January, and I like to ride in the early morning.
