10 Beautiful Covered Bridges Around Philadelphia That Remind Us Of A Simpler Time

Pennsylvania was once full of covered bridges, with over 1,500 of these pretty creek crossings dotting the countryside. Now, there are just about 200, and Lancaster County has the most. You don’t have to go all the way out to the country to see them, though – these 10 are located close enough to Philadelphia that you cross most of them in an afternoon drive!

The Thompson Mill Bridge is the closest one to Center City. While you’re there, hike through Wissahickon Valley Park and see a whole world of wonders just north of the city.
