Such an amazing view!

We love this bridge! Going over it, fishing from the piers, but especially going under it on our way out to a cruise! The view is amazing.

I would not consider this an "attraction". However, it is a pretty impressive bridge. I would not go out of your way to see it, but if you are headed that way, it is a beautiful drive. Note: it is a toll bridge, so you have to pay to drive on it.

Living here, we take this bridge for granted most of the time. With visitors in town we drove over it near sunset so they could see the view of the area from a unique perspective. I enjoy driving over bridges and seeing the area from that vantage point, and this one doesn't disappoint. There is a toll. Also, if you... More

Everyone who visits this part of Florida should drive over the Skyway bridge! This is one of the most Magnificent structure's you will ever experience in your lifetime.The views are incredible, you can see Tampa on one side and St Petersburg on the other. An absolute MUST!! what an incredible piece of engineering.

I used to have to drive the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in the old days (before the new one was constructed), and it never ceased to amaze me just how stunning of a view one can enjoy from a man made structure. Just last weekend we drove from our home in Tampa over to the Bradenton Beach/Holmes Beach area to visit... More

Where I live we don't have oceans or even giant lakes so for us anything over the water is a blast. This bridge was so neat to drive over, and to see the old, time bridge next to it. Given this is a toll bridge the price was minimal compared to other parts of the is where fares can be... More

I decided to take this route (though longer) on our way back to Orlando after spending the memorial day weekend visiting Tampa and Clearwater area beaches. The views of the bridge from far and views from the bridge are really amazing and some cloudy weather adds a bit more flavor to it. MUST take this route if you are in... More

If you're family enjoys fishing or just spending time watching dad fish ( ;) ), this is the spot for you. Beautiful views too if you're not into fishing. Some of the most beautiful sunsets we've witnessed have been from the 'bridge'. Enjoy your visit by adding this to your list of 'must do', you won't be sorry.

Recently had the thrill of crossing Tampa Bay again on my favorite bridge. It's been awhile and I almost forgot how exciting just driving on this bridge can be. The views are amazing. Turquoise waters of the gulf and bay, Fort De Soto, St Petersburg skyline.. Spectacular! Still just $1.25 to cross. Highly recommended! If you have the time, check... More

For me it had a roller coaster in a car feeling. Because of the angle you go up and down. Incredible and spectacullar view
