Driving over the 7 mile bridge gives beautiful, stunning ocean views in both directions! On a sunny day you will see a variety of blues & greens that the Caribbean is known for. You might also see a dolphin or other ocean wildlife if you are fortunate. The drive lasts about 10 minutes & is FREE! On the western end... More

We have been by and driven over the seven mile bridge more times than I can count since I was raised in Key West and then moved to Miami. We finally decided to take our bikes over there and ride out to Pigeon Key. My wife got winded before we got there so did not quire make our goal. She's... More

Gotta do it. The views, even on a overcast day were amazing. It's what you see in a book and promise yourself you'll do one day -just do it and you won't be disappointed

For me, the best part of FL is the Keys. Hit US 1 South and just keep driving through island after island of chilled, happy people who love the Caribbean life, the ocean and freedom. Eventually you come upon the Seven Mile Bridge. 7 miles over the Caribbean Sea. Expansive sea views left and right. Keep driving and take in... More

During our family vacation, we drove over this bridge everyday. The views are spectacular. You can see the old bridge as you drive across the newer one.

Walking this bridge is one of things I love most about this area. The water is beautiful and on low wind days, you can see way down. It is best to wear polarized sunglasses. In crossing the bridge, I have seen sea turtles, tons of spotted eagle rays, rays jumping out of the water, conch shells and lots of tarpon!... More

You can't beat a walk on the seven mile bridge. Water on both sides and no cars. Enjoy the views and sea life as well the fresh air.

I have travelled 7 Mile bridge for many years. It is one of the outstanding accomplishments in the US. The view from the bridge is breathtaking. The color of the water changes with the sun and wind as it impacts the waves and thE amount of sunlight that penetrates the shallow after near the bridge. As you look south you... More

This was one of the most scenic view from any bridges I've ever crossed. I wasn't driving so I had the luxury of seeing the beautiful water from both sides. We drive a 40' motor coach and the view from that high is even more incredible. I had to choose between sitting on one side and just enjoying it, or... More
