Was a very fascinated experience to cross the bridge and saw a beautiful Tampa bay from the skies and enjoy the residents fishing, the view, take pictures and know people in an secure environment.

This is a really beautiful bridge going over the Gulf and Tampa bay. It is a very nice drive. It is a toll road though so be prepared!

The new bridge really is so much more attractive and, we hope, more secure than a predecessor. We were on the spot doing a radio broadcast during a violent storm in 1990. A ship accidently hit a bridge pilon and a portion of the bridge collapsed. This new bridge is so much more attractive and apparently sturdy and is now... More

I had no idea that this bridge was here until we hit the road for Venice, Florida this morning. I was awed, a little nervous, but really enjoyed seeing all the wild birds either flying over head or nesting on about every other light fixture, the fishing piers, the boats, and the spectacular miles and miles of blue water surrounding...

The view from the bridge was wonderful. They also have parks and fishing at the bases of the old bridge.

Driving thru the sunshine bridge is a wonderful opportunity for taking pictures and enjoying the amazing view. It is better if you get there with someone else driving.

Huge, fascinating bridge. I had never seen a bridge like this tall before. We were driving through it and it was amazing! I don't get the people who say it freaks them out because of its height. If you are afraid of heights, don't go to this bridge, it is this easy...

This is a stunning view & the new piers allow you to fish. There is NO shade though, so bring your sunscreen!

An amazing piece of engineering; on first sight you will be in awe at its size and stunning views of the water on both sides. As you cross the bridge pelicans seem to glide along with you just a few feet from your car, they make an amazing sight. There is a toll to pay for each crossing of $1.25... More
