Awesome brigde

I feels like a ride in an amusement park, especially when you go up! The views are very nice on both sides! Both kids and adults liked it a lot.

This bridge is worth the $1.75 toll one way to drive over. If you time it right and see a cruise ship go under it is breathtaking. They only just miss it 20 feet clear one one we saw. You can stop on rest area each end to take phots and watch the fisherman or windsurfers and kite surfers.

You will enjoy the bridge between St. Pete and Bradenton, I-275, just keep your eyes on the road. Peripheral vision will do the sight-seeing. The price is right, $1.50 I think, I have a Sun Pass and it was $1.00 last time I used cash. Lots of places along the way to pull off for beaches and fishing. St. Pete... More

beautiful right over the bridge if you drive in the outside Lane you can see some water but I like the inside line because it is really high up Bridge but tourists love to see it and take pictures and sometimes you can see a cruise ship going underneath

As a local you travel this bridge a lot. It is visible from many points on the water. It can close during high winds and it does not have any stopping points once on the bridge. There are some good places to capture good pictures from either the North or South fishing piers however since it is so large it... More

This is a structure that really is beautiful in person during the day but even more beautiful at night. We had guests in the area and had forgotten what a beautiful site it is (we cross it daily). They were so taken with the beauty of it on a trip over it one night that they asked us to take... More

What a neat experience! I had seen this iconic bridge on TV many times but was finally able to experience it first hand. The views at night were stunning!

It's always fun to drive OVER the bridge, to see it far off in the distance and watch it get larger (and higher!) as you get closer. Even more fun was leaving Tampa on a cruise ship and going UNDER the bridge, hoping we would really clear!

It is fun to drive across this bridge. And we were very impressed by the piers that you can pull off on. What an excellent place for fishing for to have a picnic.
