  • The bridge is beautiful and a must for getting to the sandiest beaches. We loved getting our feet wet and feeling the sand in between our toes. My husband's first time!  more »
  • Drove across the bridge quite a few times when visiting San Diego. It's an awesome view from the water as well.  more »

  • Really neat experience to drive across the bridge and see San Diego from that unique angle. I really enjoyed the short travel across the bridge, the traffic was not bad at all. Another aspect of the bridge is it's visibility from everywhere in San Diego, I think it adds to the skyline and looks really neat.
  • People say the best things in life are free - this is certainly true when you cruise over the Coronado bridge. A heavenly feeling starts to come up when your convertible is breathing the air, your gaze flies across the ever-blue sky and your sense of distance and space gathers the vast amount of data when you look down the bridge. This construct of ingenuity couldn't be more impressive and resembles a short, but pleasant flight above San Diego. It doesn't matter if you want to impress your date or entertain family friends, a drive across this bridge will appeal to everyone. Connect this quick excursion with the nearby scenic drive and the gas used for this trip will, for the first time ever, be worth less than what you have experienced!
  • Took the trolley tour over a few times and got amazing views of the city. Neat history about the bridge as well. Definitely need to cross here and spend a day on Coronado
  • We had our Uber driver bring us here to see the lights of the bay. So beautiful and peaceful after dark. Take the ferry ride. You won't regret it!
  • It's my favorite bridge crossing in the whole wide world ! Beautiful...but hey ..keep your eyes on the road
