Add Covered Bridges to your Oregon Bus Tour Itinerary

Whether your tour is passing through, sightseeing nearby or exploring all corners of Oregon, you’ll definitely want to pull over and stay awhile in Cottage Grove—the small town with the big heart. We’re located directly on Interstate 5, just 20 minutes south of Eugene-Springfield. Easy
off and on!

Covered Bridges Step-on Tour

(1.5 Hours) Find out why Cottage Grove is called “The Covered Bridge Capital of the West!” When you welcome one of our professional tour guides aboard your bus, they’ll take your group to five covered bridges, all within ten miles of our historic downtown. Passengers will even be able to walk across three of the bridges!

 

Sights and Sounds Along the Way

As your bus travels, your guests will see our Historic Downtown, two rivers, and beautiful Dorena Lake, the National Recreation Trail, and the Dam. Your step-on guide’s live voice will be enhanced with pre-recorded audio, introducing the colorful characters and their stories that have made Cottage Grove so special. (Please note: We’d prefer to connect to your vehicle’s PA system, which will have the best sound quality. If that’s not feasible, we can use our mobile PA system.)

Catered Meal

(1 hour) Let your passengers stretch their legs and enjoy a catered lunch or dinner inside one of Cottage Grove’s historic covered bridges. Imagine savoring a fabulous meal sitting inside the Chambers Railroad Bridge, the only covered railroad bridge west of the Mississippi River, or on the picturesque Dorena Covered Bridge perched over the Row River. We’ll provide the delicious food, tables, chairs, flatware, glasses, etc. – even a live band for background music if you like.
