Drove across the bridge again today, despite it being slightly overcast weather, still great views. Rest areas are really clean and it is good to see there are Security Guards around during the night

If your afraid of heights this is a good challenge. Very high bridge with somewhat steep declines. Very well lit and maintained. Excellent fishing piers and parking. Very helpful law officers keeping things safe. Cool at night.

Maybe it is the angle of ascent that seems to be 45 degrees, and maybe it is the fact that the ascent lasts so long that you never feel as if you are going to make it to the top, and maybe it is the fact that when you get to the top you feel as if you are up... More

It was $12.84 total for admission and 24hrs fishing license for two people. We spent most of the day. Plenty of parking, bait shop and clean restrooms. We packed a cooler and found a spot along the pier. Didn't catch much but small pin fish because it was windy and water was pretty murky. Great place to watch the sunset.

Have been across the bridge a few times. There is always something to see. Islands, ships, kite surfing. Unless it is foggy, you will have a nice trip.

Driving across this bridge was on my "Bucket List". At 67 yrs old, I took a deep breath. Low and behold..... I wasn't frightened one bit.....time went by quickly and I did it!

Even though this bridge has high suicide rates, you can't beat the view!! Enjoy this pic of a recent poker run as it passed under. Also a great spot to see kite surfers enjoying the sometimes breezy weather.

The view is extraordinary and this iconic structure floats over the scene. The design is functional, graceful, and beautiful. On a visit, if you're close it's well worth a visit.

We occasionally travel over this bridge and I love it every time. The view is so wonderful. I tell my husband to slow down so I can look around at the surrounding landscape. There is a fee to travel over the bridge. You can get off on the exit and fish or admire the view.
