“Beautiful View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

While my boyfriend and I took the bus to get to St. Johns (it was about an hour and 15 minute drive) it was totally worth it! We loved walking around the town and walking over this bridge was so much fun! Although if you are afraid of heights not sure if this would be ideal. It was sunny and clear out so you could see the city from the bridge! Not many tourists make it out this way since it is not an attraction but if you enjoy being outside and architecture definitely go!

“Walk around the base after you drive across”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

It's a good drive if you want to experience the city, and if you're into the architecture of the bridge then check out Cathedral Park. You can play Frisbee under the bridge and swim out to the concrete pier. It's fun to look up from the ground and see firsthand just how tall the bridge is.

“Beautiful bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

This bridge is beautiful. You can park below and walk up on it for a beautiful view. There is a park underneath with flowers. When we visited they were setting up for a wedding.

“Unique Bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

It's worth taking a drive from downtown Portland to drive or walk across this beautiful bridge. The neo-Gothic style is beautiful and evocative--whether its sunny or gray outside. Frequently photographed, this is a Portland icon.

“Architectural delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Seen a lot of bridges and this is amongst the best eye candy. Take a walk across. It's not only beautiful, but it is an experience to walk or bike across, as many of the Portland bridges are.
