The Magnificent Overlook In Delaware That’s Worthy Of A Little Adventure
Did you know that you can walk right across the Indian River Inlet Bridge? Spot the ocean and the inlet, along with miles of beaches, from high above the water. If you’re looking for a beautiful walk to take this spring or summer, it’s hard to beat this ocean view in Delaware.
The Indian River Inlet Bridge has quite the history. Over the years, five different bridges have been built at this spot, and five different bridges have failed. This sixth bridge was completed in 2011 and seems to be up to the task.
Today, the engineering marvel that spans the Indian River Inlet is open to both vehicle and pedestrian traffic, and walking over the bridge is one decision you'll be glad you made.
The view from the bridge overlooks the ocean, inlet, and the scenic beaches of Delaware Seashore State Park. It's a great birdwatching spot!
It's even more spectacular in the earliest hours of the morning, when the sun rises over the ocean. At night, the sun setting on the inlet makes for a gorgeous scene, too.
Take some time on your next trip down south to cross the bridge on foot - you'll love the up-close view of bridge architecture that's rare to see.
At night, walking across the blue-lit bridge is an experience that feels unreal. Truly, no matter when you cross the Indian River Inlet Bridge, you'll make a memory that will last a lifetime.
creepy, deadly history of the Indian River Inlet here… but you might want to wait until after your hike to catch up on the story.
