The Bob Graham skyway bridge is a bridge that spans the mouth of Tampa Bay. It is noted as one of the largest cable stayed concrete bridge in the world. All,I know is it seems very steep while driving on this bridge. The car seems to always be climbing and the dash board faces the sky until you reach the... More

The bridge and view are beautiful, I would guess, because the day we were driving there we had a horrible weather, lots of rain and dark clouds so it obviously harmed the experience. If it's possible make sure you go there on a day with decent visibility.

The bridge has a gorgeous view. My boyfriend and I drove it on a rainy day and it was still just as beautiful!! On both ends of the bridge they have piers that you can drive on, because they're about a mile and a half long!! They offer a gorgeous view of the water. And before you get to the... More

This bridge will have no problem with ships sailing under it as it is extremely high. In fact if it is a windy day be prepared to have traffic closed because of potential dangers to drivers.

Very large, long suspension bridges represent the best of modern construction engineering, and the Sunshine Skyway is among the best of the best. Spanning the mouth of Tampa Bay, it is a magnificent statement about the modernity and progressiveness of the Tampa Bay area. If you have a choice between travelling down I-75 to the east of the bay and... More

Not good for you if you suffer from heights, but well worth the drive. There is a toll to cross the bridge

Not sure it's really an attraction or not, but it is big and beautiful to see. We crossed it several times recently and even saw a cruise ship going under it. There are rest areas to stop and picnic. There is also fishing piers that seem to be quite popular. Be aware there is a $1.25 toll to cross.
