The Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls, Mass., near the Mohawk Trail in the Berkshire foothills, affords visitors views from just about every perspective. Four hundred feet of more than 500 varieties of flowers, shrubs and vines -- and a splendid view of the picturesque Deerfield River -- results in a virtual horticultural and naturalist paradise just outside one of New England's most quaint downtown villages. Starting just off the Norman Rockwell-like street main street of Shelburne Falls and ending up in revitalized Buckland -- with a food coop, restaurants, an ice cream shop, street musicians and more -- the Bridge of Flowers is a one-of-a-kind attraction. This former trolley bridge is solely dependent on the donations of from the public and the work of local volunteers, with colorful displays spanning from April to October. It's really the ultimate place for fans of gardens, bridges, water views, nature, scenery and travel landmarks!

The Bridge of Flowers is located off Wilson St., downtown.
