“A must add on the bucket list”

The Natural Bridge of Virginia
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Owner description: Striking? Majestic? Visit the monumental National Historic Landmark & discover why photos don't do it justice, nor words describe it, and why the awe-struck Thomas Jefferson bought it. Follow the creekside trail to Lace Falls. Gather around Interpreters in the Monacan Indian Village. Make it a brief visit, or a day, or overnight on-site; packages available. Just 15 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway; off I-81, exits 175 & 180.

“A must add on the bucket list”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Truly amazing and lots to do. Caverns, bridge, and wax museum were all a lot of fun. Stayed at the Natural Bridge hotel and got a great combination deal with all attractions included as well as a great hot buffet breakfast.

“It's a long walk”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

We visited The Natural Bridge on a hot August day. The walk to the Bridge was pleasant and we enjoyed a little history of the rock. Beyond that, the waterfall was a huge disappointment. It's definitely not Niagara Falls!

“Beautiful (but pricey)!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

It is well worth the trip to come here and see the Natural Bridge. But I have to think that if they didn't combine the cost of admission with so many other useless attractions (like a wax museum), perhaps it wouldn't cost so much. Even so, I am glad we went. Make sure to listen to the free talks that occur regularly in the seating area near the bridge.

“Great Family spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is worth going to see. The views are beautiful and peaceful. The hike is strenuous, but there is a ski lift available for a fee. I would have loved to have stayed in the lodge but their rooms were booked. Worth the stop.

“Stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

I loved the hike and the scenery! I did not like having to drag my kids out of the gigantic gift shop you must go through upon entry and exit. The deli was very good. I appreciated the fact that there is NO SMOKING along the trail!!!
