Loved going over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge on the way to St. Pete. The architecture of the bridge is absolutely beautiful.

This bridge is very beautiful and it appears to be a great spot for fishing. They do charge a toll which I didn't pay, but I believe it was like $4 a car, not too bad. The only thing I would warn about is if you visit this place during the HOT, HUMID FL summers, ensure you bring lots of... More

On our way to see the stadiums in St. Pete and Tampa, we decided to take a ride over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. The views going over the bridge are awesome, plus if you enjoy fishing, there are two fishing piers on each end of the bridge. It is a nice long ride across the bridge, with a nice upgrade... More

Had not been on this bridge since before it snapped. It's still a marvel. Since I'm a corp of engineer guy, I completely appreciate everything about it. A must see!

Going over that bridge reminds me why I love living in Florida. You can see as far as Tampa and St. Pete while heading north, and when headed south, Ellenton and Anna Maria Island are in view.
