Virginia boasts eight caverns- all dotted down the Shenandoah Valley – each with unique features telling a different story.
The constant 50-some degree temperature of each cavern is quite welcoming on a hot, humid day, and the old-fashioned soda fountain you’ll find in one cavern gift shop just adds to the summertime pleasure.
Luray Caverns are the largest caverns on the East Coast and even include a little music. If you’ve never seen or heard the Stalcpipe Organ, put this attraction on your bucket list. The organ pipes are stalactites stretching 3.5 underground acres. I told you Luray Caverns is the largest on the East Coast, right?
Additionally, Luray Caverns has a few other attractions for families to enjoy, not the least of which is the brand new LOVE artwork crafted in a log cabin style!
Not to be left out in the heat is Shenandoah Caverns just down the road from Luray Caverns. June 29th they’re unveiling one of our original oversized LOVE artwork pieces that will be on display through the July 5th. It’s their way of showing appreciation to military families.
Along with LOVE and the caverns, see American Celebration on Parade and the other attractions at Shenandoah Caverns.
