1. Rickenbacker Causeway

Named for Eddie Rickenbacker, a World War I flying ace and aviation pioneer, the causeway opened in 1947, linking two barrier islands -- Virginia Key and the former coconut plantation of Key Biscayne -- to the mainland. Stretching 5.4 miles (8.7 kilometers), it offers spectacular skyline views of both Miami and Miami Beach across Biscayne Bay... More

6. Dinner Key Marina

If it's boats you want to photograph, you've ended up at the right place. The marina, with 582 slips, is Florida's largest wet slip marine facility.

But had you been here in the 30s and 40s, it would have been flying boats in your lens finder. Back then Dinner Key was headquarters of Pan Am's flying clipper fleet and one of the world's largest... More
