“its a bridge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

there's not much to say about the bridge besides well its a bridge. Now if you're talking about the new fishing piers made from the old bridge that's different. First you shouldn't have to pay to go on to something that should have been torn down. At least if you're Florida residents you shouldn't have to. Soon you've already paid for once. Otherwise its just a really tall bridge.

“Great heights”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Gorgeous view of the Tampa Bay area. Incomparable beauty on a sunny day; careful if the weather turns bad and the wind picks up. Travel the Skyway often and depending on the time of day and sun positions, a different experience. Not fishing fans so we haven't stopped yet at the old bridge piers, but one of these days...

“Spectacular”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Stop at the old bridge, two halves each now a fishing pier, get out and have a stroll.

Charges for to walk along fishing pier are a con, pay for one side, get into the other free if you turn up within the hour.

Good view of bridge though. Good example of use of reinforced concrete technology.

“Fun drive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Fun drive, shorter than we expected once you got there as it seems so grand in the distance. Make sure that you have a toll tag to drive around some areas near the bridge.

“Great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Awesome experience it seems as if you are climbing forever and once on the top the views around the area are outstanding. The tolls are nominal compared to England $ 1.25 for one trip.
