I had to read some of the reviews to 'get' why folks were reviewing a highway! :-) This (toll) bridge is a commuter's dream as it is a section of I-275 linking Bradenton/Terra Ceia to the St. Pete/Clearwater/Tropicana Stadium area without circling around and through Tampa. To tourists not 'in the know', read up on why it was built and... More

Given the toll for this bridge is less than $1.50, it's a better value than most of the state's many toll roads. The architectural design of and views from this fairly unique bridge is well worth the passage. The view from its apex is pretty impressive as it's high enough to allow cruise ships to safety sail underneath.

Just hanging around the fishing piers enjoying the sun, and the water and the breeze or wind is a really nice feeling for a morning or an afternoon. The water and the salty atmosphere, no matter hot or humid, is enjoyable in that place.

We took the route over the bridge down to Anna Maria Island. The drive over the bridge is incredible and well worth doing even though you have to pay a small toll charge. There are fishing piers at each end of the bridge if you have the gear and fancy catching something for lunch or dinner - great views !!!

We stayed at Indian Rocks Beach and decided to drive south. This drive over the bridge is absolutely breathtaking! We were pleasantly surprised at how cheap this toll bridge was - $1.25. Worth it!

I make multiple trips to FL and keep a sun pass on windshield when traveling. You don't have to stop to pay tolls so zipping over the skyline bridge was easy and a beautiful sight.

Yes the bridge is beautiful and the views spectacular, but I recommend taking out of town visitors over the bridge at sunset. SPECTACULAR!

This was a nice drive to get to Mixon Fruit Farm. It was $1.25 each way with a little more to get to one of the fishing piers. We really enjoyed the drive although the speed limit worked out to 105 km/hr, so we couldn't really slow down to enjoy the view. There are a couple of opportunities to get... More
