We went over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge when we went to Anna Maria Island last January 30, 2011. The bridge looked awesome from a distance and even more so when going over it. The bridge has a length of 29,040 ft. or 8.9 kilometers and connects St. Petersburg and Bradenton in Florida. It was completed in April 20, 1987 after the first bridge went down. Travel Channel rated the bridge as #3 in its list of the "Top 10 Bridges in the World".
