“Wow!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

This bridge connects Annamaria Island to the main land. It just rises up into the sky. Good fun to travel on

“Cool view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

Had the opportunity to use the bridge and the toll was worth the view. For me, it was interesting to see how the old bridge segments were still there and used for fishing/breakwater.

“Nice View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

It's always nice, driving across a bridge that is surrounded by water. The "SKYWAY" as us locals call it, is no exception. You just have to wonder how all those cables support all that?!! Things get a little tricky, when there's been rain...a little rain & you want to drive in the lane farthest from the edge by the water, because water splashes into that lane closest to the water.. Too much rain & you really don't want to be driving on that bridge, if at all possible. In hurrican type situations, the bridge will be closed. But on a sunny, clear day, it's a great scenic drive.

“I always love to drive across this bridge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

It is a beautiful drive. You can see downtown Tampa and most of Tampa Bay water area.

It is also a stark reminder that I was at the foot of the bridge (St. Pete side) the day the ship ran into it and most of the center section fell killing many people. That was many years ago but I remember it like it was yesterday.
