Since the bridge is adjacent to Fort Knox, you can get in a visit there after you are done at the bridge. This is a unique bridge, because it has an observatory at the top of one of the towers. The view from the 400+...More

Well worth the admission price. Very beautiful views from an impressively high vantage point. Don't let the elevator ride scare you, it is a very smooth ride. Great little side trip to make on the way to Acadia.

Very nice views from the top of the bridge. Also toured the Fort Knox area. Priced very reasonably to get in at about $8 per person for non-resident adults.

This is a must do experience if you are even near the area! The elevator ride is smooth and takes less than a minute. The 360 degree views are unbelievable!

I have been on this bridge too many times to count now. I have been to the observatory about 4 times, with various family, friends & guests. Lots of great photos and memories made here! It is quite impressive and photogenic!
