This is a beautiful river. If you drive around and look at the covered bridges you'll see this river from different vantage points. There's also so many awesome photo opportunities to be had. Enjoy!

Take the Old River road from Woodstock, it runs immediately by the Billings farm, and enjoy a very pleasant drive along the river shaded by trees. Then you come to this great covered bridge with a weir running down just in front. It is a...More

Woodstock is such a quaint town and it wouldn't be complete without a drive thru this bridge. We drove thru and then pulled over to take some pictures of both the bridge and the Ottaquechee River that runs underneath of it. Absolutely beautiful! Worth the...More

Hi, My husband and I will be in tel aviv at the end of our tour. We love to bike and thought it would be fun to see the city with a bike tour. We are thinking about sat oct 10, 2015. How long are the bike tours , how much do they cost and is this date available? We are thinking of 2-3 hours to tour tel aviv. Thanks for your response Sue

The location of the traveler asking the question has nothing to do with the Ottaquechee River
