The Natural Bridge of Virginia is an awe inspiring natural wonder well worth a visit if you are traveling in western Virginia. The park includes a small water fall, a nice walk along the creek, and a small indian village. A very pleasant hour or two.

the natural bridge is an amazing place to visit. you take a great nature walk by the water and see all types of things. snakes, rabbits,fish etc. the waterfall at the end was not really worth walking a mile and a half to see. but its a great place to walk and relax sit on the rocks by the water.

This is an excellent outside attraction that has nice views for walking. Seeing land formations like this is really eye opening to the amazing things around us. Worth a trip out to the area.

I went here about a yr ago (not sure about the month) with my friends and family. When we arrived at Natural Bridge, I was breathless and could not believe the amazing sight standing before me. The Natural Bridge is very relaxing, and great for anybody. I cannot believe how massive this rock formation was. After you walk a little... More

I went to see the Natural Bridge with my friend a day ago, and it is breath-taking! There are some things that I did not like about the Natural Bridge: 1) As soon as you get down the stairs and past the little dining area, the Natural Bridge is RIGHT there. You see the main attraction less than 5 minutes... More

The bridge itself and the walk are beautiful. The Native American exhibit (at the end of a long walk) is awesome, they do demonstrations of traditional tasks on occasion. I didn't care for other attractions.

The walk down the stairs to the bridge is lovely. However when you get to the bottom your senses are assaulted by the smell of greasy food from the snack shack at the head of the trail. I feel that this takes away from the beauty of the surroundings. When you pass the snack shack and turn the corner you... More

There is no question the natural bridge of Virginia is, and as long as it stands, will be a 5 star attraction for all future years. Its connection to our first and third Presidents is part of the legacy. This review is not about the natural bridge - it is about what else they advertise as part of the natural... More

The bridge itself was a sight to see. Pretty awesome. The trail up to the waterfall is long and not flop flop friendly and make sure if you have younger kids to bring a sturdy stroller with big wheels. Very nice flat rock formations in the stream along side that you can stand on and take pictures.
