Quince Street Bridge in San Diego

QuinceStreetBridge1

While spending the weekend with the kids in San Diego, I took them to see the historic Quince Street Bridge for the first time. I wanted the kids to experience some of the history of San Diego during our visit, and not just the beautiful beaches. The bridge was built in 1905 and is one of the last remaining trestle bridges in San Diego. Guests visiting the bridge can see panoramic views of San Diego while walking across the historic landmark.

At the top of the bridge is a little free public library where guests can “leave a book and take a book.” The bridge is HIGH! I am deathly afraid of heights and barely made it 1/2 across the bridge before panicking from being able to see the drop below through the cracks of the wood.

The bridge is wonderful for photographs and great for your children to see a beautiful historical landmark while in the San Diego area. Once we were done visiting the Quince Street Bridge, we drove a short distance to see the Spruce Street Suspension Bridge.
