I rented a bike and went up on the bridge and biked to the otherside. The bridge deliveries according to expectations, magnificient view, fantastic design, good exercise. Goes without saying, this is a must.

This is a bridge connecting the east to the west of the San Francisco Bay. You cannot see much from it and it does have traffic problems during morning and evening commutes. I recommend using this bridge during off hours.

The traffic going onto the bridge was long and congested. But the views is amazing! I was traveling to air port (didn't make it on time, missed my flight), need to allow 2-3 hours for the bridge.

This bridge was almost as interesting as its more famous neighbour, the Golden Gate Bridge. It spanned over an island and the traffic was heavy at most times. However, the view from the bridge was really great.

Everyone knows of the Golden Gate bridge but this one is just as impressive! Views of the city from both directions is wonderful and the view of the bay is great.

Marvel of Engineering...this is how you construct bridge, double decker each side having 6 lanes each side...clearing the traffic congestion and still improving on them....salute to the engineers and the traffic control there...working so hard.....it is worth traveling thru the bridge at least once in life.

Lucky enough to enjoy views of bridge without mist and clouds with a clear sky too good to see from any angle

This is larger than The Golden Gate and still a nice bridge just not the promotion. Still we snapped off a half dozen photos before we realized it wasn't the Golden Gate.

The Bay Bridge would be one of the most famous bridges in the USA if it weren't for the Golden Gate Bridge being so close by. Photos of the West Span from San Francisco area amazing no matter the angle. Park in Oakland and walk the East Span. You'll love the views and unique experience. In a couple years you'll... More

Just parallel to the beautiful golden gate bridge , is the san francisco bay bridge, another piece of icon. Be it day time or night time, always a beauty.
