Incredibly 'scenic suspension footbridge across the Delaware with canal walks along both sides of the river. Plus a little store in Pennsylvania that was the family home pf Martin Johnson Heade, a famous American landscape painter.

The views of the Delaware river from the paths are beautiful. There are picnic areas and facilities, which I appreciate. I like taking the pedestrian bridge to Pennsylvania. At the Pennsylvania end you can find the Black Bass restaurant which has spectacular views
