Seven Mile Bridge, Marathon

4.6
The famous Seven Mile Bridge was one of the longest bridges in the world when it was built. Take a stroll along this landmark to see why locals and visitors love this bridge, which has been featured in such films as "License to Kill" and "Mission Impossible III." View the Gulf and Atlantic like never before, take pictures, and maybe even spot a manatee in the water. You will find activities at either end of the bridge. Enjoy the coconut palms, stop in to some nearby shops, or lounge at one of the beaches. See Seven Mile Bridge and all Marathon has to offer by arranging your trip with our Marathon day trip planner.

  • The Seven Mile Bridge was a part of the Flagler Train line that opened the way for people to travel to Key West Florida by train instead of boats. In the 1930's the rail way was converted into a auto highway to Key West,and Florida keys. The old 7mile bridge was apart of that highway until the 1980's when new modifications were made to the highway. The old section was not a part of the new updates. Now it's a walking path over open water so far out. Not open the car traffic anymore. You sure can take some beautiful pictures out there thou.
  • We enjoy this pier on bikes or on foot. We often see turtles, sharks, rays and other fish and birds. Very convenient to stop here for a leg stretch and some fresh air on the way south on US1.
  • Great fishing. Public boat launch on West end. Great kayaking spot too!
  • One of the most beautiful bridges in the world. Very fub for a family trip. Be awere that is only one lane each way, and if you get stuck behind a truck you will have to be patient.
  • Literal 7 mile long bridge, awesome to drive over especially your first time. Lots of stuff to see in the surrounding area.
