Covered Bridge Park- Cedarburg

Alright, just one more "out of Milwaukee county" park to add since it is the holiday season.  You'll allow that, right?  Covered Bridge park should be included on anyone's list of fun places to go outdoors mainly because of its historic value.  If you click the above link, you'll get a bit of history on the bridge.  This is the only covered bridge left in Wisconsin!  Every kid I've ever known loves to run inside and shout so they hear their echo!  For you adults, it's just very cool to see how bridges were made before we discovered concrete and steel.  It can be a bit tricky to find as it's on covered bridge road, but use the link above as they describe how to find it.  It showed up on my Oh Ranger park finder app, and that's how I discovered it originally, but the directions weren't quite right, so you may not want to trust your GPS.

There are actually 2 bridges in the park, the other is just a span over the river without cover, but it makes for a good photo op too.  There isn't a lot to do other than the 2 bridges here.  I have seen some fly fishermen here, but don't recall ever seeing a fish on the end of the line.  It is a picnic area.  At any rate, put this on your list if you have any interest in Wisconsin history.
