One Of The 7 Natural Wonders Of The World

This nature's wonder of western Virginia is marketed as one of the seven natural wonders of the world, but this refers to a mention on an old list of seven natural wonders of the modern world. Anyway it's worth a visit and there are many more attractions in Natural Bridge especially for children. Welcome to my tips.

The Natural Bridge was a sacred site of the Native American Monacan Indians. During the 18th and 19th century guests from all over the world came to see it and took day trips on horseback or horse drawn carriages to explore the countryside. Well, they didn't know nature's wonders of the West (say Utah), or maybe couldn't get there so easily.



Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nature, mysterious legends, history, Indian culture to explore
  • Cons:Nothing compare to nature's wonders of the West
  • In a nutshell:A miracle in stone higher than Niagara Falls

    This looks to be a real green area and foliage wonderful. Your pictures & comments are great. It contrasts my last trip to Natural Bridges & MOab area of Utah where it was desert and dry, but wonderful rock. colors. I invite you to take A look.

    This seems to be a very pretty area. I had not heard of this natural wonder. Good advice, slippery when wet.

    I'm proud of you for taking the steps instead of the shuttle. That's a sign of an adventureous traveler. This pages brought back many good memories of my visit to Natural Bridge some years ago.
