My son loved it!

We spent a weekend down in Virginia, and spent a day at the Natural Bridge attractions. I thing my son liked this place best out of all the other places of interest.

Unusual sight in the East, where the mountains are old and worn by time so that formations such s these are rare but the caves are not, the Shenandoah's are littered with them. Unteresting crystals and forests of stalagmites and stalactites plus it's always 56 degrees underground, so have a sweater handy if you come in summer.

Maybe there are grander caverns (Carlsbad comes to mind) but Carlsbad is quite a drive from Virginia. Just go and have fun and try not to rate whether Mother Nature was having a good, or bad day when she created this wonder.

Never having been to something like this before, it was breath-taking and awesome to view all the different crystals and minerals. The tour... More

AMAZING! You have to see this place. The caverns are not as big as some in the area, but fascinating and very different than the others. There is a lot to see, some science to learn, some history to see, some fun to be had. Our tour guide was cute as a button and really knew his stuff! He made... More

This is a small cavern. But it doesn't matter. If this is your first caven it will inpressvive. If you have been to many caverns this could be boring. I think features like this depend on the guide. We had a young fun guide. Tip your guide on your way out. I loved this cavern though not as spectacular as... More

The tour takes about an hour. There are several steps you have to climb to get to the lower levels. Our guide, Katy, was wonderful. She kept everyone's safety in mind and pointed out... More

If you have mobility issues you may want to think about this. It is a lot of walking especially to the end. Great places for photos and we went in Oct so the leaf change is a gift from above. Good food and a scoop of ice cream made the day. About $60 for 2 adults 1 child. 6 and... More
