Although this isn't a traditional attraction, it's the only way you're going to get to Key West, and it's also one of the wonders of Florida. While it falls a bit short of seven miles, this amazing span bridges the Middle and Lower Keys and has nearly 40 expansion joints. As you cross, with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, you can see the Old Seven Mile Bridge, now on the National Register of Historic Places.
Beautiful views of the water and sunset. We stayed in Marathon and went to the bridge twice. The first afternoon saw lots of sea life from the bridge...shark, rays, and sea turtles. The second time, the water was rough so we didn't see any sea creatures.
