I grew up in Virginia and have been to Natural Bridge several times over the years. We were recently in Virginia visiting my parents, and I decided it would be nice for my 7 year old to see the bridge for the first time. Seeing Natural Bridge again was not a disappointment...it's an amazing sight to see. Very majestic and... More

I have been to Natural Bridge many times in my life, and it never ceases to amaze me. If you haven't been to it, make it a place to stop in your travels, and its just a few minutes off 1-81

If you have never visited this amazing natural phenomenon you must stop by. The pictures you see of this place do not do it justice. My wife and I and our 3 month old baby went on a Sunday afternoon the day before Memorial Day. There was a good amount of people there but not too many to overwhelm you.... More

We visited Natural bridge on memorial day weekend. It was very beautiful. But be prepared to pay the entrance free which i feel is high. Since we had kids took the complementary shuttle service.Hike down is just a quarter mile. We couldn't went further the bridge as kids were very cranky. We used this opportunity for some good photo shoots.

This is a beautiful 2 mile round trip walk with a small Native American village display and two nice little waterfalls. The price of $18 a person seemed a bit excessive but we really enjoyed the beautiful scenery and walk. They do a light show on the natural bridge with biblical narration at 9 and I suppose that may add... More

Cost was $20 per person, though we got $2 off for AAA membership. Interesting rock formation. Bigger than we thought it would be so it was nice to see it. Easy walk for us, but we're big hikers. Creek runs through the grounds. Bottom line: If you have time to kill and money to spend during the daytime, this is... More

We attended the Drama of Creation presentation and it was nothing more than colored lights with music for 30 minutes, very uninspiring.

We walked all the way to the falls and toured the Monacan Indian Village as well. Truly enjoyable and spectacular!

I am glad I was able to see it. We did the whole trail which is about a mile but the waterfall at the end is unimpressive. We saw lots of elderly there. If you aren't able to walk the trail don't worry about it the Bridge is the most beautiful part. The Indian Village is well done. We weren't... More
