St. John's is a cute little city, take a trip over this beautiful bridge and get some coffee. There's not much to do in the city but the bridge is the most beautiful in town and worth going to see and take photos!

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we drove the short distance out of Portland to see this bridge and were not disappointed. Very majestic bridge - be sure to swing down underneath.

A very nice bridge. Quite beautiful and a combination of beauty and utility not found in today's construction.

it was so pretty, lots of people walking across it. Worth a stop to take a picture of bridge. This is also in St Johns that has some interesting little shops.

The St John's Bridge is an beautifully designed bridge. Traffic and rush hours (both morning and evening) can be quite bad though. Time your trip for mid-day to avoid the traffic.

The size of this bridge is amazing! There is a park (Cathedral Park) underneath that allows you to play or have a picnic. I did feel this time around that I visited that the park seemed really dirty and run down. Still worth a visit if you are in the area. Driving on the bridge can be a little scary... More

This beautiful old bridge is a photographer's dream. Look for shots from below as well as while driving over (let someone else do the driving!). The neighborhood of St. John's is worth your time as well with good restaurants and unique shops.

The St. Johns Bridge is the most beautiful bridge in a city of bridges. Like it's cousin--the Golden Gate--this suspension bridge is it's own attraction. Driving into St John's from highway 30, on a clear day you can see Mt's St Helens, Adams, and Hood--truly a remarkable sight.

Whether walking or driving across this structure, fishing or picnicking underneath it or even seeing it on television (the purported base for the TV series "The Librarians"), the Saint Johns Bridge is a Portland favorite. Many take photos from the west end of the bridge and Mount Hood on nice days.

Built in 1927, this beautiful suspension bridge anchors the downstream end of Portland, connecting the neighborhood of St. Johns to Highway 30. With Forest Park as the backdrop, it provides great views of the distant downtown. Below it, named for its church-like arches, is Cathedral Park.
