We like to go here to relax and we have also taken Miss Bettys tours to the bridge. It is a great tour and the bridge has a lot of history that is very interesting.

Took a tour here at night and it was right before it got dark when we got there and it was an amazing site to see. Unfortunately we didn't have any paranormal activity but the bridge was amazing!
