10 Vermont Covered Bridges

There are several things that come to mind when thinking about Vermont. This little state in the northeast of the United States is known for its country living and rural landscapes. Here’s a fact: Vermont is the second least populous of all fifty states. Yet, it is the biggest exporter of maple syrup in the country, and as a result also what it is known best for. I’m not going to lie, pouring some maple syrup on your pancakes or ice cream makes those things even more delicious. Besides maple syrup, the state is also known for the beautiful Green Mountains, fall foliage, Ben & Jerry’s, wooden barns and, of course, covered bridges.

Although covered bridges can be found in a lot of American states, Vermont has more covered bridges per square mile than any other place in the world. There are more than a hundred. Every map that you pick up will have markings or symbols indicating where a covered bridge can be found. They are real highlights in the state.

The Vermont covered bridges  can be seen on covered bridge drives, loops that take you through the beautiful countryside and to corners of the state that you would never visit otherwise. When staying in Vermont, definitely make sure to rent a car and go for a drive in the countryside.

Driving around with just a map is a fantastic way to get to know the area. I get lost occasionally, but that’s okay. That’s how you find hidden places upon which you wouldn’t stumble if you just followed the main roads. So far I’ve taken pictures of forty Vermont covered bridges. Allow me to share my ten favorites below.

I won’t go into detail about the various types of covered bridges, materials used or truss types here. No one really cares about that and neither do I. I just like to see the typical features of a certain region, state or country. And while I’m living in the Green Mountain State, I may as well go see each and every covered bridge of Vermont, right? That’s exactly what I’m doing right now!
