“We Missed The Attraction.”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Giant steel towers reaching for the sky? Huge primary cables cradling a 6 lane roadway? NO ~ None of that.
Glittering steel superstructure shining in the morning sun? NO ~ None of that.
I saw the pre-stress concrete sections sitting on the poured concrete pillars of this pretty standard bridge across the inner bay. Not even the toll booth was all that extraordinary.
Just a quick trip from Niceville to Destin.
I guess we missed the attraction.

“Great Way to Get to Destin”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The bridge is always well maintained. Nice scenic view across the bay. Reasonably priced. The toll booth area can be a little hazardous with all the traffic.

“It's a bridge......”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Our GPS got us into Destin over this bridge so this is the only way we know to get there. I mean, if it's not a raggedy bridge, how can you really review? We did have a great view of the water and it cost $3.00. That's about I can say about it.

“Its a toll bridge but works”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Use Sunpass to make trips back and forth to Destin. Incredible time saver compared to driving all the way around from Niceville. sunpass is electronic tag that allows you to bypass manned toll booths and save money at same time.

“A Better Way To Destin Tourist Area...”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Yes it's a toll bridge. Yes it can be crowded, but then again so are the main roads of Destin during high season. If you cannot take the traffic, then you probably should not go to the Destin/Fort Walton area in the first place.

But it's traffic-y because it's popular. This bridge provides a better route to Destin. That's all one can really say about it other than there can be nice views from it. :-D
