Excursions from Tampa: by car over the Seven Mile Bridge
The famous Seven Mile Bridge south of Miami has featured in many well-known films, for instance, in the 1989 James Bond film "Licence to Kill" the villain Sanchez escapes his pursuers here. The almost 11-km-long bridge connects the islands of the Florida Keys and is part of the Overseas Highway in the Keys and the legendary US Route 1, which terminates in Key West. The view from the Seven Mile Bridge in a convertible is unique - to the left and right, the blue waters of the Gulf of Florida, interspersed with the many small islands of the Keys. An insider's tip on the route is the Bahia Honda Key State Park, whose extensive beaches invite you to bathe in beautiful surroundings. Booking a hire car in Tampa is also well worthwhile for water sports enthusiasts.
