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.

  • Its size was sight to behold from afar. Aircraft carrier to pass crossed by car, but the scale is breathtaking. Even the sea and the sky was beautiful.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Spectacular views of the ships and boats sailing below and of San Diego's skyline and Coronado Island. Opened my car window to feel and enjoy the sea breeze and it was magical. Amazing man made marvel.
  • Where is your walkway, bikeway, no shoulder. And yet people STILL find a way to jump off this bridge. Nice miami style lighting.
  • Beautiful view. If you visit San Diego this place have one of the best views of the city
