“The walk”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We took the shoreline walk under the bridge to the Coast Guard Station. Very scenic, though it appears the area is a living spot for homeless. We did not encounter anyone, just belongings.

“Beautiful Landmark”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

The Yaquina Bay Bridge is an incredible landmark and can be seen from either the north or south side of the bridge. If you enjoy engineering, are into bridges or just like scenic views, this bridge is worth checking out.

“high and mighty”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

What a landmark! This bridge is both exciting to look at and to travel across; mainly because it's only one skinny lane in each direction and it's SO high!

“Great to view, not so great to get stuck in traffic on”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

This bridge - with its wide expanse - is so cool to photograph. Best at sun rise and sunset. If you over think that Newport is in the Tsunamai zone, it can freak you out if you get stuck in traffic.

“My Oregon Coast favorite bridge”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

How do you explain an historic design like this one? Have taken pictures during every season, every kind of weather, and all times of the day, just trying to 'explain' its beauty through some perfect photo. Doesn't work. See it for yourself. (Oh...and don't miss what it looks like from underneath.)
