No matter what time of day i was here, it was filled with cars. Ben Franklin Bridge offers amazing views of the downtown Philly area even if you are driving on it because you will end up in bumper to bumper traffic. It takes atleast 30 mins to navigate during rush hour. It is one of the nicer bridges though... More

This place you can walk and see a beautiful landscape. The Benjamin Franklin Bridge is a suspension bridge across the Delaware River connecting Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Camden, New Jersey.

We went to see the Adventure Aquarium in Camden and took this bridge over the Delaware River. It is free to drive to Camden, but you must pay to get out and back to Philly.

This bridge runs over the Delaware River from Camden New Jersey directly to downtown Philadelphia. This is an old Bridge with a lot of history.

This is a pretty awesome bridge from Philly to New Jersey. It's historic and iconic, so make a point to see it from a good vantage point or drive across it. It looks cool all lit up at night, too.

Traveled into and out of Philly via this bridge. It was nice and the traffic wasn't bad. Nice bridge to cross and good infrastructure. It's also very pretty when lit up at night.

The Benjamin Franklin Bridge runs over the Deleware River from Philly to near Camden, NJ. at Penn's Landing is where this picture of mine was taken. Nice area to walk around.
