Scattered throughout the quaint and scenic towns of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, sit 12 historical wooden covered bridges. Visit Bucks County has designed a self-guided tour for tourists and residents.
“When you drive through these covered bridges, it brings you back to a simpler time and brings you feelings of nostalgia,” said Paul Bencivengo, Visit Bucks County’s President and Chief Operations Officer.
Bencivengo said the quaint bridges attract eight million visitors annually, generating $1 billion in revenue and supporting 27,000 hospitality jobs.
