Whilst looking in our guidebook we saw a recommended attraction called 'The Natural Bridge', we approached thinking it was an attraction that we could drive under for free, merely part of the road. When we arrived in the town of Natural Bridge we initially thought we had got the wrong place - we drove around in circles seeing a hotel,... More

I had been to Natural Bridge about 25 years ago and knew my son would enjoy it, so I made it part of our college tour down south. As expected, it was a perfect stop. The Natural Bridge formation is just stunning. It is taller and wider than one would expect from the photos or from memory! There is a... More

My wife and visited Natural Bridge while staying in the Staunton area. Having been to several other natural rock bridges, we were excited for the Virginia one given its fame. While impressive, it was a little pricey ($18), and you can only walk down to see it from below since Highway 11 goes across the top. It was a nice... More

Contrary to many reviews posted here, there is a discount to AAA and AARP members. There is a sign posted by the cash register stating this and the woman who sold us the tickets asked if we had either of them before ringing us up. The bridge itself is so enormous, no picture does justice in showing how large and... More

We really enjoyed our walk at the Natural Bridge. It was quite lovely, peaceful, and it happened to be a gorgeous day. There's a small place to sit when you get to the end of the walk that we found quite tranquil and serene. The native american "camp" seemed a bit odd and trite. Don't bother getting the combo tickets... More

We are glad we went to Natural Bridge, Va and it was in a beautiful setting, We enjoyed walking back to the Bridge and seeing it and the creek and the waterfalls at the end of the trail, but why does the state of Virginia have to charge for admission. We are from Ky and have visited our Natural Bridge... More

The landmark is beautiful in the spring and late summer, but not worth the cost as several of the features they advertise and are listed on their handout, has been closed down, so even though you may have paid for the entire features online, they simply are not available. This requires miles of walking, so those with even slight limitations... More

Did it by day and night. Night lights are really good. Very well done. Professional and much better than I was expecting. Day time is great for a short wall. Very impressive place.

The bridge is a beautiful thing to see! The staff on hand were very knowledgeable about the history and had a lot to share! I feel like for what we saw the 18 dollars a person was pretty steep. They told us that it was in the works to make this area a state park so hopefully it will be... More
