Fastest way to Destin except on Saturday during summer. Just take longer at the tool booth with all of the tourist.

Made the mistake of taking this route to get from I-10W to Hwy 30A. $4 per axle is too much when you're pulling a trailer. Nothing about this bridge is either more scenic or that much faster to make it worth the cost.

I like going over this bridge because of the views of the island and the bay. Never know when you might see a dolphin jumping either. We did this time.

So much to see and this is a fun stretch to just go for a drive. Watch the water and sand or sight-see.

This is a great drive into Destin Florida. It is a Toll Road but well worth the $6.00 that you are charged. Try it....

We had a long 30 minute delay waiting to cross the bridge into Destin in July. It would appear to be a much faster process if they would replace the slow attendants by allowing you to pay by plate as they do earlier on this...More

Since all the rooms are Saturday to Saturday during the summer, be prepared for long waits to cross. Recommend Highway 331 insteasd

There are a couple of toll booths there, one with attendants, one without (that's the one where you get the plate toll in the mail.) I agree with you though, its a scam, but the State is the scammer! this is listed on... More
