The first time we came down to Florida to visit relatives in Sarasota, we flew into Tampa International and crossed this bridge to get to our destination. What a way to go - the views both of the bridge and the vistas once you are upon it are spectacular! Having now moved here ourselves, we continue to enjoy the experience each time we travel up the coast.

I have often gone across this bridge as a passenger in a car or bus and it is very scary! the sides of the bridge are way too short! they need to be much , much higher and way more visible! also, the speed limit needs to be way slower and stricter to the speeders. so far, I have survived, but it s a very scary ride. the toll attendants are very kind and helpful. would rather take a ferry across than this bridge.

I love to drive across the Skyway Bridge. It is a great ride on a motorcycle and you get an awesome view.

Remember it can be closed due to high winds and it is a long way around through Tampa. That being said, the south skyway bridge rest area is THE most beautiful and relaxing rest area I have seen anywhere. It is right on the water with a view of Tampa Bay.

Make sure you know this bridges history so it doesn't get told to you while crossing it. Wicked ride
