The first steel bridge in Texas . When we went there's a couple taking pictures for their wedding. Lots of families come and relax in this beautiful bridge. There's also people swimming & fishing down the river.

Beautiful and historical bridge. Great view of the Guadalupe River. Only negative is some industrial buildings in the background. Easy to access off the highway. Noticed a venue below with setup for outdoor weddings. Great bridge for walking while enjoying the view.

One of my favorite places. It's a great view of the river and the fishermen below. It's a super spot for photos. Go early in the morning with your coffee and enjoy the sights and sounds of the river below.

We stopped by on our way to Gruene. It was a lovely spot to take pics with kids. We were even lucky to see a train pass by on the opposite bridge. The kids loved it.

The Faust Street Bridge is a great walking, photo and scenic destination. The location is easy to get to!

There is all kinds of history in... More

The bridge is very peaceful and romantic. There is lots of history in view as you stand on it. parking is at either end of the bridge. It dates back to the 1800's and as you stand on it you can just imagine a rider on a horse or a wagon crossing it.
