Virginia is home to many scenic vistas, both above ground and below! There are numerous caverns throughout the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah Valley. Probably the most popular is Luray Caverns, but many others have just as spectacular views. One of our favorites is Grand Caverns in Grottoes, VA.
Located only about 1/2 hour away from Cabin Creekwood, Grand Caverns is the oldest show cave in America, open to the public since 1806!
The caverns include Cathedral Hall, 280 feet long and 70 feet high, as well as other impressive rooms filled with unique cave formations. The caves also are home to 230 verified Civil War soldier signatures.
In addition, the Grand Caverns grounds include an Olympic-sized swimming pool, a mini-golf course, five picnic shelters, and more than 2.5 miles of hiking and biking trails.
You’ll find Grand Caverns east of I-81 between Staunton & Harrisonburg. Guided tours are given between 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily April 1 through October 31. The grounds are open from 7:30 until sunset. For more information, visit their website at www.grandcaverns.com.
