Arizona: London Bridge
(This is easily the most famous bridge that is currently situated in Arizona, though I'll bet that a whole lot of people have absolutely no idea that it is there.)

California (other than Golden Gate): Coronado Bridge
Colorado: Royal Gorge Bridge

Florida: Sunshine Skyway Bridge

Maryland: Chesapeake Bay Bridge
Massachusetts: Old North Bridge

Michigan: Mackinac Bridge
New York (other than Brooklyn): George Washington (shared with New Jersey)
Rhode Island: Claiborne Pell (Newport) Bridge

Virginia: Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel
Washington: Tacoma-Narrows Bridge

For Connecticut, though I doubt it's the most famous one they have, this one kept coming to my mind:

Bridges don't kill people; people kill people.

Yeah, and it shakes when cars drive over it. It is a popular spot for pedestrians to park (on "land") and walk over for the view.

It has a narrow sidewalk and the speed limit is fairly high (I want to say 55mph). So then cars blast past you so close you can feel the wind off them and the whole thing feels like a ribbon. Good fun!

New Hampshire I will give this to one of the older covered bridges and this is probably up for debate, but i'll choose the stark covered bridge:

The newer bridges in Portsmouth are pretty fuggly

West Virginia, New River Gorge Bridge.


This past Saturday was the 39th Annual Bridge Day. The only day of the year that it's legal to BASE jump off of the bridge.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eazrkT3jYec First BASE jumps of 2018.

https://www.wvgazettemail.com/news/t...f532b2482.html It's only 876 feet down to the river...

If you get the chance to visit the New River Gorge Bridge, I highly recommend taking the Bridge Walk tour. https://bridgewalk.com/
