Nice bridge to see. Great pictures. Nice little place. There is a little playground for kids. Don't think anything much is open during the off season but if you are there to look at the bridge it's a good setting.

Stopped here on a motorcycle ride. Truly a beautiful site to see. Great place with excellent photo opportunities. Every shot looks like a post card. There is also a place to stop and have ice cream. Very friendly people.

Just beware you may not have cell phone service out there if you are one that rely on MAPS app. I suggest taking a printed map with you if you don't know your way.
