The Bixby Bridge, built in the 1930s, is a great place to stop for a family photo or just get out and stretch after a long drive. The bridge has a simple beauty, and the surrounding scenery is worth a photo or two as well.

Stopped at the look-out on the way to San Simeon. Really cool looking especially with all the fog hanging around. Worth the stop.

It is a great piece of architecture. Loved every bit of it. Great views. If near California than a must visit. It was quite windy & travellers are advised to have wind protection like jackets etc.

A big plus to a magnificent scenery of the pacific is that eye catching arch of the bridge. A must stop when you go to BiG sur.

The iconic Big Sur bridge that you see in photos and movies. Yup, it's pretty incredible. The definition of "scenic" and loaded with tourists during the day and early evening.

Go early, the cars mid day are parked everywhere and dangerous situations of people crossing streets zig zag to take selfies and group photos. Pull out to one of the vista points, equally as nice, and much safer for everyone
