“It is a bridge....but the view of it from Casco or Amador is beautiful at night”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Really it is just a bridge but the veiw of it at night with the lights on it is beautiful. When we drove over it I was not doing a lot of looking around but I can imagine the views from the bridge are good.

“Great Views.”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

The bridge itself is showing its age. Built in the late 1950's however the vistas are excellent.
On the PAcific side you can view the ships awaiting transit through the Canal and the Panama City yacht club right below the bridge.And the other side you can look miles up the Canal and vaguely see the other bridge as well. Have a camera ready,because you will get some cool pixs!

“Great Canal Views”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Be sure to time your visit correctly. Go out of city in morning to avoid the traffic crush. Stop on north side of bridge - all taxis know where; and soak in the expansive views. Kodak moments await.
