The Cabrillo Bridge in San Diego, California is a historic bridge providing pedestrian and light automotive access between Balboa Park and the Uptown area of San Diego. It was built for the 1915 Panama–California Exposition. The bridge was nominated for the National Register of Historic Places in 1976 and was named a Local Historic Civil Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Civil Engineers in 1986.
The Cabrillo Bridge is one of several access routes to the cluster of museums located at the historic "El Prado Complex" (the former 1915 Panama Exposition site), which is east of the bridge in the middle of Balboa Park and continuing to a point near the Bea Evenson Fountain (and former trolley stop) just west of Park Boulevard.

It's got a great view of the skyline. It's cool to catch a photo of a plane just as it goes by.

Built over 100 years ago,, this is San Diego's most beautiful bridge. See it from below as you head into downtown on the 163 or take a stroll across it as you enter into Balboa Park from Laurel St. Tip: for some beautiful picture taking opportunities, walk the Bridle trail (directly underneath the bridge) at night when the arches are lit up spectacularly.

Happy days are here again! Construction on the post-tension cables is over and this historical bridge is reopened for car and pedestrian traffic! If you peer over the south-facing side, you'll catch views of Coronado Bridge, the downtown skyline (El Cortez sign, new library dome!), and even folks with their bows and arrows in the archery range beneath you. This is my favorite entrance to take visitors through for the first time... and just a stunning, sight to walk along to catch the cool exhibits at the Museum of Man or an outdoor play at the Old Globe. Hello gorgeous background for a photo-op!
