We visited at the tail end of the summer when the plants were probably past their best, but on the other hand we were able to amble along, stopping to admire and take photos without getting in anyone's way or having our own enjoyment marred by crowds. It is very beautiful, and unexpected. I suppose I had been expecting plants... More

Spring to Fall this is the place to be. The Bridge of Flowers is a converted trolley bridge that has been lovingly transformed into a lush garden that is definitely worth the stroll through to check out all for the interesting plants and gorgeous flowers. Bring a camera because you'll be snapping a ton of photos of the beautiful buds,... More

We enjoyed our walk across the bridge. I am sure that when flowers are in bloom this is extraordinary.

Visited the location on a Sunday and there were many folks outside on this bridge. The bridge and views were quite nice, but oddly, many of the shops were closed and the town was a bit dead. I imagine it would be best to visit this bridge in the spring, but it was worth the quick stop.

The bridge is a lovely place to spend some time. We visited in October , so it was fairly quiet. It has been put together by local people and it's obvious a large amount of care has been taken over a number of years.

Next to the bridge that carries vehicles is a pedestrian bridge that has been adorned with Trees, shrubs, and flowers. I visited in the fall and wasn't expecting much, however I was surprised at how vibrant this vegetation was. They seem to do a very good job of ensuring that the bridge has interest for each season. There are two... More

The town is known for its year-round blooms on the Bridge of Flowers. Did not disappoint on our recent visit. The entire town is walkable with quaint shops, restaurants and, of course, the Bridge. Lovely walkway, picturesque in a very scenic town.

Open April to October this charming and imaginatively planted bridge is a former trolley bridge over the Deerfield River. Shelburne Falls is a pleasant town with a good second hand bookshop, cafes and quite wonderful rock formations. I understand this town was involved in the back to the land movement in the 60s/70s and there is certainly a pleasant hint... More
