Nestled in the heart of the valley formed by the Shenandoah River, Luray draws visitors with a vast underground cavern system adorned with stalactites, stalagmites, and mirrored pools.
Change things up with these side-trips from Luray: Blue Ridge Hospice Thrift Shop (in Front Royal) and Shenandoah National Park (Bearfence Mountain, Old Rag Mountain Hike, & more). There's lots more to do: explore the stunning scenery at Luray Caverns, tour the pleasant surroundings at Stony Man Mountain Hike, cruise along Skyline Drive, and sample the fine beverages at Copper Fox Distillery.
