Awesome views

The views of Tampa Bay are awesome going across this bridge. The drive is pleasant until you get into Tampa or St. Petersburg. Weekends are better.

I have driven over this bridge many times. As bridges go, it is a beauty but don't make a special trip.

This bridge is quite impressive. They have fishing piers at both ends of the bridge. While crossing it you will be at the highest point in Florida.

Crossing the bridge is breath taking on a sunny day. You can see for miles. Whether you cross over it at night or day it's a beautiful sight.

Unique bridge with a tragic and storied past. Google it, and then drive over the bridge, watching the smaller spans next to it and reflecting on the history of those old spans, which have been converted into piers and walkways.

This is one of the more beautiful bridges that I've crossed. Amazingly the price was quite cheap especially when compared to bridges in the north east. This bridge also has exits which allows you to get off and admire the scenery.

The view from the skyway never gets old. No matter what the weather is. I've seen cruise ships and tankers sailing through. I've seen some of the bluest water in the world. I've watched storms come in from the bay and have even seen a few waterspouts while crossing. It's a magnificent view 365 days a year.

The newish bridge is quite a marvel. I visited 35+ years ago right after the previous one had been damaged. I believe the remnants of that bridge are now being used as the adjacent fishing piers.

A fantastic piece of engineering with good views. There is a toll, which I believe is 1.25 each way, but we had a rental car with a prepaid pass.
