“Neat place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

You can't miss the New River Gorge Bridge as you drive into town. Make sure you stop at the National Park service places for additional great views and maps for wonderful hiking opportunities. If you are up for it, grab a map and take the drive down to Sandstone Falls and Bluestone Lake. About an hour south of the bridge and worth the drive.

“One of the world's great bridges”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We drove across it 4 times. We drove under it once. We walked across it on the catwalk beneath it. The BridgeWalk.com was amazing. $73 per person and well worth it.

“First Visit to the Bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

One of the most intense sites I've seen. It's beautiful in the winter time, so I can only imagine what it looks like in the growing seasons. I can't believe all the people on Bridge Day that actually jump from it. Talk about adrenaline. Either way, I'm returning during the summer time to get a view of the tons of greenery during that season and I'm actually thinking of white water rafting the river at that time too. Wish me luck.
