Rustic covered bridges are a charm. Parke and Putnam county Indiana have majestic ones. Bridgeston is one of those gems and as is Mansfield. See it and be amazed.

This is the prettiest bridge in the area that I found and the Mill has great treats to buy. Check it out.

This is one of my favorite covered bridges in the area. The scenery is beautiful and it's very relaxing to listen to the water crash. If you're going to do a driving route of the covered bridges I recommend going in the winter when there is some snow on the ground. It makes for great pictures!

The original covered bridge was destroyed by arson, but the community has done an amazing job of restoring this site. Easy walking distance to a mill and shops (may be closed during off season).

The photo opts don't get much better than this! We were the only people there, as it's rather late in the year. That was nice for our pictures, but everything else was closed for the season. The town seems a little sketchy and there was a strange young guy walking around looking rather suspicious. We did leave because of his... More

Most covered bridges are out in the middle of the country. This one has the added benefit of having the mill next door. Even better when there's a festival in progress.

Bridgeton is one of the best little towns in the area. The covered bridge is well preserved despite a decent amount of foot traffic. The bridge really adds to the ambiance of Bridgeton, and provides a certain nostalgia and charm to each visit. If you're visiting covered bridge territory, definitely stop by Bridgeton!

I love the Covered Bridge Festival in Rockville, Indiana. So much fun! Crafts, antiques, great food! It's goes on every year around the 2nd week of October. (Always during my birthday!) The colors are starting to turn and the weather has been beautiful every time I've gone. It was cloudy for us, but the rain stayed away long enough for... More
