“What a bridge!”

Mystic River Bascule Bridge
Ranked #4 of 19 things to do in Mystic
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We were lucky enough to see the bridge raised. I would hate to be stuck in the traffic needing to be somewhere in a hurry. The bridge is magnificent; the photos are great.

The bridge is fun to watch open and close and my little ones enjoyed seeing it. Make sure you get across before the gates close unlike what happen when we were watching, some poor elderly woman had to do the limbo with the help of some good samaritans.

Beautiful benches and paths around the bridge allow to spend a little down time watching the boats and yachts line up waiting for the drawbridge to open. Kids love it and the view is amazing.
