You see this bridge in just about every ad for the Big Sur area and for good reason--its gorgeous curves arching over the Bixby Creek is uniquely beautiful. Tip--a great place for a sunset photo is at a turnout on a hill just south of the Bridge. With luck the bridge will be brillliantly lit as the background gradually turns dark blue.

Our drive to Big Sur was spectacular. We stopped at Bixby Bridge and parked alongside the highway to take pictures. Be careful if you decide to park and walk. It's very steep. The bridge is historic and makes for beautiful pictures by itself or with family/friends posing with it in the backdrop. We can't wait to return to this area. It's incredibly beautiful.

We often drive our Goldwing motorcycle down the coast from Santa Cruz, CA, and the view of Bixby Bridge (a stopping area just before it) and the coast is beautiful. It is usually very windy there so be sure you have a sweatshirt or coat.

Interesting bridge and fun to imagine what it must have been like to engineer and construct it.
