The Retirement Travelers visited Fayetteville, West Virginia, to do the New River Gorge National Park BridgeWalk. The New River Gorge Bridge is the longest and tallest steel arch bridge in the Western Hemisphere. It was a West Virginia bucket list item for them and one of the best things to do in West Virginia.
The BridgeWalk is a scary walk, if you have a fear of heights, but the guides do a great job with keeping everyone safely harnessed with a high tech cable system. The walk is 3033 feet on a 24” wide catwalk about 850 feet above the New River. Yikes!!!
On the way to West Virginia, they stopped in Louisville, Kentucky, to visit their newest granddaughter and walk across the Big Four Bridge. Yes, they love bridges!
