Not as interesting as I thought it would be. You can't really tell that you are on the bridge and it's not that high above the sea (for the most part) so you don't really get much of a view.

Which ever end you are on it always fun. Approaching from the north, there is plenty of places to stop and enjoy the view. Coming from the south, there are two small beaches to enjoy. The one on the West side is great for fishing and the one on the East side is great for swimming and snorkeling. When the... More

If you like to see water on the left, and water on the right, then this is the bridge for you. One night while crossing there was a thunder storm in the distance, made for some wonderful views !

I drove this bridge for years, and it is so improved from years ago. I used to drive with white knuckles. Now it is a nice leisurely drive where you can enjoy the scenery around. If you time it right you can see some great sunsets. Sometimes I don't understand the other drivers who are passing you when you are... More

I saw the most beautiful sunset from the bridge last week! It's a bridge, it's long, you go up, you go down, it goes on and on!

The Seven Mile Bridge is part of the Overseas Highway and runs from Marathon to Little Duck Key. It is a beautiful scenic bridge over the ocean with spectacular views. Part of the old bridge still exist and is accessible. You can walk 2.2 miles to Pigeon Keys. At the entrance you can donate to the Friends of Old Seven.... More

I've been on that bridge many times in past years but every time I drive there it is like a new experience all over again. I've never experienced any traffic there and the view is breathtaking. Often think about the scene from "True Lies".

Lots of sky, gorgeous clouds. Part of the keys experience. Amazing tidal current creates formidable challenge for boaters.

It's just a bridge, right? But wow, it's 7 freaking miles long! It's kind of surreal driving over the bridge with the ocean on both sides and a dilapidated old railroad bridge running parallel. Beautiful and just breathtaking.

The drive across seven mile bridge is a beautiful drive with a nice view of the old bridge and several of the keys.
