It would have been nice to stop here, but the place was packed with a festival going on and NO PLACE to park to even look let alone get a picture of this bridge. Very dissatisfied with this conclusion.

Come early for good parking. Lots of venders and walking. Big variety of foods. Typical prices for a place like this. Does have a helicopter ride. Lots and Lots of antiques, new hand made aricles and old stuff. Would be difficult to see it all in one day. You don't want to. Stop, enjoy yourself, mingle with the people and... More

This is a really nice town that still has retained the vintage covered bridge and a mill from the 1800's. we went during a festival that attracts thousands of people from across the country and still enjoyed it. Be sure to bring currency and not rely on Visa cards as not really where you would expect to find wifi.

Went here during Covered Bridge Festival. Was VERY crowded. Will need to come again when the crowds aren't so large. The bridge is huge, and in very good condition. The falls are lovely. Lots of good photo opportunities. Be sure to visit the mill. It is a working mill. You can purchase fresh ground mill...even purple cornmeal.

Ater years of hearing people talk about this festival and their annual visits, my friend and I took a day trip this week to Bridgeton-- the only site we visited. It was a lovely fall day and we enjoyed the drive to the country and the turning leaves on the backroads. Beyond that the attraction seemed to be not much... More

This is an area with over 30 covered bridges, and several large and small flea markets. Bridges are found throught Park County, but the flea markets go from Terre Haute to Veedersburg, and all along hwy 36, 41 and... More

I have been going to this festival for 20 years. I really love it. Lots of food vendors, creative vendors, too many junk people, but, lots of people like it, so . .I highly recommend if you like searching for treasures, but don't be in a hurry, this is a take your time kind of event.

You need to make room reservations early. Bridgeton's bridge had to be rebuilt a couple years ago after arson. It is still beautiful. The town is full of crafts. Then onto Mansfield. The bridge is intact and connects two areas. This is more a flea market of new items and hundreds of fast food booths. Bring your walking shoes. Cell... More
