REVIEWS OF Edmund Pettus Bridge IN Alabama

Kamaye Wint-Pardo

Hard to rate a bridge since you're really just driving over it, but the sign was large & clear. Such a significant part of our history & definitely felt a sense of pride driving past it after just leaving the Selma Historic site. Every African American driving through Alabama should make the effort to visit to support what our people did to bring about change & so many of the freedoms we enjoy today.

Sarina Nickerson-Roher

A must see part of American History. A huge part of the Civil Rights Movement. Make sure to stop at end of bridge to see & read plaques.

nicholas guthrie

Great learning experience for my children

Josh Goralski

A must see site for its history. There is a great little museum there too.

Barbara D Jones

Walking this bridge changed me. Despite the challenges related to its name, there is significance in remembering that we benefitted from those who died walking, standing, and that we would have freedom today. It you have thought about it soon as they may be changing the name.

Katilyn Almeida

A place of historical significance and it's biking and walking friendly.

DJ Mbroidery

If you want to teach your children about some history this is a place you must visit. I enjoy going here as often as possible. Just knowing the history it does something to you. The struggles that our people went through for us

Josephone Blair

Great in historical value! But needs more stores and places to eat at affordable prices. This place is dead!

Jenessa Scott

Driving by to give the kids some history. We had no idea their would be a very kind gentleman to explain how that very important day took place. He had an Uncle who marched. Right before the bridge he has a memorial Park, where he is the care taker. Definitely recommend everyone to stop.

Rhys Roberts

It is hard to stress the importance and significance of this place. We symbolically walked across the bridge from Selma to the memorial. Walking in the footsteps of those brave people was quite an experience. We were also luck enough and …

Jazz in the park was the highlight of the year.

David Archer

Great history. We got to meet someone from the movie who also participated in the march in 1965. He sells t- shirts and posters next to the monument as you enter Selma.

Sherri Jamison

I walked across the bridge so much history we went on a sunday everything was closed so we did not get to the other Historic places

Emily Griffith

So meaningful to visit such a rich historic site and walk the same way so many brave people walked before me.

Jordan Guyton

Historic moment in history that many have forgotten, never learned, or even worse dont care about. Made this detour on my way towards the gulf coast to visit this historic moment in history. It's an easy walk to do the entire bridge which is less that a mile round trip. Free parking on the street near the bridge.

Kim Hilleary

Very sad, but interesting place. There's a gentleman there to tell about what happened there with the slaves. Very knowledgeable and friendly.

G Givance

First time there. Wonderful to see some History

Jonathan Tennis

Tough to put into words the feelings of walking in those footsteps. Such an important & historic part of the Civil Rights movement.

Fat-N Happy

This walk comes with an aura of past struggles. A very nice remembrance of Bloody Sunday with memorials. My wife put on U2 before we arrived. Got us in a frame of mind. Sunset visit for us. Shops were closed and it was quiet.

Renarda White

Nice and it's a magical place

Warrdean Davis

My love take me out for my birthday

C Akonful

Great historic secred ground but torn is very desolate and lacks any growth which is so so sad. Worn down town that is very abandoned.

Tiffnie Jackson

A significant location in U.S. history. We must NEVER forget the price paid by those who came before us! Those of you who were on that bridge on March 7, 1965...THANK YOU!!!!

Jackie Mixon-Johnson

So touching to see a historic site!

Lumenaria 1821

There is a lovely little memorial park on the side of the bridge. Visit the voting rights museum across the street

David Aikens

Love to have been there.!

Gwen Reddick

Just to be able to see for myself how far the march was for them to cross that bridge ...

Carol HodgeArmstrong

Was very happy to be there needed to see it for myself was on my bucket list

Stephanie Barrett

The sight of the bridge as I came down the street was truly an emotional experience. I was not expecting that.

Ōnesimus Sanchez

My freedom cost the Blood of my Savior most importantly, but also, the blood of Resolute Civilians and our Courageous Service Men & Women who daily fight for you and I to have a life of basic Human Rights and Dignities. We take our freedoms for granted & this was a vividly sobering reminder that Freedom is not Free!

don ventura

If this bridge could talk!! But the interpretive center at the foot of the bridge can! As well as the one midway between Selma and Montgomery! All fabulous stops!!

Vue Boutique

Well worth the drive. You can feel the presence of our ancestors there. Don't take things for granted. Selma appears to be haunted from those events. There is nothing else to see.


This is a historic site. Beautiful Monuments are erected in commemoration of bloody Sunday. If you are into black history or educating you children this should be on your bucket list.

Slyvester Pullom

Because Selma is my hometown that's why I love the Elvis Pettus Bridge

Gabe Jr Lons

Bridge didn't collapse. Historic place.

Jacqueline Davis

Everyone should visit who believes in equality and KEEPING AMERICA GREAT!!!!

Jim Johnson

History! Wow. Town is small. 1 or 2 days is plenty....the people downtown were great and very friendly

Stephen Horton

The bridge was a positive way to relive history.

Victoria victorious

Beautiful historical destination.....makes Selma beautiful overlooking a large body of water and boats and people fishing....beautiful scenery


I could only imagine the spirit of our people on that day. Tears flowed from my eyes as I walked across the Bridge.

Blakes Makes

It's a nice hangout or fishing spot underneath not to mention the only complaint is that it's not on the best side of town but it never seems to stop the tourists soo....

It was a great experience to actually see the bridge that African Americans walked on to be able to vote and they did not give up on what they believe in
