Love crossing this bridge! Best if you have someone else with you to take some great pics. Nice to see the old bridge used as a fishing pier, too! We were able to see storms all around us while it was sunny on the bridge.

Ethereal and beautiful. I live in the Tampa Bay area and look forward to crossing the bridge whenever I can. The view of the bridge from far away and the view of the water while crossing the bridge can't be missed. It's fabulous every time.

The first time that we viewed the bridge was shortly after we purchased a motor home and at the beginning of a summer trip. Approaching the bridge is such a beautiful sight.

If your route takes you on the Sunshine Skyway bridge be sure you have your designated Instagram person ready to take pictures as you enter and exit the bridge that takes you to Tampa and St. Pete. You have the sail type wires at the peak of the bridge and amazing water views both coming and ascending the bridge. Be... More

The Sunshine Skyway bridge is a great place to take friends and family new to the Tampa Bay area. It provides a breathtaking view of the area, beautiful water of the bay and Gulf of Mexico. There is a toll, but it is worth it.

We got some awesome shots with those huge white fluffy clouds all around the bridge. Have the cameras ready.

We drove over this bridge several times while visiting Tampa. As far as bridges go, this is a really visually striking and unique bridge, especially for Florida. Would recommend seeing it if you're in the area but don't plan your day around it.

Not exactly an attraction you might think of, but its beautiful from far away and magnificent as you drive over the bridge, a true engineering marvel.
