We traveled this bridge on our HD Touring bike during a day trip to St Pete and Clearwater. The views were fantastic.

“Great Place for dock fishing”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

The old causeway to the sides of the Skyway bridge have been preserved for those who want to fish, crab, or visit the small parks at the entrances. Some Vietnamese friends called us for a crabbing excursion. At a certain phase of the moon and tide, enormous numbers of crabs pass under the bridge going seaward. We found our nets a bit too short in the handle to reach down into the waters. This required a long handle extension. The skyway fishing pier was mobbed with Asian-Americans and old-time Floridians of all ethnic groups, happily spotting the swimming crabs with their flashlights and maneuvering their nets to catch them as they flashed by seaward. A fun time.

For anyone headed South from St. Pete, Clearwater, opr Tarpon Springs, the Skyway is the shortest way to Interstate 75 South. And for visitors coming from Tampa who've driven 75 up, the Skyway Bridge offers a different and refreshing view of the Tampa Bay area that might be worth a quick stop and a few photos.

“Take the scenic view into Tampa & St Pete”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

We love to go into Tampa from SW Florida via the Sunshine Skyway because the drive is so beautiful! Why spend time tied up in traffic looking at buildings when you can check out Tampa Bay and drive out over the water!

“Great view and shortcut to St. Pete from the south”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

It's just a bridge - not really anything to tell. Its beautiful and the views are wonderful. Stop and fish at the fishing pier (the old bridge). You may not catch much as the bait fish in the water take the bait on your hook, but its fun.
