Arthur Ravenel Bridge Charleston S. C.
The Golden Gate bridge of the east, North America's longest cabled stayed bridge, the Arthur Ravenel in Charleston is a marvel. The new eight lane bridge replaces two obsolete bridges, the Grace Memorial built in 1929 and the Pearman, built in 1968. The almost 3 mile long bridge has a bicycle and walking path. The bottom pic shows the Grace Memorial on opening day in 1929. The bridge is a tourist attraction in of itself. A must see if you ever get a chance.
