Normally, I wouldn't review a bridge, why? However, the Mid-Bay Bridge kind of freaks me out a bit. First of all, it's a toll bridge. So, unless you are a local with a Sun Pass, be prepared to shell our $4. But the worst part...More

Fast way from I 10 to Destin. $4 each way but saves gas and avoids other routes with slow traffic and lots of red lights. Nice views for your passenger but keep your eyes on the road.

Do not visit during spring break! The roads are horrible, and there are way too many people. I was appalled by how long it took to drive less than 5 miles.

This is a great connection to Destin and Emerald Coast. However, avoid coming thru during High Season (March thru November) without first going to the powder room as you might be on line for a long time. Avoid the line by going on left lane...More

Watch out. If your GPS guides you here you will be stuck. It is a toll road. In fact TWO tolls. One of which you have to either have the Florida in car pass, or else have to pay the premium CASH price of $4.00....More

I am not sure why you would want to rate or even how you would rate a bridge. However this bridge is a Toll Bridge and if you have Sunpass you can go through the express Lane. The Road it self is in great shape...More
