Sometimes the bus ride can seem endless, especially when traveling with students. Sometimes you just need a break. Sometimes that break becomes vital to your sanity as the middle and high school drama unfolds in a confined space. Sometimes, it comes in the form of an underground mecca of stone formations!
If you are driving to Washington D.C. (or anywhere near the Shenandoah Valley), be sure to stop at the magnificent Luray Caverns. Located just off Route 340, Luray Caverns is the largest cavern system in the eastern United States. It’s a destination unto itself, with massive, cathedral-sized rooms, ten story-high ceilings and breathtaking natural wonders like crystal clear pools and monstrous stalactites. Paths are well-lit and easy to follow. The Caverns even boast the largest musical instrument in the world, The Great Stalacpipe Organ!
In addition to the spectacular caverns, you can wander through the Car & Carriage Caravan Museum, take a trip down memory lane at Toy Town Junction or explore the history of the Shenandoah Valley at the Luray Valley Museum. All are included in the ticket price.
When it’s time for a break and a little fun, pull in to Luray Caverns. It’s open 365 days a year, has plenty of parking and is always ready to welcome your group. A little time surrounded by the majestic underground may just bolster your mood and help get you through those last few hours on the bus!
