During a visit to Lancaster County we followed a driving guide to see the covered bridges in the Lititz countryside. It was a lovely day and an easy drive to see many beautiful covered bridges. more »
Picturesque! A little dangerous in terms of traffic actually - it's a single lane and not enforced in any way.
It's a great historical site. Very sturdy.
Beautiful bridge. Worth the drive up from the middle of Amish country
Nice bridge and there is a spot to pull off and take some nice pictures.
Beautiful place to fish or meditate.
