Recently took a cruise out of Port Tampa on the Rhapsody of the Seas. Had a late start due to weather which was perfect for an evening pass under my favorite bridge. It was absolutely amazing! So beautiful all lit up. The ship narrowly fit...More

If you like bridges and other accomplishments of civil engineering, this is a "must see" bridge. Even if you don't have to drive between St. Petersburg, FL and southern parts of Tampa, FL, going to see the bridge is an unforgettable experience. My husband and...More

The views are amazing, take the rest stop and see the amazing architecture of this artwork, you will not be tired of this drive if you stop open your eyes and take in everything you can.

Went over on a windy and rainy day. Pretty large bridge, I think everyone was down to 45 mph going over the top because of the weather. I'm sure on a sunny day the view would be great.

If you're going across the bay, you have to pay the $1.50 or drive miles out of your way. You also get a great view for your money.

There is a pier before you get to the bridge, but after the toll plaza. The last exit before the toll is for St Petersburg beach on the right. Echard College is also that exit. If you exit heading toward the beach and a... More
