  • Our day was a little hazy so we couldn't see as far as is normal, however, it was still a very neat experience. We'd seen the bridge before but it was off season then. We were excited to finally get t...  more »

  • A few technical facilities will be presented as well. With parking and bathroom, friendly staff, and disabled to the tip. Anyone can pull out his experience to interests. We have enjoyed the view and have had no time unfortunately, without gold, to visit the Fort Knox.

  • A very nice bridge that offers amazing views at 420 feet in the air. Fun fact, it is the highest bridge observatory in the western hemisphere. Be sure to visit Fort Knox as well!
  • This bridge is super-cool. A new replacement for an older bridge that has since been removed, the exhibits on the grounds tell the story of the old bridge and the new, and there are remnants of the old bridge to see parts of the engineering of the time. Then the finale -- go up in the tower of the bridge (one of only a few in the world where you can do this) -- a fantastic view, even on a rainy day, of both the bridge and the way it is built, as well as the beautiful surrounding area and river. If you're in the area, you'd be crazy not to stop by.
  • What a beautiful bridge with the observatory. It's quite unsuspected as you approach it on US Hwy 1, you have to pull over to appreciate the spectacular view that it presents.
  • Between it and the fort you could spend an entire day here. Makes a wonderful stop on the way to wherever you're traveling for the day--a gorgeous place to stretch your legs.
  • Not long to drive across but a great place to visit. Views from the top are amazing. Wheelchair accessible.
