This bridge is currently closed, and is being repaired by the Florida DOT. It is scheduled to reopen in September 2017.

In the Florida Keys, there is no name better known than Henry Flagler who built the world-famous Oversea Railway in the early 1900's. Called the "8th Wonder of the World", this amazing ribbon of steel and concrete forever changed the history of the Florida Keys.

Read about this tragedy. Great loss of soldier lives. Heroic effort by Earnest Hemingway to try to assist in rescuing lives. Massive hurricane killed many on the old bridge. There is a museum in Marathon regarding this tragedy.

As you drive west on the 7-mile bridge, you may notice the sun hitting the waters to your right in the best possible way to photograph. There is free parking at the end so that you can walk out onto the old bridge that is now a fishing pier. Sunsets are fantastic. You can also see many species of fish... More

It's just under a mile to walk along the path to see the end of the old seven mile bridge. You'll get some amazing photos and at no cost.

Great walking bridge, good place to go for a walk, relax and watch people fish. Very clean and well maintained, even with the amount of people fishing, it was obvious that the people that fish there keep the area clean.

We were able to only walk a little bit as some of it was closed. What a beautiful view, easy trail for everyone followed by a walk on the beach.

This attraction and parking stop is closed on the way down from Miami but you can still park and get off at the end of the bridge and walk a bit. The view is mostly water and traffic.

There is something about going over a bridge across the ocean. It goes on and on and your mind wanders how was this made? With ocean on both sides of you, your thoughts drift into many subjects, kinda theraputic. Then it ends and you are near another wonderful photo op spot called Bahia Honda State Park and the Old bridge... More
