Sunshine Skyway Bridge, Tampa

#3 of 218 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.

  • Beautiful views by day or night as we crossed over the Skyway Bridge. Currently doing some construction but no lanes closures or delays.  more »
  • Difficult to rate a bridge, but if you go by car, it is a lovely view and feeling to go over this!
