Plan a Driving Tour to See These Majestic Covered Bridges

There are lots of different ways to theme a road trip in order to see an eclectic collection of sites. For example, some people like to see how much of the historic Lincoln Highway they can drive. Others make a list of roadside diners that offer a slice of Americana to guide them on car adventures. Still others turn to historic items in order to create a cohesive vacation. One that might be interesting to try? Covered bridges.

These old-time slices of previous American modes of transportation are a window into how we used to live life. The reason for covered bridges is that covering the bridge helped it last longer and also enabled engineers to be able to build longer bridges. Luckily for us, engineers started discovering this in the early 1800s and people devoted themselves to saving them. Want to dive into these on your own? This graphic offers some good steps.

    There’s something very nostalgic and romantic about the old “kissing bridges”. We’re fortunate to have one right here in West Montrose in Waterloo Region within easy driving distance of where I live.
