Owner of Lafayette Limo has gone on to Heaven

 

November 27, 2017

Summertime is the best time to go out and blow off some steam with family and friends on the weekend. It’s a time to relax and have some fun! You might just be barhopping with friends or maybe you’re traveling around town for a friend’s birthday, but one question always comes into mind and can kill the exciting spirit you had going for the evening and that question is...who's driving?

Covered Bridge Festivals: Experience an Indiana Tradition

 

Where to Find Covered Bridges

The closest place to see covered bridges is just a few hours south of Lafayette, in Parke County, Indiana. Rockville is the city at the center of the festival, and a great place to start.

The drive down to Rockville is incredibly scenic as well. One of the great attractions of going to the covered bridge festival is seeing the brilliant colors of the leaves as you travel south. Why not take a bus so your whole group can enjoy them? It will also save you money on parking when you get there.

For more information on the Parke County Covered Bridge Festival, including dates and attractions, check out Parke County's dedicated web page!

Covered Bridges in the Wild

If it’s your first time, we definitely recommend taking your whole group with Lafayette Limo: you won’t get lost, and of course we can stop whenever you’d like to get out and take pictures of covered bridges you spot from the road! The Parke County website mentioned above has a list of the covered bridges in the area, so you can create your own tour. We’re happy to do the driving!

Great for Historic Interest Groups!

The Covered Bridge Festival is of particular interest to historical societies, or for older generations. Not only do you see these impressive structures that have lasted over a century up close, but you can also participate in craft fairs and antiquing. Many vendors at the fair still hand-craft their wares the way their ancestors did when the covered bridges were built.

Make a Weekend of It: Other Activities around the Festival

If you’re feeling ambitious, why not make a weekend of it? Take your whole family, or a big group, out to experience the parks and outdoor recreation available all around Parke County. For more information on what else there is to do out there in this season, check out the Parke County website.
