Take a Joy Ride Over a Covered Bridge

Enjoy a scenic journey and some private talk-time for less than the price of a tank of gas

Take a Joy Ride Over a Covered Bridge

Each week, we’ll tell you about one great idea to give you a much deserved break, and make your life a little easier, maybe a whole lot easier.

We all know that couple’s time is important, right?

We all know that when you’ve got kids, that time is more precious than the last loaf of bread in the supermarket before the snow storm of the week. And, for the most part, just as scarce.

Money is tight. Time is even tighter.

But, you don’t have to spend a lot or go too far to enjoy a Great Escape with your significant other.

In fact, you can get all the quiet conversation of a candlelit restaurant and the romance of a picturesque European countryside right in the Lehigh Valley.

It sounds too good to be true, right?

All you’ve got to do is head over to Hamilton Boulevard in Allentown and embark on the Lehigh Valley’s self-guided covered bridge tour.

If you really want to impress, pack a picnic basket with some snacks. Grab a camera. Then, download a PDF of the tour, fill up the gas tank and hit the road.

There are a lot of plusses here.

You can enjoy the entire tour from the warmth of your car.

Being in the car will give you and your significant other ample time to talk to each other. Uninterrupted time. Imagine that.

Plus, those quaint, historic covered bridges are going to be breathtaking against the backdrop of all the snow.
