San Diego, CA isn’t much of a walking city. Even is the city’s urban neighborhoods, getting from point A to point B in a straight line often is blocked by San Diego’s canyons and cut off streets from another. In pasts times, one solution was to bridge the neighborhoods together, by footbridges. The only way to come across these bridges is by living in the area, or if you are actively seeking them. These footbridges give a unique character to the neighborhoods.
