The Vincent Thomas Bridge is actually one spectacular bridge crossing the San Pedro Harbor into Terminal Island. This bridge is not famous but when you happen crossing it while a big-ish ship is passing underneath it....that's pretty cool!

Drive down 110 South. Venture away from LA.
This 1500 foot long suspension bridge has been dominating the skyline and aweing tourists and locals alike, since its creation in 1963. This is an awesome bridge and you should drive across it for a great view of the harbor and surrounding cities.

Derided as "the bridge to nowhere" while it was being built and during the initial years following its 1963 opening, the Vincent Thomas Bridge is now an important transportation link between the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro and the rail yards of East Los Angeles and the Inland Empire.
Visually appealing, the bridge is California's third longest suspension bridge. It replaced the ferries that connected San Pedro and Terminal Island. All of San Pedro's departing ferries and helicopters to Santa Catalina Island are located underneath the western part of the bridge at the Catalina Terminal (Berth 95).
