I'm on a quest my kids to travel to all 50 states. We traveled through WV and needed a stop. I chose this bridge as our photo op Landmark. It's easy to get to off i70 and it was a quick stop.

We stayed overnight in wheeling on a road trip. Went to see the bridge at night when it was lit up and drove across it again in the morning. Worth seeing...especially if you are fascinated by bridges, engineering, etc. You can truly see it better...More

Took pictures from the amphitheater and drove across it. It was neat to learn about the National Road. We we to the visitors center for information and used Pokémon Go.

Great to see, especially at night when it is lit. Being born and raised in WV it is a must see. A most beautiful sight at night.
