This is a great place to stop for a quick selfie with a very old suspension bridge that is still in use today! Plenty of gift shops and places to eat on the weekend as well.

A beautiful bridge and can't image it is over 120 years old. Don't forget to get down to the river for a spectacular view. You can also hire a kayak or canoe to go on the water.
