Sunshine Skyway Bridge, Tampa

#2 of 214 in Things to do in Tampa
Sunshine Skyway Bridge, considered the "flag bridge" of Florida, stretches across Tampa Bay and features a cable-stayed main span. The original bridge was built in 1954, but construction on the current bridge began in 1982 and it was re-opened in 1987. Many visitors love crossing the bridge to take in views over the water. You must pay a small toll, but it's worth it to snap a few photos from this spot. You can stop at a nearby park on the St. Petersburg side of the bridge to rest, swim, or have a picnic.

  • It's a beautiful bridge and the view is spectacular. It's a toll bridge but a small price to pay for the view. I am not a fisherman, but the old bridge seems to bring those fish people.  more »
  • The Sunshine Skyway Bridge is a fun bridge to cross. Very cool to get to the center and pass by the spires.  more »
