We loved watching the draw bridge open! Was so happy my 8 year old son got to witness it. Only the second time in my life time as well. It's beautiful!

We love this bridge. The engineering on this bridge is out for you to see. We did not get to see it go up this time but we have in the past. A place to take our Grandchildren. A must see in Mystic.

Okay. I wouldn't hang around just waiting for boat traffic to cause this bridge to rotate. But we had the fun experience of seeing this happen while passing along on a boat. Cool.

We were visiting the Mystic area and decided to check out the downtown area. Sadly, it was during the first snowball of the season and most stores were closed. We have seen other bridges like this one so we had to see it and compare...More

The Mystic River Bascule Bridge draws people of all ages. Tourists and locals alike love to gather and watch the drawbridge raise, allow the boats to pass, then lower again. A fascinating piece of historical engineering still used multiple times daily, year round. When in...More

Nice walk over the old bridge. We were hoping we would get to see it open but it didn't open while we were there. The view from the bridge is beautiful and there is a plaque on the bridge with some of the history.
