  • It's a series of bridges that connect several islands on your way to Key West. It can be windy, rainy, crowded, boring or stunningly gorgeous. As a driver, you can't take in the panoramic view unless ...  more »
  • Time travel it is not enough. Well, that page is the entrance of the adjacent bridge Marathonu, where you can sit down in peace, enjoy a cold beer and enjoy the beautiful sunset.

  • The trip across the 7 mile bridge is the hilight of any drive through the keys. Notice the changes in architecture to the old bridge as you cross. And notice Pigeon Key about half way across - a great...  more »

  • I love this bridge. I had three vacations in Key West and there is nothing better than fishing on this bridge. The kind of sea life you catch and release is amazing. waters are beautiful and turquoise and blue. Atlantic ocean on one side and gulf of Mexico on the other side. The end of this bridge has fishing on gulf side of the bridge and there is a small beach with the bathroom access on the Atlantic side of the bridge. This bridge makes memories in my life. I love it ....
  • Food was ok nothing special. My tacos were wrapped in a aluminum foil i guess to save cooking time but my tortilla was saggy. I ordered Mahi tacos, but the salad cut was too big for my tacos, such as tomatoes big pieces same for the pieces of lettuce. HOWEVER, the service is exeptional!!!
  • I hate driving, but I LOVE taking the few hour drive from Ft. Lauderdale to the Keys. It's best to make a day trip out of it, so you can stop at all the little beaches, shops, and foodie places along the way. Absolutely GORGEOUS drive!
  • Me and my wife love this place. They have great food. breakfast and lunch. The service is really good. It feels very homey and the location is great. We keep coming back.
  • By far the coolest thing my wife and I did in the keys. The walk was about two miles to and two miles back from Pigeon Key and we saw a stingray, two sharks, a number of incredibly colorful starfish, plenty of sea birds, schools of fish, and were told we barely missed a sea turtle. The key at the end was closed, but the walk was very, very worth it. A storm was rolling in over the sea as we walked back and I was able to get some incredible photos. That is all ignoring the odd and alone feeling of walking down the bridge in the first place. Once a rail line, then turned into a car bridge, and finally decommissioned in 1985 and turned into a pedestrian bridge. It is really cool just walking down the center of it, nobody in either direction for hundreds of feet, thinking about the history of the place. Sad I couldn't get down to the key, but there were some awesome shots of the fully abandoned extension of the highway from the end. Really, really cool.
