    Bay Bridge highlights

    The most iconic part of this bridge is the East Span's tower, which reaches 525 feet at its highest point. The tower is bright white and is illuminated by lights at night, along with the surrounding suspension.

    When you traverse the Bay Bridge, you may want to consider taking the pedestrian path. It's located on the southern side of the bridge, so you'll have the best views of the bay. You can enjoy it at your own pace since there's plenty of room on the path for other pedestrians and cyclists to pass you.

    Good to know when visiting Bay Bridge

    Crossing the bridge by car rarely takes more than just a few minutes depending on traffic, but if you're looking to walk its entire length, be prepared for a bit of a journey. It generally takes about 30 to 40 minutes to traverse the bridge's entire length on foot.

    When you cross this bridge, you'll find yourself going to either San Francisco or Oakland depending on your starting point. Fortunately, you'll find plenty of destinations in either area to enjoy, like the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art on the west side and Fox Theatre on the east side.
