Cabin Capital of Virginia

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.
Gallery On Madison and Shenandoah Valley Artworks are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at R.H. Ballard Shop & Gallery and Warehouse Art Gallery. When in Luray, make a side trip to see Grand Caverns in Grottoes, approximately Grottoes away. And it doesn't end there: explore the fascinating underground world of Luray Caverns, stroll through Elkwallow Picnic Area, trek along Stony Man Mountain Overlook, and get outside with Outdoor Activities.
