Spruce Street Footbridge

One thing we never get tired of in San Diego is the constant beauty of the landscape outside our homes. Most of the time all we have to do is sit out on the patio with a glass of wine and drink in the awesome beauty that is our hometown. Sometimes, however, we still need to venture away from the boundaries of our properties, just to remind ourselves there is more that we haven’t seen in a while. One of our favorite places to explore on a random Tuesday or a happy Saturday is the Spruce Street Suspension Footbridge, located off West Spruce and Front Street in San Diego.

The Treasured Secret of the Spruce Street Suspension Footbridge

The Spruce Street Footbridge San Diego is another of San Diego’s hidden treasures that you wouldn’t know about if you hadn’t heard about it from a local. Built in 1912, the bridge offers astonishing, and yet still tranquil views of the valley that spreads out below. Spanning one of the smaller canyons that our city is famous for, the simple beauty of wood and steel adds to its appeal, and because it’s not as well-known as some of San Diego’s other tourist attractions, it’s not uncommon to find yourself all alone on the bridge. Just wide enough for two people to walk side by side, it can be frightening for people who aren’t fond of heights—especially when the wind is blowing, and you can feel the bridge sway. The view of the canyon below, however, will take you past the fear as you soak in the tranquility and peace of the landscape surrounding you.

Stop for ice cream on your way to the bridge and enjoy a cool treat on a hot summer’s day or plan a family photo shoot for your annual Christmas card picture; the memories of visiting this peaceful spot will bring a smile to your face, no matter what time of year it is! If you’re planning a destination wedding, the Spruce Street Footbridge San Diego views will add a touch of romance to your pictures without taking away any of the happy couple’s shine. Parking on the streets surrounding is free, making this adventure one that fits into any budget, with or without ice cream!
