“Coolest bridge on the East Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

I have been over and under this bridge several times and it never seems to get old! I love how it looks in the distance and driving over it is fantastic, day or night! The views are wonderful and it is the highlight of my first night at sea when I cruise out of Tampa! Don't miss it!

“Take a moment to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Aside from connecting the southern tip of Pinellas County to the mainland south of Tampa, the bridge itself deserves a stop in one of the two fishing piers. There are places to take some scenic views of both Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. There is shipping traffic to watch. There is some fantastic fishing, attested by all those who will go and spend an hour -- or a day -- catching their favorite fish. The rest rooms are clean and well appointed. Access from either direction is easy. One could pack a picnic basket and make a day out of just going to the piers.

“what a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

If travelling though this bridge, ensure you are not the driver. Awesome view of the St Pete and Tampa Bay.

“An impressive bridge!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

There are places on both sides to check out the scenery. If you are in the area and want to do a scenic tour take the bridge and go sight seeing. 1.00 each way!
