A must see. The walking path is peaceful and beautiful. The narration about the Natural Bridge was wonderful. Even if you have seen several pictures of the Natural Bridge, you won't be prepared for the spectacular sight. We are going back to see the presentation at 8pm.

worth seeing and enjoying the area. THe combo ticket includes the wax museum which was closed and the light show which really isnt worth it so think about only getting the bridge ticket if the other attractions arent open.

This is an amazing work of art and I enjoyed visiting the Natural Bridge. This attraction is the most historical place that I have every seen. There is an Indian village to explore and other museums to see. A wax museum, a toy museum, and the caverns are a few of the attractions at the Natural Bridge. I would go... More

$18 per person to get in? You've got to be kidding. Unfortunately we really wanted to see it - so reluctantly paid the entry fee and waltzed down the hill. The first sight of the arch was impressive although it was somewhat cheapened by all the benches and picket fences at the base. Beyond that, nothing else here is really... More

The bridge itself is an awesome site and the highlight of the visit, but the rest of the sites on the Cedar Creek trail (Indian village, waterfall, views along the creek) are also well worth your time. Don't rush your visit here; give yourself some time to enjoy. The sound and light show in the evening is beautiful. We definitely... More

The bridge was formed when a cavern collapsed. They say George Washington surveyed the site for Lord Fairfax and you can see the initials GW carved into the side of the bridge. I'd seen pictures but once I saw it in person I knew the pictures didn't do it justice. It's really something to see. The walkway along the water... More

Huge bridge that pictures doesnt do it justice. You must see it to appreciate the beauty. The price seemed a little steep at $16 after military discount. It was a very good walk to enjoy the other items the park had to offer. Waterfall, cave, indian vilkage, and lots of greenery. A plus is they had a shuttle service if... More

This is a great place to visit if you enjoy walking and natural sites. Take the short presentation to know more about how the place developed. It is so peaceful and you can stop and listen to the water, the trees, etc. It has an area where you can stop and learn about the village and how people were living... More

Amazing natural creation, huge !!! Calm and spacious walkways to sight-see and just relax in the splendor ! As you walk through the "arch" and travel along a slumbering stream you will visit an indian village that is remarkable. The evening light show is equivalent to the light show at Niagra Falls !!! A must see for the entire family,... More

The natural bridge is a must see. It is beautiful! Pictures don't do this natural beauty justice. While on the hike to lace falls you will pass by the Indian Village. It was very interesting to go in a take a look at that. There is a light show at natural bridge at night that is so good. I think... More
