Cross that covered bridge when you come to it
There are seven wonders of the world, but if your vacation plans are a little less grandiose this year, how about the seven covered bridges of Lehigh Valley?
The historic bridges in Pennsylvania all date to the 19th century, and you can still drive your car through six of the seven. The Kreidersville covered bridge, built in 1839 and the oldest of the bridges, is open only to pedestrians.
To download a brochure you can use to take a self-guided tour of the bridges, go to lehighvalleypa.org and click on the link to "Brochures & Maps." You can also get the brochure by calling 800-747-0561.
Lehigh Valley is about 90 miles from the Nassau-Queens border, so it could make a nice summer day trip for a car loaded with grandkids.
