We alweays take out-of-town company here. The bridge is interesting history; fun to walk (also walk the short trail along the river on the NY side) and of course eagle watching is always the highlight.

Like: Seeing Bald Eagles, hearing Nature's peace and quiet without so much human noise, and seeing plenty of live fish. Dislike: Amateur "catch and release" anglers being sloppy. Saw too many dead fish of "keeper" size and quality.
