There are 6 bridges to visit in this area. All are within a short driving distance from each other and well worth the drive.

This bridge makes we want to reread Bridges of Madison County. Beautiful bridge where a beautiful thing happened in the book. There is a gift shop nearby, but was closed the day we visited.

Beautiful covered bridge that was featured in the movie The Bridges of Madison County. There are 6 bridges in the area but this one is probably the most visited. If you loved the movie it's a must see.

You probably could, but it would not be a place that I could see working well for the event. It's way out of town, very dusty roads, not a lot of parking and, being outside, you never know what the weather will do to a... More
