The Longest Swinging Bridge In Maine Can Be Found In Topsham And The Views Are Unbeatable

Maine has a lot of history. You can learn about a lot of it in the many museums across the state. But what we love most are the tiny unexpected details that provide a glimpse into what life was like long before today. It’s not the artifacts sitting behind glass that do this best. To us, the best way to understand what life was like decades ago is by looking at the things people created to help make their lives easier. This bridge is a great example!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
