Check another one off the bucket list!

What a neat experience! I had seen this iconic bridge on TV many times but was finally able to experience it first hand. The views at night were stunning!

It's always fun to drive OVER the bridge, to see it far off in the distance and watch it get larger (and higher!) as you get closer. Even more fun was leaving Tampa on a cruise ship and going UNDER the bridge, hoping we would really clear!

It is fun to drive across this bridge. And we were very impressed by the piers that you can pull off on. What an excellent place for fishing for to have a picnic.

I always look forward to crossing the skyway on a clear day. From the top, one can see more than 30 miles up to downtown Tampa. The view at night is quite spectacular, too. If you are afraid of heights, however, you may get a little quizy. It's worth the attempt no matter, but if you can get someone else... More

The Sunshine Skyway Bridge is an incredible bridge that is huge! Especially when you are driving to the peak you feel as though you are driving over the water. It's a little bit scary at first because of how tall it is however once you get over that little bit of fear it's a smooth drive all the way.

There are fishing piers on each end of the bridge. Has a good day picnicking and fishing. Fun for the whole family.

We drive a couple of times a month over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge and are always amazed at the beauty of the bridge and the water. Day or night it is amazing. During the day we can see for miles from the bridge while at night it glows under the lights and stars. We were driving this past week and... More
