Who would go to Keys and not travel 7 mile bridge? Almost like flying. Neat to look at the dilapidated original bridge which runs parallel. Fun to look at all of the boats out on the water. Hint- have your wife drive the other way...More

Indeed this is a 7 mile bridge, the views of the water are beautiful. You will notice the still (mostly) standing old original bridge also. Ends of it used for recreation, fishing, walking and biking.

I have always wanted to drive this road and across the 7 mile bridge. The sites were beautiful and the ocean water was so clear and memorizing. I would recommend this drive, both as a driver and passenger. Check off of my bucket list.

Either way you go this bridge takes you to paradise. The view is amazing! Only way to get to lower keyes other than a boat! Runs alongside Flaglers railroad for a bit. Takes you back in time! Pay attention and do not pass. Beware of...More

There are pull off areas on the bridge where people fish. You have to be on the look out because the traffic moves quickly.
