This is not to miss when touring Tampa. The drive south through St. Petersburg and then over the series of bridges is very scenic. Make sure to stop at the various fishing piers and read the history of the spanish settlers.

Beautiful and peaceful drive. I love the view from driving from Tampa to Bradenton. Beware of no gas station for a long road, also told of $1.25

The bridge was interesting to drive over and offers some very scenic panoramas. The toll is just $1.25, so it is an inexpensive way to see the surrounding area.

The better parts are the fishing piers made out of the old bridge. There are piers on each end of the bridge with bait shops, food, picnic tables, and parking. We stopped and fished for 4-5 hours. We had a blast as we caught fish using rods and reels rented from the bait shop. The gentlemen were patient with our kids as they had to return to the shop when they lost their tackle in snags. We used shrimp and squid to cat 20-30 fish (groupers, snapper, snook, and Jack Cravelle). The kids delighted in every fish caught and trying to release them back into the water before the pelicans could eat the catch. We even had a dolphin swim up just before we left for the day.

Not much to say. Pretty cool bridge but not sure I'd drive out of my way to see it. Might have been more impressive at night when it is all lit up.
