Bridge Tourist Spot
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. Seven Mile Bridge is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Marathon Edition.

  • As part of the Overseas Highway it is subject to the need for good weather as the Highway. It is impressive driving over the water for seven miles but you can only pull off in the beginning or end.  more »
  • The sunsets from this spot are unbeatable. Head there approximately 1 hour before sunset. Walk as far as you can, and just soak up the beauty. You will never forget it  more »

  • Awesome area with beautiful blue water. Some fishermen are usually fishing over the side of the bridge. Good area to spot local wildlife, we saw an iguana and a small crab.
  • Amazing view and drive on the bridge. They are few stop by places to hang out and take pictures. A must go long drive.
  • It's a bridge and it's 7 miles. That's about it. But it has beautiful views the entire way.
  • I use to love to walk the bridge. I can't wait till it's done
  • The abandoned old bridge is worthy hiking. We never reached the end of old bridge because of time limitation. Nice spot for photographing. Rusted fence and trails embedded into the concrete road. There is a small parking spot at the beginning of hiking trail.
