Miami Vice wasn’t all exaggeration; drug-runners zipped under this bridge in power boats during a high speed chase with DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) agents on the day it reopened. The bridge crosses the Miami River, and cars pass under a 17ft bronze statue of a Tequesta warrior and his family, which sits perched atop the Pillar of History , a column that details the pre-European history of South Florida. Note that due to the aggressive traffic you’ll inevitably be driving in, it can be tough to appreciate the bridge from your car; you may want to walk here to get a sense of the sculptures.
