Virginia Is Getting A Brand New State Park… And It Looks Amazing
Virginia is about to get a brand new state park. With 36 of them already up and running, thankfully there is no shortage of state parks in Virginia. This 37th will build on something that has a long-standing history with the state: Natural Bridge. Natural Bridge has been a well-known landmark since the days of George Washington. It’s one of the most iconic images of the Shenandoah Valley, and visitors from all over eagerly make the drive to see it. However, it has become a destination spot and one that is not easily accessed. With high admission fees ($20 for adults), the trend has been to visit the bridge briefly before stopping at some of the nearby attractions. Luckily things are about to change, because Natural Bridge is soon to become part of a new state park where accessibility, preservation, and outdoor education will be prioritized.
