AAA Editor Notes

Sunshine Skyway connects Pinellas and Manatee counties across lower Tampa Bay. The 15-mile bridge is made up of three smaller bridges and a 4-mile concrete skyway and is a vital link of I-275. There are areas for fishing, picnicking and swimming off the roadway. The central section of the southbound span of the original bridge collapsed into the bay when a tanker hit one of the supports in 1980. The remaining spans became Skyway Fishing Piers State Park, offering more than 4 miles of fishing platform. Picnicking is permitted.
Toll $1.25. Fishing pier $4 (per private vehicle); $12 (RVs). Fishing and swimming fee additional $4; $2 (ages 6-12); $3 (observers).
Hours: Daily 24 hours.
