“It's just a bridge, not an attraction”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Okay, this is ridiculous, this is a bridge to get from Niceville to Destin, it's not an attraction so pay attention to the car in front of you and get across it. Cross your fingers theres no accident or you'll be in for hours of fun sitting in your car.

Sure the view is pretty but you should be paying attention to the road which most dont and that's why there is traffic and accidents on this bridge. If you are coming from the east just cross 331 bridge for free and enjoy the few scenic 98 undeveloped views heading in to Destin.

“Pretty bridge drive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

It is just a bridge but it is long and the view is awesome if you love salt water! Costs $3.00 toll each way to cross.

“3 dollars! Is it worth it? maybe maybe not”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

You have a decision to make. Do I take the Mid Bay bridge? Do you have time to burn.. If so don't. If you don't have time to burn and you need to get to Destin in a flash I would suggest you pull $3.00 out and go on over the destine bridge. For $3.00 I really think they should give you something in addition to the drive over the bridge. Like a sticker or something. The reason being when you get to the other side your going to say wow I just blew $3.00 for a 3 minute bridge crossing. View was nice, but was it worth $3.00? Maybe Maybe Not.

“Shorter route to Destin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

Taking the Mid Bay Bridge will shorten your trip from I-10 to Destin. It will cost you tho. Well worth it to avoid traffic thru Ft Walton. Beautiful views of the bay but NO stopping on the bridge.

“Time saver”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

We are snowbirds who use the mid-bay bridge to get to/from Destin. With the opening of the new mid-bay connector we save a lot of time getting up to our favorite golf course, Blackstone. We got a Sunpass so our cost is less. It's the only way to go. On the new mid-bay connector there is no toll booth; your license plate is photographed and you're sent a bill, including a monthly administrative fee. Locals, as well as tourists, are complaining loudly (and understandably). While we would prefer toll-free highways, we are more than happy with the Sunpass feature and recommend it highly.
