An aerial of the Sunshine Skyway, on the Gulf coast of Florida. This bridge spans Tampa Bay with a total length of 4.1 miles. It has been rated number 3 of the top 10 bridges in the world. Because of its height above the emerald green Gulf waters, length of continuous travel, location in "the south" and modern architectural design, it is a popular spot for filming automobile commercials.
