Natural Bridge of Virginia

15 Appledore Lane
Natural Bridge, VA 24578


The immensity is startling...the majesty is striking. Twenty stories of solid rock, carved by the fingers of nature---Virginia's Natural Bridge.

Discovered by Monacan Indians; treasured by an awestruck Thomas Jefferson who purchased it from King George III of England; surveyed by a young George Washington; traversed by Civil War soldiers - this great stone monument is a looking glass of history.

Gentle breezes stir and the mammoth archway whispers stories of America's origins. Elevate your senses as you pass the sheer walls along the beautiful and serene Cedar Creek Nature Trail.
Surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains and easily accessible off the Blue Ridge Parkway, see this sentinel of Shenandoah Valley in its beautiful natural setting. The Natural Bridge is open year round - see it in all four seasons.
Located in Natural Bridge, Virginia, just off I-81 and Exit 175, this popular Virginia attraction and National Historic Landmark is one of the oldest attractions in the U.S. and a 'must see' destination.
