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.

It's definitely worth the $2 toll just drive over and back! Our girls ♥ it! I wish we had had more time so we could have went fishing off the pier its neat to see part of the old Bridge collapsing at the end

Very long bridge over the bay. Nice views and a small park. Fishing from the pier is nice. Beautiful to view at night. A must see if in the area.

Beautiful View!! I love going over the Skyway when I'm not driving. ;-) It's a really pretty drive coming from Saint Pete, going to Bradenton. Love seeing all of the boats in the water. It's a really neat bridge.

Even thought I am a born and raised Floridian living in Palm Beach, FL, I had never been on this bridge! It was such a beautiful view and you felt like you were in the clouds! I suggest going here! West coast FL has a lot to offer and this was a nice surprise on the way to our destination.

If you are travelling from Sarasota area to Tampa, choose to take this way at least once! Great view from the bridge (and the rest of the road...)

This bridge is massive, and very interesting to see. One of the bigger bridges in the USA. There is a park to stop and fish, and enjoy the view.
