We alweays take out-of-town company here. The bridge is interesting history; fun to walk (also walk the short trail along the river on the NY side) and of course eagle watching is always the highlight.

Like: Seeing Bald Eagles, hearing Nature's peace and quiet without so much human noise, and seeing plenty of live fish. Dislike: Amateur "catch and release" anglers being sloppy. Saw too many dead fish of "keeper" size and quality.

Must see National Park historical site. On the PA side you can also visit the Zane Grey Museum. The drive along the Scenic Byway down RT97 is well worth it alone.
