The Rio Grande Gorge Bridge is an interesting place to visit in you are not afraid of heights and are into cool bridges. The view from the bride and in general the surrounding area in interesting: you only notice the gorge when you are almost at the bridge, otherwise the whole place seems to be an endless flat-land. There are parking options on both sides of the bride, and sidewalks as well so you can walk through and enjoy the view.
The parking is gravel spot on the side of the road. There is plenty of room. The ground is not super level but I saw several senior citizens managing just fine. The walk across the bridge is a few minutes. There is room for a stroller which would probably be best if you have a baby. There are several lookout points that give you a few more feet of room for posing and picture taking. The view is amazing and 100% shocking to find a gorge like that.
