“Sunshine Skyway Bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Traveling across this bridge is spectacular. It's a long long bridge and the views of Tampa/St. Petersburg are unique. There is a toll but it's nominal ($1.00 or possibly $1.25) and you get views you cannot see from anywhere else. This should be traversed at least once in your lifetime.

“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 .
