Back in the glory days of 1913 there was a bridge between Miami and Miami Beach that you could safely walk on with out fear of being hit by the Bentley of NFL player. You might have had to dodge a few moguls in Model Ts though. The Collin Bridge was over 2 1/2 miles long and was torn down in 1925. Today, the Venetian Causeway follows a similar path. Previously Miami and Miami Beach were only connected by Ferry service. [via Wikipedia]
