A beautiful park embedded in history.

For a journey steeped in history, nature, beauty and a healthy dose of fun, Natural Bridge, Virginia is an unexpected treat! In addition to the geological history of the natural bridge itself, it is the believed site of a Native American tribal face-off centuries before the arrival of European explorers. Also, Thomas Jefferson once owned the land on which it stands among other interesting facts - the history runs deep.

The land officially became a state park in 2016 and features beautiful waterfalls and hiking trails in addition to the bridge. The Caverns at Natural Bridge are nearby and as if that isn’t enough to keep your family busy, the Virginia Safari Park is just fifteen minutes away and is a thrill for every age.

A trip to Natural Bridge is sure to please the entire family, and if you are lucky enough to travel there on the Blue Ridge Parkway, known as “America’s Favorite Drive” it truly is as much about the journey as the destination.
