Can you get there from here? This old saying really means something when you consider getting across the mighty Connecticut without the bridges we have today! There are approximately 58 vehicle bridges currently spanning the Connecticut River and ten were chosen as representative examples for the Connecticut River Museum's 2013 exhibit 'Crossing the Connecticut: Bridges of the Connecticut River'. The exhibit features several different styles of bridge design and explores how people's ideas of what bridges should look like and how they reflect how their communities have changed over time. The exhibit features many objects and images from the Museum's collections as well as paintings, original toll signs, documents and other artifacts on loan from other institutions. Through October 20.

Those same vendors suggest that at high tide this weekend(12:16 p.m. on Saturday,13th and 1:05 p.m. on Sunday,14th),it will be a good time to come to the Fleamarket and avoid the "sea of shoppers" that tend to flee the beaches and gather at the Fleamarket during the lower tide times (and lower wave times)of day.The General Stanton Inn, one of the oldest,largest and most popular outdoor fleamarkets in the area,is open Saturdays, Sundays and holiday Mondays until Columbus Day.
