SkyBridge is the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America. The experience offers an unparalleled view of the Smokies, as you can see in the video above. The bridge stretches 680 feet across a deep valley and has a height of 140 feet at the midpoint. You can walk across the 5-foot-wide bridge at your own pace. This is what the bridge looks like from the side. As you can see in the video below, there's even a section of the bridge that's made of glass to give you a clear view of the valley below. For an extra visual element, the operators of the bridge, which opened in May, decorated the attraction for its first holiday season. As you can see in the video below, the magically lit walkway brightens this bird's-eye view of this snowy wonderland. So if you aren't too scared of heights, add this bridge to your bucket list.
