“Always loved traversing this bridge....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Famous, gorgeous bridge heading into/out of the St Pete/Tampa area, and connecting the area with the south (Bradenton, Ellenton and Sarasota and beyond). I would also take I-75 and rarely take I-275 which is what this lies on, so it was always a treat to go this route.

This bridge has been in numerous big budget films, is apparently the second most 'jumped off/suicide attempt' bridge after the Golden Gate, and is truly stunning.

They have subsidiary fishing piers on both sides. I agree it is too pretty a bridge to appreciate when driving over, then again what else is it for?

There is a toll fee, and there is NOWHERE to turn around. It warns you, but unless you plan on going over and not turning round for a while, dont bother heading that way.

It is always a treat going over the beautiful water....
I always think about the bridge's tragedy though....

“What a VIEW!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

We cross this bridge to and from Church twice a week and the view from the top never gets boring!

Interesting Sailboat-type structures add to the beauty of this interesting landmark.
