We’re more into the hidden gems rather than the huge attractions. In researching our visit to San Diego, this became part of our list of things to visit. We enjoyed walking across the bridge and taking pictures. There is a little movement in the bridge,...More

Loved walking over this bridge. The location was a surprise. The houses around it were a nice walk about as well. You dont need long to visit but it simple an awe.

We found out about this bridge,from a lady who had crossed it, during a trip to Ireland. It is a unique suspension bridge in a nice residential area between the airport and the zoo. The bridge is over 100 years old and it has a...More

A quick little tucked away treasure. We took a little stroll over this bridge at 9:30pm. It was romantic and a little thrilling. The bridge sways back and forth as you walk. Definitely a date night contender!!

Stopped here for a quick visit after going to Balboa Park. Hard to believe this bridge is still standing after 100 years.

This bridge is sort of located near Balboa Park in a residential neighborhood. You wouldn't expect to see it and Im not sure I would walk there again, but it took me to a different part of town.

We had to use a Google Maps to get us there but was totally worth it. This magnificent bridge is a true suspension bridge in that it is held up by cables across a canyon. It’s quite an architecture wonder to behold. While those who...More

This bridge is located near Balboa Park, in a residential neighborhood. It's a unique sight and pretty cool to cross. While we were there, a jogger came along and created lots of sway, which was unnerving, but the bridge is secure. Take your time if...More

I've never seen this as a popular place to visit - part of the intrigue of it - but it's very interesting. It was built in 1912 and the craftsmanship is amazing, in and of itself. It's located fairly high in the San Diego hills...More
