“What an adventure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

While I'm not a fan of bridges, I really enjoyed this one. The scenery was unbelievable...the water, the birds, the history and so many fabulous views. People actually drive carefully too, which was a relief to me. We had good weather while crossing, so that made it extra special for sightseeing.

“Love this bridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

To be clear, this is the old 7 mile bridge I'm referring to. You can walk it from both ends to some degree but our route was from Marathon. The views from the bridge are fantastic if the water is pretty clear. We saw lots of turtles this time round, and unfortunately lots of jelly fish too, and I mean lots! Pelicans and osprey fly past you and the walk is about 2 miles out to Pigeon Key.
Running the bridge in the morning is good too but make sure you take some water! Even at 7am there are a few folk out there going for a walk.

This bridge is why we love Marathon so much and it would be a great shame if they closed it instead of repairing. Here's hoping it never comes to that.

Enjoyed waverunner tour from Marathon Key to Molasses Key along bridge! Fun to read history of bridge and step on old sections of the original bridge.

“Loved walking the Old 7 Mile!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

We used to drive across it every year for our annual vacation. Fun to see how narrow it really is. It makes a fabulous walking path. Saw a loggerhead turtle underneath it and an osprey eating a fresh dinner. I hope they can preserve it for the community to enjoy.
