Looks like Ashtabula County is pretty much the covered bridge capital of Ohio with 16, and most of them are within a few miles of I-90, which I would assume you'll be travelling if you are going to Erie. I haven't seen any of them, but I would guess there are a few worth checking out.
vpbob21: That's a great website -- thanks! I may use that myself in the future...
Thanks Pastiche & Vbob!
I like the website too. Actually the first half of the week we'll be travelling into Ohio from Wheeling WV, heading to New Philadelphia/Dover for the night. We'll have the next day to take the scenic route through the Amish area and will spend the next night in or around Bowling Green. Looking forward to just relaxing and taking in all the "pastoral" beauty the area might have to offer.
Thanks again for the link! I really wanted to post this just in Ohio forum as we will be covering a large part of the state, but TA will not allow it. You now have to select a specific locale to post in!
I've enjoyed reading through many of the older posts for ideas and may be back on with some additional questions.
Have fun in BG! I'm a BG grad! :)
I'm afraid I'm not a BG grad! My mother was born & raised in BG on Wooster St Across the street from campus, they moved to Florida way back in 1955!. My great aunt had a farm outside of town & I spent a few Summers there with my grandmother, so that is my connection to the area. Haven't been to OH since I was about 12 yrs old, so I am looking forward to it.
Hope you have fond memories of your time there!
If it's not too far out of your way & you have time, take a hike around Oak Openings and visit the Toledo Museum of Art and the Toledo Zoo. Both the museum and zoo are world-class...
This is a site that highlights our October festival but there is a lot of useful info on it with regards to covered bridges.
Hope you have an enjoyable trip!
