Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a very nice ride between the city and the beach. Helps if you are not driving and can enjoy a spectacular view of the city skyline or the lovely bay water with the islands. And there is the skyline for Miami Beach.

Great views of the Bay, Downtown, Miami Beach and Port Miami. One of the main routes into Miami Beach. Drive across and soak in the views.

The MacArthur Causeway is the main road linking the downtown area and the port of Miami to the South Beach area. Nice to see the houses and boats.

The MacArthur causeway bridge connects Miami and Miami Beach. It's a fastest way to reach either of them - crossing it many times I've never saw traffic jams on it.
Beside that, of tourist interest are views while driving it.
When heading to Miami Beach on your right side is the Dodge island where's the port of Miami. If it's a sailing day you'll see 5,6 mega cruisers docked there, what is an outstanding scene.
When driving to Miami you'll be rewarded with terrific Miami skyline panorama, as well the rich houses islands of Palm, Star and Hibiscus on your right.
The bridge is toll free.

This is the major route to Miami Beach, a very long bridge that will take you across the bay harbor and along the way you will enjoy some great views of the skylines of both cities.

There were some works done here late June/early July we were there but despite this, this bridge turned out to be our daily route as we visited everything interesting in Miami downtown from the locations on the little islands like Jungle island to the market near the shore where from we took our boat tours or going further south to visit the amazing Viscaya. Even going to the shopping centres located north or west, near the airport this bridge was the main place liaising Ocean Drive where we were staying to the other side, the older Miami.

We also used other bridge connecting the islands to the Miami itself, however this bridge has probably the most impressive views not only the Hibiscus or Star, Palm and Venitian islands but Dodge island and downtown Miami where it is most developed with very high towers. Also to one side you can see the impressive cruise ships about to go or having arrived from their weekly routine.

No toll to be paid here, unlike up north where the signs are so bad no wonder we 'landed' on a toll road entering Miami and now weeks later we are still waiting for their fine via the car rental plus probably something else to blame us for their tactics designed to take more money from tourists.... as they do not do this to the locals probably.

Not great and there was an accident on the bridge so lots of lengthy delays. You only have a few choices to get to the beaches . Nice houses on the islands off the side.

This nice-looking General Douglas MacArthur Causeway is one of several bridges that connect downtown Miami with the city of Miami Beach. It is a six-lane beam bridge crossing over the Biscayne Bay.

We stayed in Miami Beach, and crossed this 3.5 mile bridge span almost every day – either by the tour buses, the Duck boat, taxis or Uber – whenever we had to go to Miami. Some days we saw lines of massive Cruise Ships on one side, and Star Island, Palm Island and Hibiscus Island on the other side. The views of the Miami skyline along the Biscayne Bay are drop dead gorgeous – especially at sunset. So glad somebody else was driving so we could thoroughly enjoy those superb views.

One of our tour guides informed us that the underside of this bridge was dangerously corroded from years of salt spray from the jet skis. All the problem areas are now fixed, but the traffic was a nightmare while the fixing was taking place.

Go on it at least once to take in the scenery.
