try the pullovers at either side (Fishing pier areas etc) to get some different and nice views and photos. The bridge itself is even impressive at night- with the colored lights etc. Never get tired of it. There is a toll for crossing the bridge.

Beautiful bridge! Very very tall! The views from the bridge are spectacular! We love driving through here every time we visit any of the surrounding areas. Especially on a beautiful sunny day, the views of the ocean and everything in the area are stunning!

Love traveling over this amazing landmark. It's a modern engineering marvel that has inspired awe in me since I was very young.

We always take the Sunshine Skyway instead of I75. The view is fantastic, nice places to stop, unexpensive toll. Never had any problems with traffic jams, only when an accident occurs. Nice way to drive to the Bradenton/Sarasota area.

We drove over the bridge on our way from Fort Myers to Clearwater Beach. I was a little nervous but it ended up being an enjoyable drive. The views all around were awesome.

Knowing the faith of its predecessor, this bridge stands tall in Tampa Bay' s entrance. The rude across is trully a joy. Often, one can see dolphins playing in nearby waters. Definitely worth the drive.

We caught plenty of fish on the skyway bridge. This was an exciting experience for my family visiting from out of town. This is a must do for visitors.

This bridge is a beautiful way to see the gulf! There are fishing piers available from the old bridge and places to pull off to fish or just view the water.
