You need to drive this a number of times to take it all in - the Seven Mile Bridge element of the Overseas Highway, just after Marathon is fantastic. Get out of the car to walk a little way up the Old bridge to take it all in - it is worth it.

Very cool to walk the old bridge, great views with plenty of parking. Next time, I would like to bike it as we did not make it to the end before turning back.

Parking is a little crowded close to sunset, so get there early. But the views are quite nice and it's a lovely walk. We only walked about 1 mile, but we did measure the distance and it's not quite 7 miles. Liars. :)

We've been over and to the seven mile bridge many times over the years and it never gets old or boring. It's gorgeous to simply drive over, phenomenal for photo ops, fantastic for fishing and wonderful for walking!!! If ever in the Keys you must stop and take it in, even if you aren't driving far enough south to warrant... More

We had a great cycle over the seven mile bridge pedestrian side. Almost no effort out as we were wind pushed. Huge storks and seagulls hovered next to us every now and then. It was surprising how quiet it was. Didn't get to see Pigeon Key as the ramp down is closed for repairs but was still interesting peering down.... More

We drove through and stopped at this bridge on our way to Key West. It's an impressively long bridge and the minimalist view was quite peaceful. It's definitely worth revisiting for the scenery.

Great place to watch the sunset. Lots of parking and it is right across the street from the Sunset Grill. The Sunset Grill is also a great place to see the sunset. The kids can play in the pool and you can have a nice drink and meal.

This is really long bridge and I like part in middle that goes up and give you a real nice view. So much water to view and miles just almost float by. It makes you love the views, water and the clouds. Worth the drive.
