  • This lift bridge has been in downtown Mystic for nearly a centurary, and it's fun to see it go up & down as a pedestrian. Not as much fun if your are driving and are caught waiting.  more »
  • I find the bridge a little frightening. The cement blocks are HUGE! What is so amazing is that when it opens there is complete silence! A must see when you are in Mystic.  more »
