Walk Across A 280-Foot Suspension Bridge In Granite Falls, Minnesota
Even if you’re a lifelong Minnesotan, you may be surprised to learn that the Land of 10,000 Lakes is home to a number of superlative bridges. The Virginia High Bridge is the tallest in the state, rising 200 feet over the water below. The Stone Arch Bridge is a beautiful and historic span of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis. And the Zumbrota Covered Bridge is the last of its kind in Minnesota. These are all well worth visiting, but there are many more bridges to discover in Minnesota. For example, there’s a little-known suspension bridge in Granite Falls, Minnesota. This rare suspension bridge doubles as a pedestrian path. Next time you’re in the area, be sure to pay it a visit!
