I have read some of the postings on Bridge day that are a few years old. We are planning to go this year with our 7 year old daughter for 2 nights. It is about a 5-6 hour drive for us. So, my question is, does one get to see enough and up close to make it worthwhile or is it that the crowds are so much that you don't really get a good look and feel for it? I was reading somewhere that between emergency vehicles blocking off half the bridgetand the platform there isn't much room for such large crowds. We would still enjoy the whole experience probably but if we don't get to see the jumpers and the colorful parachutes etc. then would feel like a waste of 6 hours drive to go all the way. As much details as possible about the best spots to see it from and ways to get there etc. would be helpful. We are staying at the Comfort Inn - about 6 miles away.
