“The most interesting bridge....”

Mystic River Bascule Bridge
Ranked #3 of 35 things to do in Mystic
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 9 December 2011

This bridge is fascinating. It's located in the heart of charming Mystic, right next to a delicious ice cream store. It's fun to just sit on one of the convenient benches and watch boats go by... even if the bridge is down, small boats can go under the bridge. It's wonderful for people and dog watching. It's a very friendly area for people of all ages. Also, don't forget to walk down the street for a delicious slice of pizza at Mystic Pizza where service is terrific.

We had late lunch at the S&P Oyster Company and were lucky enough to get table by window. As it was off-season, the bridge raised as needed, as there were several small boats going back and forth. I saw it go up and down 3 times. The structure is pretty cool to see. The large concrete blocks are something definitely different. This is one of those things I'm glad I saw, but I wouldn't have made the trip to just see this.

Awesome piece of massive engineering, could have stopped and watched for ages, be sure to try the Mystic Express boat tout which leaves from ouside the S & P Oyster Company Restaurant, it was advertised as half an hour but lasted more like 45 minutes, excellent value, the Captain was informative, humorous and enteretaining with the knack of just saying enough and giving you time to look out over the sights, thoroughly recommended.

What a wonderful piece of history and to watch it in this modern world was fantastic. Interesting to watch and such a relaxing way to enjoy history! Get an ice cream at the Bridge, walk across and sit along the waterway and just wait and watch! Actually very romantic and so enjoyable from every angle!
