  • My wife and i drove down the coast to celebrate our anniversary. We wanted to go to the Coronado bridge and made it our last event of the day. It was a cool experience to cross it and see the views along the way. Awesome skyline at night. We will be back.
  • Today was our 1st time passing by this bridge and fortunately, I wasn’t driving when we were going to Coronado Beach cause I’m so afraid of the heights. But the view and the breeze you get while you are driving by is just unforgettable. The lanes are kind of narrow and for me, I felt that you’re gonna hit the car next to you. Beautiful bridge...a total masterpiece! This is a must try...
