Beautiful old bridge

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.

$5 for the privilege of driving over this bridge on our way from Atlantic City to Philly... Till free if traveling in the opposite direction. Good skyline view of Philly from here.

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.

With the painting and repair of the bridge, it is gorgeous. The view from the bridge is breathtaking and can see the Camden Waterfront as you cross over. It does get congested so start early.
