New England, Vermont especially, is known worldwide for old, picturesque covered bridges. There’s something so attractive and comely about covered bridges. From the way they accompany the bucolic rolling hills and landscapes you often find them in, to the historic and charming importance they have with locals and visitors alike, Vermont would certainly not be the same without them. To commemorate these quintessential Vermont landmarks, let’s take a look at the longest covered bridge in Vermont, the Cornish-Windsor Bridge, which crosses the Connecticut River and is an impressive 449 feet in length and over 150 years old.

Note that the bridge is not entirely in Vermont due to the fact that the Connecticut River, which separates Vermont from New Hampshire, is considered part of New Hampshire. Since the bridge can be accessed from Vermont (Windsor), we consider it a Vermont destination as well.

The Cornish–Windsor Covered Bridge is one of the most enchanting and handsome covered bridges in the United States. Let us know if you’ve been across it. Which other Vermont landmarks do you think we should feature? Let us know below in the comments section. We look forward to hearing from you.
