What a bridge! Make sure to stop by the rest stop before you leave the UP. We took beautiful family pictures with clear water and bridge in the background. Best of all, it's FREE.

Great bridge to look at from the ferry or a boat tour or sunset cruise. When driving over, speed is limited to 45 and each direction has a paved lane and a grated lane. Easy to drive over, as there’s hardly an incline. The bridge...More
