The Natural Bridge & Caverns

Less than 5 miles away is one of Virginia's most cherished natural wonders, The Natural Bridge. Rockbridge County derives its name from the formation. George Washington surveyed the area for Lord Fairfax and Thomas Jefferson purchased the "rock bridge" from King George III for twenty shillings on July 4, 1774 to ensure it was available to the public. The Natural Bridge has enormous proportions. It is described as being 90 feet long, 150 feet wide at one end and 50 feet wide at another. Your admission includes a visit to the Monacan Indian Living History Village, a Drama of Creation light show on the bridge in the evening, the wax museum, the butterfly room, and more.
