Natural Bridge

Considering Virginia’s Natural Bridge appeared in many of the first “Natural Wonders of the World” lists published in the 19th and early 20th centuries, it’s certainly deserving of a spot on our list of natural wonders in Virginia’s Blue Ridge.
Once owned by Thomas Jefferson and surveyed by a young George Washington, this unique geological formation features a rich history in American culture. The iconic natural arch caps 215 feet high rock walls, spanning 90 feet across the gorge in the terrain.
Once deemed the “Bridge of God” by the Monacan tribe of Native Americans who discovered it, visitors of all ages can stand beneath the striking structure and enjoy a day filled with memorable experiences inside the adjoining Virginia’s Natural Bridge Park & Historic Hotel.
