our ship, the Carnival Paradise, passed under the bridge heading out to the Gulf for our cruise to Cuba. It was fun watching us pass under and seeing how close it looks, knowing it probably really isn't that close.

Wasn't sure what to expect BUT the journey over this 'wonder of the world' (at least it should be) was an amazing trip! Much like your first 'roller coaster ride' ... could wait to do it again!!

There is a great fishing driving bridge beside it and pulloffs on either end and both sides for kayaking and fishing. Super jealous of the cruise ships you can see from the bridge.

Always set the cruise control to see if it can maintain speed on the climb up this bridge. Still a little concerning given the history of the old bridge. Truly a engineering wonder

If you like to take interesting photos, the Bridge is a great subject especially shots taken from Fort Desoto park to catch the moon rising between the bridges towers

If looking to go south on the I-75 from TPA, Clearwater or points north or west, link on to the I-275 and take on this wonderful bridge and fantastic view of Tampa Bay. It is a spectacular experience and definitely one of my personal favorites!...More
