The Walnut street bridge is more than a route of transportation across water. Take a walk along the bridge and enjoy a sunset with beautiful views of the city. Great place for pics!

This bridge walk is awesome. Provides a panoramic view of the river and both sides of the city. There are benches along the way to sit and rest. List of friendly people walking, jogging or with there dogs. There was a guy playing a guitar when we walked across.
