Explore Columbus Junction's Swinging Bridge

Iowa Swinging Bridge

Added by

This is a great spot to bring your camera, set up a hammock if you've got one, and relax.

The Swinging Bridge is one of the main attractions in Columbus Junction, Iowa. The highway runs straight through town. As you drive into town you will see multiple signs about the bridge. About half-way through town you will take a left, and the bridge is only a few yards away. It is free to walk across the bridge. The bridge is a fun place to hang out with friends and relax. We tied a hammock up in the gazebo near the bridge, listened to some folk music, and took some photographs.

How to Get There

Photoshoped

Something fishy about these pictures, in one photo the girl has her hair curled, in the other picture its straight. Kinda strange to say the least, but at least her clothes are the same in both pictures.
