This past Tuesday, I had the “pleasure” of driving my daughter and two friends to Allentown for a concert. Allentown is about 30ish miles from home, so not so far that I could not have come home after dropping them off and returned when the concert was over 8 HOURS later. I decided however, to enjoy a day on my own with my camera.
I had researched a few things in the area to see/do that were free. I found a great printable walking tour of the downtown area, that pointed out the architecture and history of some of the buildings, as well as a driving tour of Covered Bridges in the area.
As it was quite a warm day, and I really did not feel like hitting the pavement in town, I opted for the covered bridges. There were seven listed, I set out to see what I could see.
My first stop along the way was Bogart’s Bridge. This bridge is not in service for vehicles, just foot traffic across the Little Lehigh River. This bridge is the oldest in the Lehigh Valley, and one of the oldest in the country. The bridge is located in a beautiful spot, full of activity – runners, bikers, walkers, and fishermen were seen during my stop!
