If you're not from the area this is a sight to see. I had watched video before our visit and had heard stories from others.

We drove over it on our way to Sanibel Island and it was quite spectacular , our driver was telling about the history of it and it was quite fascinating!

Sunshine Skyway Bridge passes over Tampa Bay. There is a long fishing pier on the west side and on the east a park with picnic tables, restrooms and fantastic views of the bridge. Although a lot of traffic pass over the bridge, the park has...More

I live 1000 miles from the bridge, but go over it every year when I am in the area. It goes up very high. Goes almost straight up and straight down. Have enjoyed driving over it for 45 years. Current cost is $1.50 per auto.

I'm old enough to remember the old Skyway before it collapsed, but the 'new' bridge is pretty cool. There is such a beautiful scene when you get to the top and can look to the horizon, no matter if you're going north or south. What...More

I saw this bridge coming up in the distance, and I thought I was going to be driving straight up vertically. It has that illusion, from a distance, of the first hill of a roller coaster. As you approach it, however, it’s barely noticeably a...More

If you're ever in Tampa, you have to drive over the bridge. the views are phenominal. We drove from St Pete to Tampa. I rarely get giddy about a road or a bridge, but honestly the view was breathtaking.
