      • If you are more into history than hops, check out our Covered Bridge Tour.  Step back in time and explore four incredible covered bridges.  Appreciate the stunning view from the Rock Mill bridge.  See the second-fastest running creek in Ohio from the Johnson and Hannaway bridges in Two Glaciers Park.  And in Arney Run Park, you’ll visit the bridge with the longest official name in the U.S.  Each one has a story that makes it unique.  Fairfield County has the most original covered bridges in the state of Ohio.  Come with us to learn about these little ‘house bridges’ and enjoy a catered lunch.
