  • I'm so glad we have these lights and that the art installation will continue. The lights are peaceful, serene, mesmerizing, and a delightful character to the bridge and area in the evening.  more »
  • The light show provided by the bay bridge is a most beautiful experiences that you can do in the city. The best place to enjoy it, in my opinion, is Treasure Island, an island in the Bay in front of the town, towards which we organize various evening tours by bus, precisely because it is a beautiful vantage point from which to admire the skyline of Frisco and the bay bridge lit.
