Our Visit to Luray Caverns in Virginia

Our last day staying on Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park, we drove down to visit Luray Caverns.
This is where the Caverns were discovered in 1878
The price is $24.00 for adults and $12.00 for kids ages 6-12.  Tours start every twenty minutes.

The air in the caverns was cool, but we had on shorts and t-shirts and were fine.  It was also a very hot day outside, so inside was refreshing.

There was much to see, it was a good tour.

After, the tour you can look around in the huge gift shop or go into the garden maze or the adventure park and more for an added price.  We did not do that.

We walked over to the Luray Valley Museum.  The Museum is included in the admission price to the caverns.

 This was a very beautiful area to walk around.  7 acres recreation of a small farming town.

This area has a lot to learn about along with many Civil War sites.  I would love to come back and do some more exploring.
