    I highly recommend it if you need to cross the Delaware river and don't want to swim.

    Do not turn the wrong way and take this bridge by accident. You have to pay $5 to get back across. Go figure, you have to pay to leave Jersey.

    The previous comment was wrong. Your not paying $5 to get back to Philly. Your paying $5 to get out of New Jersey!!!'

    If you have the misfortune of driving (as opposed to taking PATCO), remember that there is no eastbound toll.

    Check out tent village before you hit the bridge. Someone should document daily life there as a socio/economic documentary.

    You can actually walk, bike or jog across the 1,750-foot blue bridge on one of two walkways for pedestrians, which afford one of the best views of the city, night or day.

    Built in 1773, City Tavern is one of America's oldest bars. In 1789, George Washington celebrated here with 250 "bluebloods" prior to his inauguration in New York City in an epic evening of imbibing.

    Bike across with traffic because you have to catch a bus in camden and don't have time to see if the other ped bridge is also closed. Actually, don't do that.
