My son and 16 yo Grandson walked the Bridge between Alex Bay and Wellsely Island. They found it great fun and better than a midway ride,

The US and Canadian spans were coordinated to a similar design that retains it's early C20th elegance Great views for those who choose to walk to the middle of the Canadian span
