This was a fun quick stop. You can see the tubers below. Nice view of the river. If you are in the area or having lunch at miss lilly's, it's worth stopping and walking across. I saw a few people get their tubes out and hop on the river from this point.

Not very easy to find, and if it wasn't for Trip Advisor we wouldn't have known anything about it. It was fun to go across, very nice view of the river. Something different to do.

We had read about this bridge on Trip advisor and thought it sounded like a fun place to visit. We stopped there as soon as we got into town and it was a great way to start our vacation because we laughed so much. Its a weird feeling to be on the swinging bridge and for some reason it set us to laughing and being silly like 2 kids instead of 55+ adults celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary! The view of the river was excellent also. We were there only about 10 or 15 minutes and our first reaction was...this is it? But it ended up being a great memory and we'll probably go there next visit also. Seeing the tubers on the river made me want to go tubing too but my husband nixed that idea!

If you've never been on a swinging bridge this is a lot of fun. It bounces up and down when you walk on it and has a pretty view of the river. Take 10 minutes out of your day to make a memory. Easy to find, just turn by the Subway shop near the Heartland Chapel

We had just eaten at Miss Lilly's Cafe and walked behind it to the little swinging bridge. It's not a bad little bridge, not too long, not too scary. Doesn't take long to walk across and back. Worth taking the time.
