Since living in Cleveland, I always wanted to see the "Guardians" up close. Back then they were so black from the steel mills below that most residence did not even notice that they were there. 39 years after moving to California, I put it on...More

I felt like I was in the movie scene from Never Ending Story. This bridge is just glorious. It is one of the most beautiful bridges I've ever seen. The view from here is also breathtaking. You will not be disappointed.

is one of those landmarks if you are touring through the city is worth driving over the bridge for the view of downtown and the pillars/statues that greet you at either end

What a terrific bridge to cross and view Cuyahoga River, the east and west Flats, the beautiful Terminal Tower, downtown Cleveland, the West Side Market, and so much more. The art deco statues on both ends representing transportation are gorgeous and amazing. I love Cleveland.

Walked across the bridge to see the guardians and to catch the Cleveland skyline. If you have the time, this is worth it. View is great and the guardians are very cool.

As we travelled around and over this bridge I was impressed by the view of the bridge and from the bridge. This is especially pretty to view at night from the areas around the bridge.
