We in Maine were surprised to learn that the beautiful Penobscot Narrows Bridge runs between Bangor and Brewer. In fact, it connects Prospect, in Waldo County, with Verona, in Hancock County. The three bridges that connect Bangor and Brewer are frankly boring in comparison. And if you’re in the area, please head 30 miles up the coast to Sedgwick to see the Deer Isle Bridge. This lovely and much-repaired suspension bridge over Eggemoggin Reach is the sister to the infamous Tacoma Narrows Bridge, and while mostly stable, can make for an entertaining trip on a very windy day.
