We were staying in San Pedro and drove across the Vincent Thomas Bridge again several times. We like the views from the bridge area. They are slowly working on a replacement bridge.

We had the opportunity to cross the bridge several times going between LA and Long Beach. It is a great attraction and provides incredible views both east and west as well of the port facility. Take the time to traverse this bridge and you will...More

Maybe it's an illusion, but it looks like there's a sagging section on the west face near the left truss. If nothing else, looking at that bridge and the port operation, gives one the sense of it's strategic importance to the city and the nation.

Not sure how much more you can really say about it. You can see the city Skyline from it which I guess would be the highlight.

This is No.Big.Deal. It's just a bridge that saves people time. It's not iconic like the Golden Gate nor historic like the Brooklyn Bridge. JUST.A.BRIDGE.

I didn't plan on reviewing this, but saw a couple of reviews. I saw it from the port and the cruise ship. It is a massive span and appears to handle a high volume of vehicles. It should be a great place to view the...More

I used to cross it daily to and from work. I always love to see the harbor sites. I miss the bridge, back in the days when I could see it from my house. A nice landmark in San Pedro.
