    If you are driving towards Tampa and if you are lucky enough, you will catch a plane landing at TPA and flying low over the bridge.

    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.

    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.
