In the North America, the USA and Mexico evenly split the share of the tallest bridges at three apiece.
The Mezcala Bridge, a cable-stayed bridge, stands tallest at 311m in North America and spans the Mezcala River in Mexico. Yet, the world-renowned Golden Gate Bridge at San Francisco stood out as the poster boy of bridges, and is described in Frommer's travel guide as "possibly the most beautiful, certainly the most photographed, bridge in the world." In 1937, the suspension bridge was both the longest and tallest bridge in the world with a main span of 1.28km and a height of 227m.
