Magazine Highlights Uniqueness of Ben Franklin Bridge Walkway
If you’re looking for something fun to do this spring, a trek across the Ben Franklin Bridge Pedestrian Walkway might satisfy that urge.
New Jersey Monthly magazine lists a walk across the historic bridge as a great way to enjoy the beauty and fun of all that the Garden State has to offer.
In their list of “Fun Things to Do Outside in New Jersey This Spring,” the “Benjamin Franklin Bridge Pedestrian Walkway offers a bird’s-eye view of the Delaware River and Camden and Philadelphia waterfronts.”
The author suggests bringing a pair of binoculars to view ship traffic and river landmarks, including the Betsy Ross Bridge.
A round-trip across the Pedestrian Walkway is about three miles that offers spectacular views of both the Philadelphia skyline, as well as the Delaware River.
At this time, the bridge’s North Pedestrian Walkway is open daily, while construction work on the bridge’s south suspension cables requires the closure of the South Walkway.
The walkway is open daily, weather permitting, from 6 a.m. - 8 p.m. October 1 - April 30 and 6 a.m. - 9 p.m. May 1 - September 30.
