Capilano Suspension Bridge

Do you ever wake up feeling like Indiana Fucking Jones? Well grab your fedora and passport and drive to Vancouver's most gorgeous and beloved park. The park includes guided rainforest tours, a First Nations cultural center, and the "Treetops Adventure"—an Ewok-village-esque "trail" made up of wooden platforms and small suspension bridges that soar 100 feet up from the forest floor. The real Indiana Jones part, though, is the namesake—the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Built in 1889, it's been scaring the living bejesus out of people for more than a century. Stretching 450 feet across, and 230 feet above the Capilano River, this light, bouncy bridge will make your adrenaline flow. If you're scared of heights, you may break out in hives, pray to a false God, shake uncontrollably, and/or pee your pants a little like I did the first time I crossed it.

Agate Pass Bridge

Seventy-five feet high and 0.2 miles long, the Agate Pass Bridge is a cantilevered steel roadway built in 1950 to connect Bainbridge Island with the Suquamish reservation. Walking the bridge on a sunny day is glorious; on a gloomy, misty day, it's almost mythic. Agate Pass itself is a thin, deep, and fast waterway that used to be the site for the Suquamish's traditional winter village—now its beaches are an informal refuge for seals, herons, and high-school stoners. Some people jump off the bridge for thrills. They're usually okay, but a few have been airlifted out for back injuries. (Agate Pass Bridge, Highway 305, north of Bainbridge Island) BRENDAN KILEY

Fremont Bridge

The Fremont Bridge looks like a toy, with its cute little tower, and it's sitting in the shadow of the Aurora Bridge, which is more than five times as high and nearly twice as long. To really appreciate the Fremont Bridge, though, you have to see it from the water. Go rent an electric boat from the Electric Boat Company ( and putt on over. It's especially lovely during sunset, and unlike some other bridges in Seattle (ahem, Aurora), hundreds of people haven't committed suicide by jumping off it.

Skybridge from Nordstrom to Pacific Place

Somehow, some way, two upscale shopping centers joined their shiny hands in the realization that patrons should not have to cross the grimy streets like lowly pedestrians, but rather glide from one commerce palace to the next, IN THE AIR! Start in the downtown Nordstrom—a vertical, lavender-scented trend labyrinth with restrooms bigger than your entire apartment. Escalate to the fourth floor, where you'll find young-adult duds and more teal than you ever thought possible and BAM—there's a carpeted bridge in front of you! Take that bridge! Take it all the way into ANOTHER SHOPPING CENTER. You'll come out on the third floor of Pacific Place. Run back and forth between them all day!
