There’s something about bridges that captures the imagination. It’s probably the whole “connecting borders and ending separations thing”. The Skyway Bridge’s own arresting outline adds to this gravitas, thanks to it’s unusual shape and location. It’s frequently been called one the most beautiful bridges in America. At the peak of the bridge, whether fog, rain or shine, the spectacular views leave drivers alike slowing down so they can better appreciate it.

Grand and elegant, the bridge is extremely romantic during sunsets, or sunrises. It’s a popular place for marriage proposals. This beauty does have an ugly side to it though… the bridge has also been the location of hundreds of suicides. There was at least one mis-calculated stunt attempt in 1997 that led to disastrous injuries. Because of all this, and due to it’s role as a controlled access highway, no one is allowed to stop on the bridge. Any attempt to do so immediately brings the attention of a police despatch.
