San Diego - Coronado Bridge, San Diego

(4.4/5 based on 4,000+ reviews on the web)
Soak in sweeping views of the San Diego Bay while driving on . Serving as the main artery from San Diego to Coronado, the 3.41 km (2.12 mi) bridge stands 61m (200 ft) above the water. With 30 mission-arch shaped concrete piers jutting high out of the water, the bridge is one of the area’s most notable landmarks. Make your way across while enjoying views of the city’s coastline, Point Loma, and Coronado, and then head into town for lunch at the Coronado Hotel or to explore the eccentric mix of local shops. Catch the bus from San Diego to Coronado to avoid the hassle of parking.

  • Great view but be careful with the left lanes on both sides when merging. They alternate how many open lanes there are in each direction, and if you don't pay attention the center lane will direct you into the center divider. I was lucky I had a pocket of space to my right to avoid hitting the divider, but going 50-55mph can make it difficult to react in time when there's cars all around you.
  • Amazing sights.. just grab a coffee and till you finish it will go you an image you will remember for the rest of your life.
  • You get a great view of the city from here. You can see Tijuana lit up in the night. Sunset and sunrise are beautiful to watch from here. Can get crowded at times since its not a wide enough bridge.
  • If you've never been on the bridge I truly recommend it. It offers spectacular views of the bay.
  • Great view of San Diego skyline! Can't miss it when you come to town.
