The Remarkable Bridge In Iowa That Everyone Should Visit At Least Once

Iowa is kind of famous when it comes to creating stunning bridges. Not only is Iowa we home to the storied Bridges of Madison County, but the award-winning High Trestle Trail Bridge has been named one of the most stunning in the world! With all of our super-famous bridges getting the spotlight, smaller, historic bridges often get ignored. One beautiful, century-old structure in Johnson County is worth a visit if you love vintage architecture.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
