Known for its various covered bridges, Bucks County is home to several that are amazing travel destinations all year round. Sana Mahmud and Gina Kim wrote about the bridges for WHYY.
Being that the area is home to so many of the historic bridges, it can become confusing when trying to see them all. A fun weekend excursion, locals and vistors have been making the trek for years.
Referred to as “The Eastern Half Loop,” the first part of your tour will take you to the visitors center of Washington Crossing Historic Park. From their, you should travel to the bridges in this order:
- Van Sandt Covered Bridge in New Hope. Fun fact: known as “Crybaby Bridge,” it is a regular stop for those looking for a fright, as it is reportedly haunted. (Editor’s note: from my travels to this bridge, I lean on the side of there being ghosts in that area. It is a perfect Halloween destination.)

- Cabin Run Covered Bridge, also in Pipersville
- Frankenfield Covered Bridge in Erwinna
- Erwinna Covered Bridge, also in Erwinna
- Uhlerstown Covered Bridge in Tinicum
