Longest covered bridge

We found this bridge by accident and it's a great side trip. Beautiful views of the Conneticut River.

The end to our travels in Vermont towards Maine. We made a special detour to this bridge. Well worth it. It's beautiful. Great pull off spot for photos on the NH side. :)

Accidentaly we stumbled upon this bridge while doing some research of our roadtrip to New England and Canada. As we were driving from Ben & Jerrys in Waterbury to Boston, MA, we made a detour to see this bridge. We've read that covered bridge is something very typical for New England and we just couldn't leave without seeing one of... More

Rode across the bridge a couple of times to get the full experience. Two way traffic inside the bridge is quite manageable and seems to withstand the daily load. Only understood more recently that covered bridges are covered not for the benefit of the travelers but to protect the wood contraction from the rain water which will rot it. This... More

You encounter this bridge suddenly as you travel along the country road and are blown away by the simple beauty of its construction. It takes you right into the past as you drive over the wooden floorboards.

A "gem" to visit during our September visit to Vermont. Among all of the bridges we visited, this was our one of our favorites! The bridge is easy to get to from the center of town. Ample parking area on the eastern side of the bridge. There are numerous photo ops of the bridge. Stop by the Windsor Diner for... More

It's just a few minutes from Harpoon, worth a quick bounce over. The bridge is the longest 2-lane covered bridge in the world. The bridge spans the Connecticut river, and if you are in the area in Vermont or New Hampshire, you gotta drive over it. It's free, and cool. The sign over the bridge notes, Walk your horse or...

Stopped here for a photo opportunity in a delightful setting on the edge of town. This is, I believe, the longest two lane wooden covered bridge in the world and is well worth a visit. There is parking close at hand so you can safely stop for pictures The structure is an interesting for its engineering as well as its... More

A very old wooden covered bridge over 400 feet long (2 spans) and it carries two lanes of traffic. Wow! Impressive. I wish there was a display somewhere on how they built it.

Cross the Connecticut River from New Hampshire to Vermont (or vice versa) over this long covered bridge. Definitely worth the drive if you are in the area and looking for those quaint things from a bygone era.
