Crossing this bridge is a cool architectural moment in and of itself. The Columbia River is majestic. Seeing this bridge from downtown Asotria is equally impressive.

This is worth the crossing into Washington! It is unique and beautiful, although, you get more out of it as the passenger of the vehicle. Maybe you can find a spot to switch drivers if you are just making the jaunt across and back to...More

Drove my cousin across the river and back on her first trip to Oregon so she could say she’d been to Washington. Worth the 15-20 minutes with good views driving both ways.

We took a tour that took us under the bridge and it was very interesting yet very awesome!! We then had a tour that took us over the bridge while the tour guide told the story of the area! Good Trip!!
