ROADSIDE MICHIGAN: Fisher’s Covered Bridge
There are still a few old classic wooden, covered bridges in Michigan...and this is one of 'em, not that far away.
Fisher's Bridge is located within the Deerfield Nature Center and crosses the Chippewa River near Mt. Pleasant in a beautiful setting, close to 600 acres of forests. In fact, it's so beautiful that many young (and old) couples have gotten married at the bridge...maybe it's that "Bridges of Madison County"-thing they feel...
Lots to do nearby: camp, picnic, hike, canoe, fish, bike and swim. In the winter, you can sled, toboggan, ski and snowshoe all around the area.
Even though it reeks of early 20th century, it was actually built in 1968 and made into a foot bridge in 1995 after the main structure was destroyed by a fire that some locals believe was the work of arsonists.
This is a great place for photo/ops during your Michigan roadtrip!
