We love driving over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. It is an awesome drive by day and a little spooky by night. Either way it is great, and the best way to go south from Tampa.

Passed over this twice on the way to/from Ellenton. A magnificent feat of engineering and fantastic views across the bay. It’s a bit hairy with the top down and you get the feeling of being on a rollercoaster. A must if you are in this...More

But then why not. Rebuilt so it's gotta be safer than older bridge's. Enjoy at sunset, its hard to not stare at the sky.

I wish I could enjoy it while driving but it freaked me out the first time. It does get easier the more you do it and it’s a beautiful sight while sailing under it.

This gorgeous span offers a fishing piers and rest areas to have a picnic, etc. The USCGC Blackthorn Memorial must be seen. Take a few minutes next time you go across to stop and take it all in.

An amazing bridge and the old bridge was open for fishing on both the Pinellas side and Hillsborough side. We tried both. Fishing and wind was better on the Hillsborough stretch. You meed to come at night, it it is magical

No. Bridge mainly for connecting St. Petersburg to I-75 north and south across Tampa Bay. I-4 goes between Tampa to Orlando I believe and no toll as far as I know.

The cash lane is the one place the traffic will back up often. If you get a SUNPASS, you drive through the quicker lanes and your pass is billed. I believe the toll is $1.25 each way, but I use a SUNPASS, so I haven't had to... More
