My wife and I have a hobby of driving around to see all the covered bridges in New Hampshire and Vermont (54 in NH, by the way). It's really fun and can be combined with other attractions.

If you are in town the covered bridge is definately a quick and interesting stop. The Bridge connects VT and NH, spanning the CT river. Cars use this bridge, so you cannot walk through it. It is a nice site to see though, but I wouldn't make a trip just for the bridge itself.

I was born in Windsor over 68 years ago. As a kid I watched them place dynamit in the ice jams that formed against the rock structures of the bridge.

Very cool historical attraction. You can drive or walk across it. The architecture and history is fascinating. Imagining what it took to create such a structure and that it is still standing is amazing.

This is a very pretty covered bridge. It is higher than most other covered bridges I have seen. I wish you see more of the view when driving across it.

This is the longest wooden bridge in the United States and longest two-span covered bridge in the world. Still being used. Easy to find and nice stop on our scenic drive.

Stopped during the lovely late afternoon light hitting the bridge. It's the longest covered bridge in America. Be careful when taking pictures as the road traffic flies by. A quick stop to read the history and photos.
