“Amazing bridge”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

I really think the Bay bridge gets underrated! The fews from Pier 14 and down where amazing and the new light feature in the evening is a definite must see!! Very curious to see how the new suspension bridge will progress.

“Gets left out”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

With the Godel Gate bridge at the other end of the bay, the Bay bridge is often over looked. Although not brightly colored, the bridge still makes for some great pictures, especially if you stop halfway across at treasure island and take pictures from the road way.

“not as famous as Golden Gate Bridge but it's good to take pictures!!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

It's an excellent place to take pictures when sunset. And it's not crowded so that you don't have to take time to photoshop the picture. Scenes here is awesome. For me it's even much better than Golden Gate Bridge.

“TAKE A SUNSET CRUISE TO SEE THE LIGHT SCULPTURE”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

What a fabulous way to end your day touring San Fran and Fisherman's Warf. The cruise I took takes you to the bridge to see the LED light sculpture and it is timed to get that after dark. Them made the whold bridge into a art display of LED lights that respond to wind, waves and water craft traffic.

“The size, the lights”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We were fortunate to see the Bay Bridge when it was lit up so beautifully. The bay lights are a true spectacle to watch.
