When driving near the Tampa area you must drive over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge and stop at one of the rest areas of either side. This is not as scary as the old metal bridge but is still a great sight. We stopped at one...More

Going up the first half of the bridge feels a bit like going up the first part of a roller coaster, where you can't really see beyond the apex. The views are nice and you'll see a lot of fishermen on the side...worth a joyride...More

Is this the bridge over troubled waters? Or, the troubled bridge over waters? I would say it depends..... What time of day are you traveling the How-weird Frankenstein bridge? Are you motoring with the 'going to work' or the 'going home' traffic? The proverbial 'rush...More

Not necessarily an attraction but useful for getting between st Pete and Bradenton. The old bridge was more interesting with its metal frame. This bridge is just an interstate bridge and you barely can tell you’re on a bridge.

A must to travel over to wonder at the Engineering feat & the fantastic views over Tampa bay. Stop at fishing piers to see the catches.

If you like to fish this is a great place! Day or night fishing is fun and there is a bait shop right there.

Gotta do it at least once. What a view. It closes during severe wind storms. Always a thrill. Can’t stop on the bridge. They have cameras. Enjoy the ride and view

We traveled across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge on our trip from Punta Gorda to North Redington Beach. It is always a gorgeous view of the St. Petersburg skyline.

No worries - just go the opposite way - go north on I-275 from St Pete beach, merge on to I-4 east in Tampa and then I-75 south. Then you can drive down toward Sarasota and connect west over toward it wherever you'd like... More
