Artist’s Bridge Is A Tiny, Scenic Stop In Maine Worth Taking A Detour For

Maine is full of scenic views and tucked-away beauties. Some are right outside our front door. In fact, many are right outside our front door when you consider just how special this state is. You really don’t need to go far to be reminded of how lucky we are to be in Vacationland. BUT! There are some extra-special attractions that are worth traveling for. This little covered bridge might not take up much real estate, but it’s one of the most special little treasure we have and it’s worth visiting on a day-trip.
