Not as famous, perhaps, as the Golden Gate Bridge
connecting the city with Marin County to the north, the double-decker San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge is no less impressive as an engineering feat. It's also just as lovely with its steel cable spun like a spider's web along its length. The bridge makes an especially beautiful sight at night when miles of lights outline its graceful shape. Another, even more impressive, achievement in the course of its history when it was repaired and reopened within a month after a part of the span tumbled as a result of the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake. The bridge underwent a seismic renovation in 2013, adding a brand new single-deck span east of Treasure Island.
