You know what the problem with the Stone Arch Bridge is. It’s also the only place where you can’t see the Stone Arch Bridge. So my favorite place to go to admire the Stone Arch Bridge is at the Guthrie Theater on the cantilever balcony. From here, you can see the full span of the bridge. A bridge that is not only the second oldest on the entire span of the Mississippi, but also the only stone arch bridge on the Mississippi as well.
It is an amazing treat for us to have here in the Twin Cities, and it really can only be appreciated when you’re not on the bridge itself.
While you’re at the Guthrie to admire the Stone Arch Bridge, I also suggest you go underneath the balcony, because from underneath you can kind of see the guts of this balcony because the Guthrie Theater is not just for plays – the architecture itself is also meant to be experienced, and you can do so for free during the week.
