The Remarkable Bridge In West Virginia That Everyone Should Visit At Least Once
As West Virginians, one our our biggest pride and joy landmarks is the world-famous New River Gorge Bridge. At the time it opened to traffic in October of 1977, it was the longest single span arched bridge in the world (it’s currently ranked number four). It’s among the most photographed of places in the entire Mountain State. Are you among those that have visited and captured your own memorable moments at the bridge?
