A truly picturesque place. It was on our list of "musts" during our drive down Route 1. Well worth stopping to get some great pictures!

Such a great view and lovely place. Worth the time and cost of a rental car. We rode down from san franscico. It was amazing. Best part of the trip

It's normal bridge and nothing special. Don't know why people come here and waste their time. I didn't like this bridge at all. It's waste of time.

You have to see this bridge if you go near Big Sur by the Highway 1, In my opinion, the views are better if you come from the north. For example: You drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles.

You must stop and get a photo of this beautiful bridge. The photo of the bridge with the Big Sur Mountains and the water is the perfect picture.

I thought I would just drive over the bridge and continue on my merry way. Turns out this bridge is super cool when you take into account that it was built in 1932. Pictures don't do it justice. Easy pullouts before and after it. Take a few minutes and appreciate it......THEN continue on your way.

When driving the Pacific Coast Highway, one of the iconic views is from the historic Bixby Bridge built in 1932. There's no other way to go but across it, and once on the other side, stop at the pull-off and take some great photos. We saw one grey whale way out at sea and we more or less followed his... More

If you are driving on the PCH, make sure you stop at the bridge and admire the views and the classic design of this wonderful old bridge. I could have stayed all day but the wife was keen to see more sights. A must see
