I had read tripadvisor reviews recommending stopping at the Bennington Welcome Center. The reviews were correct. The helpful staff gave us directions to the local covered bridges and where to bird watch.

A wealth of information from friendly staff that know Bennington. I had no idea there was so much to see and do in town. Her excitement and love of the area was evident and infectious... She made me anxious to get out and start exploring!
