Impressive bridge with great views of the city

The less famous bridge in San Fransisco it is none the less very impressive. It's longer than the Golden Gate Bridge and has amazing views of the city skyline as you cross it.

Beautiful at night because of its dancing lights. You can see the magnificent view from the bow and arrow statue where you will see the whole bridge

I would have to say that this bridge is so much prettier then the San Francisco bridge. It was gorgeous at night. A must see in the evening.

The bridge was gray. The bridge was steel (I guess). The bridge was long. The bridge was a bridge in SF.

You need a car to drive across it. In that case, from Oakland to San Francisco, you can enjoy a great view when the weather permits.

Wow! I finally make it to visit this most famous bridge that appeared in countless movies! Magnificent sight indeed. I feel so privileged to be able to jog on it. I feel safe when I saw the security guard patrolling the area. The view from the boat was delightful as well!

Bay Bridge can be viewed across from the Golden Gate Bridge but lives under the shadow of it more illustrious and neighbouring bridge. These days The Bay Bridge lights up at night and puts on a dazzling spectacle almost as if its making a rude gesture to the Golden Gate Bridge as it gets a little bit of the limelight.
