I think that is a point-of-view thing.... Hartland Bridge, world's longest covered bridge, at 391 meters long. It crosses the Saint John River. hmmm ok, well let´s have a look! we did go- took a picture and left! Sorry, but yes this bridge is long and it´s covered, but that´s it- nothing more to see.

We were here for lunch and were interested to walk across this bridge and see the interesting 1-way traffic, which was self regulated by just a stop sign on either side, not for the nervous driver.

When in New Brunswick you must see, then drive through, a covered bridge.There are many to choose from depending on what area you are visiting in this province. Aside from gift shops, etc, it is the opportunity to share in a part of history that is the draw here. Can't believe how many photos I took.

We absolutely loved out trip to Hartland and the B&B we stayed at. It would have been great if there was more to see in the town of Hartland.

It is a classic style one way bridge. What can I say? Largest in the world. Made me feel like a big man and was exhilarating. The gift shop had a hand written joke book about marriage you can read, and enter your own. The lady was skeptical of us at first it seemed for our obnoxious and excited behaviour.... More

This is definitely a must visit site when travelling Canada. It is close to transcanada so you can visit area without extending your travels. The Covered Bridge B&B is only minutes away. We drove from Ottawa, stayed at B&B which has excellent service. We had time to visit Hartland the next morning and then were able to reach our next... More

Besides being the longest covered bridge in the world, there is nothing else I fancy about this bridge. The covered bridge in Florence, Italy (Ponte Vecchio) is a lot more interesting.

A very cool experience, not too often do we see a cover bridge and of that size! Right in the heart of Hartland worth the trip as well as a chance to get some potato chips named after the bridge.

We planned to visit this bridge on our vacation and turned out to be very interesting. I have seen a few covered bridges in Oregon and this bridge of course is the longest. It also had a pedestrian walkway along side unlike other bridges I have seen.

We enjoyed this side stop along the way. Drove through the bridge, then the kids and I walked the bridge twice. Wonderful picnic tables all along the river. We made it so the stop here would be around lunch time, had a picnic lunch and then were on our way again.
