Lehigh Valley Covered Bridge Tour

Scenic drives and Covered Bridges are two of Pennsylvania's specialties.  Throughout the Commonwealth, you can find countless of scenic drives and over 200 covered bridges.  The Lehigh Valley Covered Bridge Tour features seven covered bridges over two counties.  The nearly 50 mile tour through Lehigh and Northampton Counties is an excellent day trip for photographers, adventurers, road enthusiasts, and more.  If you wish to drive this tour in person, the route is well marked and there is a published brochure for directions and background information on each bridge.
