One of the iconic views of Tampa Bay. Traveling over the bridge at night is a joy, if you aren't driving. The lighting on the support stays is amazing. Hopefully you will get to go under it sometime on a cruise ship as well.

Really beautiful bridge and enjoyed stopping off on the way to Tampa and sitting on the rocks looking out at the water.

Beautiful at night. I like that you are able to see the Gulf of Mexico when you are on top and the city of St. Pete.

The first time I drove over this myself I had white knuckles once I got to the other side, but, I am now cured of my... More

With the sun making the water sparkle - what a beautiful ride across the bridge with water like glass on both sides.

Every time I've fished the Sunshine Skyway Bridge fishing piers, I come home with dinner - enough for our family of 6. This place is great as it has bathrooms, a bait shop with drinks, snacks, and coffee, is open 24hrs, and you can literally fish from your car. :) The price is very reasonable and gives you access to...

Beautiful bridge with amazing views.. All for $1.25! I love this bridge. Been crossing it since it was first built. It just keeps getting better with time. There's an awesome rest stop on the north end with nice, clean facilities. Great place to take pictures. I wish there was somewhere to stop on the bridge but thanks to it being... More

Talk about a great view. The Skyway Bridge is an amazing experience. Beautiful overlook of the bay. I definitely recommend it to anyone. Great way to enjoy the many beauties of Florida. It is a toll road so be prepared for a small fee but it's worth it.
