Mont Saint-Michel Opens Footbridge So You Can Stroll To The Famous Island

In a day and age when supersonic jets and solar-powered drones are all the rage, it's nice to know a simple footbridge can still draw crowds.

In late July, a 2,493-foot long pedestrian bridge opened to Mont Saint-Michel so tourists can arrive on foot from the coast of Normandy to the historic island. Previously, tourists accessed the island by driving across a causeway.

Check out photos of the new footbridge below.
