Walk the bridge! It's a fun walk with great views. Join other dog walkers, joggers or just ppl watching. The bridge takes you from Camden to Philadelphia or Vice versa.

My husband and I decided on the spur of the moment to walk over it! An exceptionally easy climb and walk across and great views! Saw plenty of families and youngsters on bicycles. Definitely recommend it!

Benjamin Franklin Bridge is one of the oldest and best in country. Goes right from the center city to the city of Camden - on the other side of Delaware River. A grand structure! Especially well looking at dusk and at night.
