This is an amazing bridge to drive on. Water everywhere and the bridge is so beautifully constructed. Great photo opportunity.

We were traveling from Celebration, Florida to Wesley Chapel, then on down through Tampa, through St. Petersburg, and to our amazement came upon the Sunshine Skyway. We stopped at a roadside area before driving over it, to take some pictures. For a person who don't like heights or crossing bridges, this was an experience. It is such a uniquely constructed...

Only disappointment is that it does not have a pedestrian walk....how amazing would that be?! Seems like they could've planned for that in the design. Best of both worlds, you know.

Too bad you have to keep up with traffic, would be a nice 30 mph bridge so you could relax and enjoy the view

The journey over the sky bridge into Tampa will undoubtedly be one of your trips first highlights. The scenic overview captures the gulf;s calm tropical waters before entering the city's modern metropolitan area. But for the drivers who plan on doing additional intercity driving be aware of the tricky exit signs as one wrong turn on the 275 can lead... More

After driving up the north end of the bridge we decided to stop and take a look. Beautiful view. The sun shining on the bridge and we could see all the way to the Tampa skyline.

i would have liked to photograph this bridge, but I didn't see an opportune locations givens that I was in a car going from Tampa to Sarasota. I would not go out of my way to see the bridge.

Not much to say here. It's a neat and large bridge. As such, the attraction value is small. But, if you're heading out of Tampa. headed south to Sarasota or elsewhere, it's a scenic drive.

I just love driving across this bridge. I love bridges and this one is just awesome. At some points you feel almost like you are driving on the surface of the water and it's length is just incredible. Feel like stopping, no problem. There are fishing piers with exits on both the south and northbound sides of the bridge. The... More
