Very expensive, When they decided to build this bridge the locals in Niceville were excited. But now if they have the time they drive around it to save money.

Enjoy the water views of the bay as you cross the bridge to he best vacation of your life. Paying toll beats having to go through ft. Walton traffic to reach Destin.

While not the longest bridge I have ever been on still very exciting and enjoyable to look and drive over all that openness and water.

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.

As we were reluctantly leaving Destin at around 6:15 am, we were blessed with a beautiful sunrise looking to our right (East) over the bay. There is a $4 toll to cross the bridge, but seems to be a small price to pay since it...More

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
