This is a must do for everyone at least once! Drive over and have lunch in Sarasota or turn around and go out to St. Pete Beach and have lunch there!

“It's a Tampa Bay landmark”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

When I think of the Tampa Bay area, I always think of the Skyway. I have had to commute over it loved being able to watch the sun come up over the Bay as I was going over the bridge. Sometimes I would stop at one of the rest areas and take pictures. It's pretty. For visitors, there is a plenty of fishing around the bridge and on the fishing piers. On the North end of the bridge, kite surfers are often seen doing tricks and jumps. Both the North and South rest areas give great views of the bridge and the surrounding bay. You may spot Osprey, Pelicans, or if you are lucky, Dolphins.

“Awesome!!!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

What a cool bridge. Fun to drive over. Fun to look out from. Just a great experience overall. We always drive our guests over the bridge so they can experience the long range views and the construction aspects of it

“beautiful sight”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

we drive over this bridge all the time when heading south. many use old bridge (hit by ship many years ago) for fishing but we just like the great height and how far you can see! take this route when you can. except when it's super windy!

“Nice Bridge - should take rest area exit for nice up close view”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

While this was only a bridge it was neat to drive over the bay so high in the air for a good view. However, if one wants a better view I would suggest taking the rest area exit after paying the toll so you can get a better view from the water level.
