    PICTURESQUE RIDE
    Nice view from your car with no place to pull over, but you will enjoy the ride. The old bridge parallels on the western side. There is a tree named Fred that is growing on the old bridge closer to the south side of the span.

    Beautiful View
    It is great piece of history and nice views. However, there should be public restrooms. The 4.2 miles round trip is a beautiful walk but make sure you are prepared for the heat and have water, sun screen etc.

    Tour Pigeon Isle/Seven Mile Bridge
    We went on a Trolley tour of Marathon and the guide on that tour told us about the tour of the Seven Mile Bridge. So the next day we scheduled a tour of the Seven Mile Bridge and Pigeon Isle. CT our tour guide was amazing and very informative. We got to ride in a small train to Pigeon Isle and after her presentation we were able to walk around and take photos at our own pace.

    Interesting History
    This was a "bucket" list item for us. So thankful we finally drove the Florida Keys. We walked a short distance out on the Old Seven Mile Bridge and took several photos. Just learning the history and realizing that it was originally a railroad system was fascinating. It was interesting while driving the new Seven Mile Bridge to see the different styles of the base of the Old Seven Mile Bridge as well. The water is so beautiful and the fact you are traveling over the Gulf/Ocean made it even more interesting. We did not do the trolley tour that goes to Pigeon Key although that may have been very interesting. Our timing did not work out for it. The trolley tour stand is before you reach the Seven Mile bridge area - on the right as traveling south. This is definately worth stopping to walk out and see.

Beautiful photos and historical site. Not recommended for kids or teens (hence 4 stars) as it is a historical site and little to do, but walk or ride the bridge

I knew there was a long bridge to cross to get to Key West and this was it. It really is 7 miles long.

In some parts, you do get to see some lovely views of the ocean but it is a little bit of an eye saw, maybe paint the sides blue?

An amazing travel experience with beautiful sights. Highly recommend going during the day when the turquoise water is on full display.

This was a really cool experience walking over the bridge from Marathon. It gets very busy at sunset and parking is limited. The water is beautiful !

The journey through the Keys is just as incredible as being on the Keys. The view is breathtaking. The ocean, well, beyond majestic. Definitely worth it.

Three words; Fred The Tree! While traveling along the iconic US Route 1, I was so excited to see Fred. Everyone in the car was screaming and googling at him!

We visited the bridge while staying in Marathon. We actually ran to the bridge from out hotel. It is neat to look out over the water and walk down the bridge. It is worth a visit.
