Driving on the Skyway does give you a beautiful view of the bay. It's impressive to go that high on that bridge. The pier near is also nice to go to for fishing.

This bridge is a very elegant piece of engineering. We enjoyed the view from the bridge when drove back into Tampa. I later made some nice pictures of it from one of the fisherman's piers near Fort de Soto.

I have walked up to the Top of the Bridge several times. You would have a real Challenge in a Run ! This is a steep bridge. Drive or walk it First to make a decision on Running.
