Stop on the North side of the bridge to get your iconic photos. This is a spectacular old bridge from the 1930's. Be ready to search for a parking spot, this is a tourist destination.

We drove to this part of the highway just to see this bridge. It is a beautiful bridge. The scenery is lovely and the engineering amazing. We stopped at the view point on the North side and were able to get many pictures.

Check out this bridge if you are driving through Big Sur. There are viewpoints both before and after the bridge. Stop at both!

We visited Bixby Bridge a few weeks ago and as you know, the road (Hwy 1) down Big Sur is closed not far after the bridge. It's quite a drive (about an hour) from Carmel to Bixby Bridge, but we wanted to say we saw...More
