    The premier bridge for travel between St Pete and Tampa. Constructed in 1920 when the "land" bridge that originally connected the 2 cities was deemed unsafe as it was made of twinkles.

    Just a side note ... this is Tampa Bay, not the Gulf of Mexico and definitely not the ocean.

    If you're headed north and going to Tampa International Airport, stay in the 2nd lane in from right side of bridge. This lane will go to the airport whereas the others will split off.
