As long as you don't want to try to travel across it during morning and evening rush hours, and choose to simply admire it, particularly from Cathedral Park below, you're bound to end up being glad you visited.

It's the perfect getaway without having to go to far from downtown Portland. There are good restaurants in the neighborhood like Gabagool. We had a very nice dinner there.

This magnificent San Fran bridge prototype has arches designed like cathedral windows, all focusing underneath toward a lovely walkway and park. Best views are at sunrise or dusk; absolutely magnificent!
