Michigan: Charlevoix the Beautiful: Charlevoix Drawbridge

The Memorial Bridge may be Charlevoix's most notable landmark and attraction. The bridge spans the Pine River which connects Lake Michigan to Round Lake. The bridge opens every half-hour during the summer to let boats leave and enter Round Lake. Several different bridges have crossed the river since 1869. The current structure was completed in 1949.
