These 6 Beautiful Covered Bridges In Wisconsin Will Remind You Of A Simpler Time

Once upon a time, we used to have in excess of 40 covered bridges in Wisconsin. Now, only a few remain. There is something truly special and nostalgic about covered bridges. They remind you of a simpler time, back when pedestrian traffic and horses is all the use that they would get. Many have fallen into disrepair, crumbling under heavier loads or simply being neglected with time. So if you’re lucky enough to have a covered bridge near you, enjoy it while you can! Here are six covered bridges in Wisconsin that are absolutely perfect to explore.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Did we forget any? Is there a covered bridge in your town that did not get included? Be sure to share a photo with us on the Only in Wisconsin Facebook page! We love checking out covered bridges in Wisconsin.

What are some beautiful gardens in Wisconsin?

The Allen Centennial Gardens in Madison are absolutely stunning. With 20 individual gardens surrounding a Victorian home, there’s something for everyone there! We have a number of fantastic botanical gardens and nature refuges in Wisconsin, though. And have you checked out the Mitchell Park Domes? It’s not every day that you see geodesic domes housing botanical gardens!

What are the best natural wonders in Wisconsin?

From caves to waterfalls, we’ve got it all in Wisconsin. We absolutely love the Niagara Escarpment. This incredible ledge extends all the way from New York and looks like something you’d see in a tropical island! And of course, two of the great lakes border our shores (Lake Superior and Lake Michigan). Check out some more of our beautiful natural wonders on this list.

What are the best state parks in Wisconsin?

Devil’s Lake State Park is super cool and unique. Rib Mountain State Park has miles of fun trails. Wisconsin is such a beautiful state and we’ve got so many amazing parks to explore. Did you know we have 66 state parks here? Here’s a list of some of our lesser-known state parks  that you may not typically see on “best of” lists.
