Owner description: The largest single span suspension bridge in the world, at 1.8 miles, is brilliantly illuminated at night, with every single cable aglow.

Nothing earth-shattering, but it's a fun view of both Philly and Camden. When the weather is nice, it's a beautiful sunny walk. It's fun to sometimes see the Rutgers Camden athletic fields in use from the bridge. Also, it's fun to watch boats and cars go by.

Who in South Jersey doesn't travel this bridge. It's average for a bridge. Bad travel plan for South Jersey people on a rainy day when flooding occurs on SJ side. Walk or run bridge events are awesome fun

It was sunny and cold in January when I went for a walk around the bridge. The bridge is very scenic and there was a nice breeze on my face when I was walking.

My wife and I frequently walk the bridge for exercise but the real bonus is the beautiful view of center city Philadelphia. Pick a sunny day and walk the 4 mile roundtrip. You will enjoy it.

Go for a walk on this bridge and get the view of the city. Best enjoyed when the wind is calmer, on a sunny, warm day, or near sun-down from spring to fall!
