San Francisco Bay Bridge, San Francisco

4.3
Connecting San Francisco and Oakland, is one of the area's landmarks and one of the most recognizable bridges in the world. With its two double-deck spans, the total length of the bridge is 7.18 km (4.46 mi). The west span connects San Francisco and Yerba Buena Island, while the east span connects the island with Oakland. The west span went through a substantial seismic retrofit project, and the whole east span had to be replaced. The current east span is among the widest bridges on earth. The bridge provides excellent views of the city skyline. This is a toll bridge, and the fee depends on the day of the week and time of day.

  • Best is to see it on a cruise at night, it was so beautiful all lit up, lights dancing along the wires. It was almost magical.  more »

  • What can I say I love the Bay such a beautiful place and such rustic city.. beautiful ocean views... Fishing off shore is just right indeed .. grab a surfboard and hit the waves.... This is one of the best places to find a sand dollar there used to be a lot more but because The Travelers they're not as easy to find you can totally build a Sandcastle with the amount of sand dollars you can find....
  • Was just passing through, beautiful views of the city though.. but you have to admire and acknowledge the huge engineering feat.. the technological marvel that has gone into designing n building this bridge..(the Eastern end).. lessons learn from the past
  • I moved from the Bay Area 2 years ago after living there for 45 years coming from the Hawaiian Islands the bay area has been great to me I retired from one government job now I work for San Francisco Public Works San Francisco is a great place to be but it doesn't get any better then this to be able to cross the bridge at 4 15 in the morning any day of the week any weather it is strikingly beautiful I live in Yolo County now and I have to go to work early in the morning but that bridge ride is what I look forward to the most once I get down there you can make it from Yolo County to the Bay Bridge with inside an hour if leaving at the right time in the morning good luck folks my time all of you get up here I'll be retired again and won't have to be on 80 grade in that gridlock oops Here Comes The Wave
  • Most stunning & beautiful bridge connecting the cities of San Francisco & Oakland. The upper deck drive into SF offers the most impressive views and fantastic arrival high above the waters and in between the high rises. The other amazing view of the bridge and the city is from the ferry boat Oakland - San Francisco, especially around sunset.
  • This is quite a beautiful bridge to check out at night. Since they've outiftted the bridge with new lights, the bridge is now a mini art show that is sure to put you in a mini trance. It gets pretty busy around here on Saturday and Sunday mornings with the markets and what not but it's a great area to hang out and chill at night.
