Local Attractions

Activities in the Shenandoah Valley

Luray Caverns

By far the biggest and the best (and most expensive of course). Great hedge maze, superb car museum, and a new local history museum.

Skyline Caverns

Much smaller and more intimate, avoid the crowds

Shenandoah National Park

A 197,000 acre mountain wonderland. Great vistas from Skyline Drive and wonderful hiking trails.


Many options along beautiful old route 11 from Strasburg to Harrisonburg passing through many little towns preserved when traffic was diverted to Interstate 81 forty years ago.

Horseback Riding

A number of liveries in the Valley let you exercise your backside

Massanutten Water Park

A large new indoor/outdoor water park open year round

Civil War Battlefields

The Civil War raged in the Shenandoah Valley, Winchester alone changed hands 72 times.
