Ever heard the saying “we will cross that bridge when we get there?” Well, hold on to your seat for a white knuckle ride if you have ever been on any of these bridges. It’s either a long way down or a long swim back to shore! I have crossed the Mackinac Bridge several times and it is very scary especially when it’s snowing and there are high winds. The metal grate you drive across allows you to look down into the water. They’ve even closed the bridge on numerous occasions because it was just too dangerous! This bridge you can get a driver to escort you and your vehicle across. Have you crossed any of these bridges listed here?
