Very cool historical site. Drove across 3 times, then got out & walked it. Located on the Connecticut River, between Windsor, VT and Cornish, NH.
My husband and I were in Northfield, MA for a 4-day canoe race. One day, we decided to eat lunch in Brattleboro, VT. After a disappointing lunch, we drove around and saw the wooden bridge. We were told that it was the longest covered bridge in the U.S.A. We drove in it and back. We took several pictures of the... 更多
That's what we were told, and for that, it was particularly note worthy. There's parking on both ends of the bridge so that you can walk it a bit, take some pictures and what have you. It's worth a visit on your way.
