the bridge allows for a beautiful view of Tampa Bay. If your afraid of heights, close your eyes! We took it on our way to Ellenton mall. Made the trip worth while.

To cross this bridge in late afternoon and see all the kites flying in the wind, see cruise ships entering the bay and really see the bay as one of the most beautiful in the world, then you can say, this is the epitome.

I always enjoy crossing the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. There are a couple of places to stop on either side of the bridge for fishing and/or enjoying the view. Facilities are located at these stops as well.

Nice bridge architecture and view. Also, the access to Sarasota area and the nice beaches there made it a nice drive. From Tampa you can access Siesta Key, Longboat Key, Siesta Key, St Armand's Circle, using this bridge. Nice drive.

This is a landmark from St Pete to Bradenton. Picture ops on both ends and it is a marvel for all to see.

No better view than driving on that bridge on a gorgeous sunshiny day, and the water is crystal clear, and you can see all around you, downtown tampa, st. pete's, and more. It's an absolute visual experience.
