We stopped here on a cold, damp spring day so there were few other tourists. It was nice walk to the Natural Bridge and further along to the waterfall. There were many interpretive signs and lots of scenery to photograph. The indian village area was quiet, yet worth a walk through. The shuttle bus was much appreciated to get back... More

My husband and I wen 3/29-31, it was cold, and actually snowing, but we still went. The natural Bridge is amazing. The trail is nice too, walks along a river, however most attractions were not open yet, they open in April. But it was still very nice. There is 137 steps down to the bridge and trail, but they offer... More

What beautiful scenery. The bridge was really cool looking and the nature trail surrounding the bridge was also nice. There is a make shift Indian village for you to look at but nothing special. Would recommend for a quick look and visit.

When I was working in Roanoke, VA I heard about the Natural Bridge so I decided to make a trip to see it. I'm so glad I did. At first I thought it was going to be a tourist trap, but I was surprised by what this attraction offered. the Wax museum and caverns were fun as well. Been twice... More

We were road tripping down south and started seeing signs a while away on 81. We decided to stop to check it out but just found a steep entrance cost for something they didn't create... I'm not paying 16 bucks for your wax museum and gift shop that you expected to be more popular than they were. Instead we stopped... More

The drive to Natural Bridge Virginia is nothing to take lightly. The dark and ridiculously winding mountain roads were a scary thing to do at night! Had we planned abit better, the trip to the hotel may have been abit more enjoyable. When you turn the corner from the darkness to the hotel it is an amazing sight. We were... More

It's a little pricey, but still worth the views. I-81 can become a pretty long route sometimes, I have been here a few times to break up the drive from PA to SC. The trail is pretty long to get to the actual bridge, but its well maintained and paved.
