A Scenic Ride on the Iconic Bixby Bridge in Big Sur, USA

Bixby Bridge, Big Sur, California, USA. An arch bridge in Big Sur was opened in 1932 and basically was the main link between the area and the rest of the coast. Its gorgeous location promises an unforgettable ride: a 98 m (320 ft) deep abyss opens below the bridge, while a stunning view to the Ocean opens in front of it.

It is also one of the most photographed bridges on the Coast. Travelers very often stop at the viewpoints on the both sides of the bridge and snap a couple of shots.
