Reviewed April 16, 2014

The lift bridge is a great place from which to watch the ships when the weather permits. It is especially nice to come down at night.

“Free, Historic, and fun”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

See the big ships go through the canal during the summer, there is a free maritime museum, and walk along the shore of beautiful Lake Superior. It really is fun to visit during any season. Kids love to stand under the bridge as cars pass above. love to feed the birds and throw rocks into the lake.

“Interesting”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

I really like watching the bridge go up and down as needed. There is a building where you can go see the history of the bridge and how and why it was built, this is pretty nice.
