New Places to Bridge

1.  Spruce Street Suspension Bridge

Of all the footbridges found in Banker's Hill, the Spruce Street bridge is by far the most unique and the best. Why? Because it's a suspension bridge - the kind of bridge that sways with the weight of those crossing it. Built in 1912 and designed by Edwin Capps, this special bridge which spans Kate Sessions Canyon is one of those secrets that you just have to share after discovering it.

The only bridge of its type in San Diego County, this 375 foot steel suspension bridge is almost inconspicuous as you walk west along Spruce Street just west of First Avenue. As you start crossing, you realize the bridge actually bounces, then sways as you continue walking. It's a little scary, and way cool. A real treasure.
