Mackinac Bridge, Michigan

Mackinac Bridge is a suspension bridge that spans approximately five miles across the Straits of Mackinac, connecting Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas.

It is one of the world’s longest suspension bridges and holds the record for being the longest suspension bridge in North America.
