Did you know that Vermont has the most covered bridges for a state of its size? Vermont actually has 104 covered bridges. In Southern Vermont, some highlights of the many covered bridges include the Bridge at the Green in Arlington and the Henry/Burt Bridge in Bennington. However, this is only the beginning. Covered bridges offer a wonderful opportunity to stop, take pictures, and enjoy the scenic views of the Green Mountains. There is also a guide to Vermont’s covered bridges that provides a short description of the bridge and also its location in Vermont. I think you will find this very useful when planning your Vermont getaway!
In Bennington, Vermont there is also a Vermont Covered Bridge Museum. There is more to a covered bridge than meets the eye. This museum opened in 2003 at the Bennington Center. While visiting the museum visitors can learn how covered bridges were made, see models of Vermont’s covered bridges, experience the natural environment of the covered bridge, see a working covered bridge railroad layout, and view a film documentary called the Covered Bridges of Vermont. The museum is open Tuesday thru Sunday and worth the visit.
Two of the Distinctive Inns of New England are located in the Vermont area. If you are near the Northeast Kingdom, plan to visit the Rabbit Hill Inn. In southern Vermont, we recomment a stay at the Chesterfield Inn which is located in close proximity to Brattleboro, Vermont.
