In any other city in the world, Bay Bridge would become the most iconic bridge of the city, but with a rival such as the Golden Gate Bridge, this title is impossible to reach. However, Bay Bridge is a great achievement and an important landmark in the city. The bridge is 7 kilometer or 4.5 mile long and it connects San Francisco with Oakland. When it opened in 1936, it won two titles! It was the longest bridge ever to be built and also the most expensive one. In 2013 Bay Bridge got back its world record when it remodeled to the worlds longest single tower suspension bridge.
