The Gant Bridge is an gigantic suspension bridge, the largest bridge in the game, that connects San Fierro with Bayside. It is modeled after the real-life Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. It is built over an old fort on Battery Point, which is now the home of the Pleasure Domes, a nightclub owned by a NPC named Jizzy B. The Pleasure Domes is strikingly similar to the Castillo de San Joaquin (now called Fort Point) in San Francisco, although that is now a museum and not a nightclub. The Gant Bridge is home to a few Easter Eggs itself.
To view one of the Easter Eggs on the Gant Bridge, you will need either a helicopter, plane, or the Jetpack. On top of the southeastern pillar, you will find a sign that reads, “There are no easter eggs up here. Go away.” The Jetpack makes it the easiest way to get up there, though, since you have a lot more control over the other options. There is also a museum in San Fierro that centers around the Gant Bridge, which has a sign in front of it that contains some facts about it (based on the PS2 version).

Lastly, on the grounds at the Visitor Center (museum), is a slice of cable from the bridge, with some comments listed below it. These comments are just random things that don’t really say anything important.
