“Beautiful!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I have gone to the bridge of flowers 3 times just this year alone. The care that is taken to ensure the plants are healthy is admirable. Evrything looks beautiful and as you walk the bridge you will see how one flower compliments the next along your journey. Absolutely worth the trip just to see the beauty!! Also, there are great places to have lunch nearby as well as other attractions and locla artist merchandise.

“Beauty and serenity”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

During a recent vacation in the Berkshires, we went to a restaurant in Shelbourne Falls and walked across the bridge of flowers. The flowers are very beautiful, the view is spectacular and the walk across the bridge is like entering a magical and serene world. I look forward to returning there.

“Lovely spot for a stroll, well worth a day trip”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Shelburne Falls is a pretty little town to visit if you are traveling along Rte. 91 in Massachusetts, and the Bridge of Flowers is the prime attraction. It is an accessible foot bridge across the river, with flowers planted on both sides, beautifully maintained by local volunteers. The flowers are ever-changing through the growing season, so it is worth coming back at various times to see. Besides what can be seen from the bridge itself, and the beautiful views of the river and mountains from the bridge, you can also get a different view from the nearby car bridge, with foliage cascading over the side. On the day we visited, we also spotted various waterbirds in the river below. In addition to the Bridge of Flowers, there are many interesting boutiques and small shops, a trolley museum, and restaurants -- so there's enough here for a pleasant day trip from spring through fall.

“Beautiful Location in Shelburne Falls”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

The Bridge of Flowers is a favorite destination and a short ride from the Springfield, MA area. Take Route 91 to Route 2 West, the Mohawk Trail. Continue past Shelburne to the "Village of Shelburne Falls." The bridge is over the Deerfield River from Shelburne Falls to Buckland. It is an enjoyable walk and the flowers are absolutely beautiful. This is handicapped accessible. A beautiful destination and the town itself is beautiful.

“Beautiful Spot...”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Stopped in Shelburne Falls on 8/27/13 and walked across The Bridge of Flowers. All the flowers were in bloom.It was quite relaxing to stroll over the bridge and enjoy the flowers, the view of the river and the mountains in the background. Restaurants and gift shops are close by but many were closed on Tuesday.
