What a beautiful bridge!! Just keep maintaining it safely
and hopefully it doesn't sway back and forth like a swing. Nice view too!!

“Nice Skyway Bridge when you can go for fishing and watch Cruise Ships and boats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Best time to visit this bridge and fish nigh or day fishing is during fall, Winters, Springs. Summer months from May through mid September are actually hot for day fishing but sometime the weather is good during evening hours. If you are into fishing, I would recommend this Skyway Bridge. It is actually very very high and you could see the cruise ships leaving and coming to Tampa port from Gulf of Mexico.

You can also travel through the bridge from one end to another end and only pay $1.50 each way and if you have a Sun Pass it will cost you $1.25 to cross this bridge. The bridge usually closes during very breezy days/nights or very bad weather. This bridge is approximately 4.1 miles .

“AFRAID OF HEIGHTS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Have been across this most beautiful bridge but I am afraid of heights so sometimes I do not see whole lot, but there is an awesome view of the Gulf. Worth driving across.

“Nice View From The Top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The drive from St Petersburg across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge offers a great water view in all directions. You may even want to continue on to the outlet malls in Ellington for a day of shopping. Enjoy!
