The Remarkable Bridge In Southern California That Everyone Should Visit At Least Once
Love discovering and exploring Southern California’s unique architectural masterpieces? Then you’re going to be drawn to this magnificent pedestrian bridge in SoCal where no cars are allowed. Here’s a closer look at the Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge which is a joy to walk, stroll, or jog.
The Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge is located in downtown San Diego. You can experience it for yourself along Harbor Drive and Park Boulevard in America's Finest City.
To reach the Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge, just follow the stairs all the way to the top. If stairs are a challenge, you can also take an elevator.
Completed in 2011, this stunning bridge is one of San Diego's newest additions. With easy access to and from popular Petco Park, this is not only a beautiful bridge but it's also quite practical.
One of the most distinguishing features of this bridge is how it's constructed. You'll notice the bridge is suspended from a single towering pylon that's 131 feet tall. Now that's what we call engineering magic!
At 550 feet long, the Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge is perhaps one of the "longest self-anchored pedestrian bridges in the world."
If you're afraid of heights you may not want to look down. If you do muster up the courage to see what's happening below, you'll see six lanes of traffic speeding by. Aren't you glad you're up here instead?!
As much as we love experiencing this bridge in the daylight, the view from the Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge is especially spectacular at night when the city lights of downtown San Diego are all aglow.
No matter what time of day you experience the Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge, you'll find yourself in awe of its architectural beauty. It's just one of the many reasons we love exploring SoCal.
