Swinging Bridge

The Swinging Bridge is fun to check out. During the wet season the Arroyo grande creek runs underneath... Which makes it nice. For the real adventure head into the village... one block over. Lots of little shops and different events, depending on what time of the year you come. Come check out the Strawberry Festival! Or come during Christmas time when the village is all lit up.
