  • Iconic spot of Selma's history. Smaller than I expected. Only took a couple of minutes to cross. Great reminder of the important purpose it served in history. If you're in Selma its worth the trip dow...  more »

  • Walking across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma was the highlight of my visit. I walked back and forth several times. The feeling is very powerful just knowing that history was made here!

  • In addition to reading and watching documentaries on the Civil Rights era (we are in a new and continued era today), it is very beneficial to visit the sites where influential events occurred. When you visit The Bridge, be sure to stop by the local gift shops and museums in addition to walking across the bridge in solidarity with the foot soldiers that helped shape our lives today.
  • Incredible to see this in person. As I drove into town for the first time I got goosebumps as I recognized a town that I've seen pictures of in every US history textbook I've read through school. Well worth a day trip to see.
  • I've walked across this bridge literally hundreds (and I mean HUNDREDS) of times and anybody that knows me will tell you I'm not exaggerating in the least! It's nothing special to me, but maybe somebody that's not from Selma might get a kick out of it, with all it's substantial historical value.
  • This bridge is very exciting to see, the history that is deeply soiled in its concert. A bridge with so much history, before a movie. It's time for a name change
  • Historic. Nice views, easy to walk across. There's a parking area and shady park where you can leave your car.
