      Natural Bridge of Virginia is a very old tourist attraction. It is located in the scenic Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Natural Bridge is a short drive from I-81.

      It has been designated as a Historic Landmark it’s also listed in a register of National Historic Places. Two mountains are joined together forming a natural bridge of rock.

      I found it to be an interesting place. Vistors to Natural Bridge leave the

      parking area and go into a very large giftshop area.

      You can buy tickets to the Natural Bridge and Creation Drama which is offered at night. Natural Bridge vistors buy their tickets, leave the giftshop go down several steep stairs and continue down a path past benches that are there for the drama in the evening, to view the bridge.

      It is a spectacular site. One thing of note ...

      • is that George Washsington carved his intials on to the exposed stone side of the mountain.

        This was when he was employed as a surveyor for Lord Fairfax. Continuing down the path you see the summerhouse restaurant.

        In the parking area there visitors have the option of catching a bus back to the vistor center. The rest of the walk winds by the Lost River and leads to better

        views of the bridge.

        You can walk past a replica of a Monacan village and a cavern the Lost River runs under the bridge and through the cavern. At the end of the path the vistors take underneath the bridge itself is a waterfall which is quite impressive.

        The trail winds back the way you came,and as tired vistors My husband and I opted for the shuttle back to the Vistor Center.
