Covered Bridges in Alabama

October 17, 2021

How many covered bridges in Alabama are there?  

At the time of this writing, there are 11 covered bridges throughout the state of Alabama. Six of those bridges are still in the same place they were built in, and seven have been relocated at some point during their lives. Each bridge brings something unique and special to the table, so to speak; to visit them takes us back to a special time when things were quiet and simple. We’re not sure what it is about covered bridges, but it sure is special! Some of our favorite covered bridges in the state include the Old Union Crossing covered bridge, which was built in 1863, the Coldwater covered bridge, which was built in 1850, and the Alamuchee-Bellamy covered bridge, which was built in 1861. Of course, not all of the covered bridges in Alabama are quite that old – many were built in the 1900s and some in the 2000s. No matter its age, though, a covered bridge is a sight to be seen, especially during fall. For more of our favorites, check out this article!  

What are some fun things to do in Alabama?  

Alabama is a much more fun state than folks often give it credit for. There’s plenty of fun, interesting, educational, or otherwise lovely places to see and things to as long as you know where to look! Of course, the bigger cities are hubs of adventure; visit the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, for example, for an out-of-this-world experience. The Birmingham Zoo is world-famous for a reason and absolutely worth a visit when in Alabama. Of course, if sticking to the cities isn’t your thing, Alabama just so happens to be a breathtakingly beautiful place to live and visit as well. Check out gems like DeSoto State Park, Oak Mountain State Park, and plenty more. Of course, this state is also a paradise for those who love to hike, fish, hunt, camp, and otherwise enjoy the outdoors. The possibilities are endless!
