The Legend Of Texas’ Screaming Bridge Will Make Your Hair Stand On End
Texas is full of urban legends, but most are either completely fabricated or versions of truth stretched so far they might as well be fake. This story, however, is different. The history of Arlington’s Screaming Bridge is absolutely terrifying, and it’s the last place you’d want to find yourself alone after night has fallen.

The bridge is located at River Legacy Park in Arlington, but you’ll have to ask a park ranger for explicit directions as it’s extremely difficult to explain in writing. But maybe it’s better if you just forget about it…visiting this gruesome place might be the most grave mistake you’ve ever made.
