The amazing Seven Mile Bridge is an unforgettable highlight of the trip. An engineering wonder, the Seven Mile spans 6.79 miles of open sea between Knights Key on the southern end of Marathon Key and Little Duck Key. The bridge with its dramatic ocean vistas has been featured in many television shows and action movies including 2 Fast 2 Furious, Bad Boys, and True Lies.
