Venetian Causeway, Miami

#251 of 352 in Things to do in Miami
The Venetian Causeway crosses Biscayne Bay between Miami on the mainland and Miami Beach on a barrier island in south Florida. The man-made Venetian Islands and non-bridge portions of the causeway were created by materials which came from the dredging of the bay. The Venetian Causeway follows the original route of the Collins Bridge, a wooden 2.5mi long structure built in 1913 by John S. Collins and Carl G. Fisher which opened up the barrier island for unprecedented growth and development.
The causeway has one toll plaza (administered by the Miami-Dade County Public Works department) on Biscayne Island, the westernmost Venetian Island. The toll for an automobile is $1.75 (US).
The causeway has two bascule bridges.
At the Downtown/Western Beginning of the causeway travelers are greeted by two columns vertically saying "VENETIAN WAY" along with a sign indicating that there is a weight limit.
At the South Beach/Eastern Terminus, drivers must choose whether to go north onto Dade Boulevard or eastbound onto 17th Street to Ocean Drive, Collins Ave/A1A, Lincoln Road, City Hall, The Convention Center, Jackie Gleason Theater and the beach.

  • Rent some bikes and cycle over the Causeway. Busy spot with a lot of very expensive houses. Recommended  more »
  • It's an alternate route from who goes from Biscayne Boulevard to Miami Beach. It's no big deal and you necessarily have to pay toll with the Sunpass. If you don't have that pass, you'll pay a fine.

  • The Venetian Causeway connects several artificial islands and ultimately Miami with Miami Beach. There is a bike lane and on the left and right there is a lot to see.

  • Safe to walk, ride your bike. Beautiful views.
  • Very sad to see the bridge all dirty from people fishing. A beautiful attraction for both tourists and resident being ruined by a group of selfish careless people. It is forbidden to fish on the bridge but they don't care and it seems that the enforcement is insufficient.
  • I love this place.
  • This is a beautiful causeway to bike, walk or run. There is a dedicated bike lane painted green so it’s safer than other places in Miami to bike. Driving over is a couple dollar toll. Beautiful views of downtown Miami and Miami Beach
  • Beautiful scenic and alternative route between south beach and Downtown Miami.
