Striking? Majestic? Visit the monumental National Historic Landmark & discover why photos don't do it justice, nor words describe it, and why the awe-struck Thomas Jefferson bought it.

We were disappointed with this attraction. It is just Ok, but not worth the $18 entry fee, it is worth $5. You get down few steps from the ticketing counter and there it is, a huge rock, which is like a bridge. That's all! We were told there is a falls nearby, we walked all 2 miles, only to see... More

To start I will just say - wait until this is truly a state park. You can drive over Natural Bridge - since that is a state road. However, to walk down the path and look up at it costs you $20 per person. I know it is privately owned and all that, but it has been for years. To... More

Great natural formations, easy trails, friendly staff, light show at 9:30 is pretty neat to see. Walking shoes a must.

Pictures don't do it justice. It is an awesome sight. Worth the $20 admission fee. Take the time at the the bottom of the stairs before you go outside to walk to the bridge to read the history behind the property. Beyond the bridge on the same path is a recreation of an Indian village that is typical of the... More

I lived in Virginia for many years but never visited The Natural Bridge before - my Mother thought it was too expensive when I was a kid and I guess that stuck with me later on. It is a bit pricey - but well worth it for the beauty and serenity you encounter. We started our visit in the early... More

All the other attractions were closed: the wax museum, the toy museum... I was quite surprised. The Bridge was spectacular though, and our encounter with the park naturalists was really great!
