Compared to the older bridge that used to span the Indian River inlet, this is a masterpiece of construction. In addition to driving over it several times on a trip, we had some time to admire it from the Big Chill area, next to the...More

It is worth the short, leisurely drive to see the bridge in its colorful splendor at night. Walking the park and enjoying a beverage at The Chill make this a destination while in the area

If you are visiting the area, take the time to stop at the state park near the bridge and take a walk over it. It’s an iconic structure with placards at both ends explaining its history. Seeing it at night will amaze you as well.

This unique bridge, recently built, for $150 million, is a eye-opener day and night. At night the blue LEDs shine towards the heavens. During the day the bridge spans an interesting inlet, very active in season with all sorts of boating and fishing. You can...More
