The Terrifying Swinging Bridge In Illinois That Will Make Your Stomach Drop
There’s nothing quite like the visual of walking across a swinging bridge to cause a rush of adrenaline and, most likely, a bit of panic. In the case of Pontiac’s swinging bridge, it’s not necessarily the height that makes walking this bridge a bit of an adventure, but rather the fact that it swings at all. So whether or not you choose to cross this fascinating structure, you’re sure to enjoy your visit to the Humiston-River Park.
