Rickenbacker Causeway

This toll road traverses Biscayne Bay to connect Miami, Florida, with the barrier islands of Key Biscayne and Virginia Key.

The Rickenbacker Causeway is a toll road connecting mainland Miami to the barrier islands of Virginia Key and Key Biscayne. It spans 5 miles (8 kilometers) across Biscayne Bay. It is named after Eddie Rickenbacker, an American war hero from World War I.

The southbound destination winds through the heart of Key Biscayne along Crandon Boulevard. This raised boulevard continues another 5 miles (8 kilometers) until it ends in Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, near the historic Cape Florida lighthouse. Bill Baggs is frequently lauded as one of the top 10 beaches in the country. In addition to the lighthouse, it is a popular destination for boating, swimming, picnicking and sunbathing. 

Crandon Park is another favorite destination. Its facilities include a golf course, tennis center, marinas and pools. Time your visit to attend the annual Miami Masters competition. The area has a large expanse of oceanfront and numerous spots for picnicking and hiking.

The other southbound destination is Virginia Key. The Miami Seaquarium is one of the oldest oceanariums in America. Here, find marine mammals such as orcas and dolphins, sharks, fish, sea turtles, manatees and various other creatures. The Seaquarium is open daily and holds frequent presentations and shows. 

The area is also home to two prestigious schools that focus on marine studies: MAST Academy, a magnet school, and Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, a college within the University of Miami.

Vehicles traveling from Miami are charged a toll, while northbound traffic to Miami is granted free access to the bridge. Bike across the Rickenbacker Causeway, a very popular activity that will allow you to stop and look out over the waterway. Many people rent bikes in Miami and take them to the Keys for a day excursion. Whatever mode of transportation you choose, the Rickenbacker Causeway is an integral connection between some of South Florida’s finest destinations.
