I stopped in here when driving through on a business trip. I enjoyed the walk. It's a short walk to the bridge. If you can't walm downstairs well, you can take a shuttle bus. It was a nice fall day and not a lot of visitors. The Native American reenactment had closed for the season . The price was a... More

...I can say I've seen it. We went to the light show...that was cheesy at best. They said it was the same one from the 1920s. I believe it! I enjoyed the music...but was not expecting it to be the Bible story about the creation of the universe. We returned during the day the next day and everything past the... More

I wish I'd done this a long time ago. I've heard about this place all my life and finally got there to see it. The bridge is staggeringly majestic. I'm not sure words can do it justice. I was awestruck at the beauty and the wonder of it all. There is a long path to walk, not too difficult even... More

The renovation needs a renovation! This beautiful hotel has the potential to be a four/five start hotel...but it's not.

This is a must see. And if your lucky enough to be there on a Friday stick around for the seafood buffet ( all you can eat ) it's great!! Crab legs are so good!!! Staff is friendly and the gift shop has a lot of beautiful things as well.

Seeing Natural Bridge is something everyone should do if possible, but take the time to learn about it from the staff / reading material. Like the Grand Canyon, pretty amazing what water can do over time...

natural bridge, virginia is a special place for those who are looking for a simple yet inspiring experience. If you stay at the hotel during nice weather get a room with a patio. It is worth the extra money. Do not bring small children, they will only ruin the experience for you. Be sure to walk the town of Lexington... More

In January 2014 we planned an enormous trip from NY to Vegas. Longing for a well overdue encounter with nature. We decided to travel through the beautiful Appalachian mountain range and stay in some remote lodges. On our journey we kept an eye out for roadside attractions and oddities. To our excitement the signs led us to the natural bridge.... More

We went in October and the colors were beautiful. The local hotels have 5 dollar off coupons or you can get 10% off with AAA, military, or AARP. Otherwise the price is $18. The visitor center is worn down and the rest rooms are small and outdated. We took the steps down but there is a shuttle bus. When we... More
