  • If you want to see San Diego from different point of view take a ride on this engineering marvel. Coronado bridge is an exhilarating ride that you can take with no toll charges. It leads you to one of the best beaches around and also a very cute and charming island that offers many food and shopping options.
  • Bridge offers great views into the port. Lots of different types of ships to see. Much taller than I realized. Traffic moved well and the bridge is long which definitely offers plenty of time to sight see.
