Shenandoah Caverns, Part 2

November 14, 2012 Leave a comment

In order to attract return visitors and new visitors, Shenandoah Caverns offers not just an opportunity to explore God’s marvels 300 feet underground, but several additional exhibits:

  • American Celebration on Parade is a fascinating collection of parade floats and inaugural props
  • Main Street of Yesteryear is a wonderful collection of animated displays depicting American culture, characters, and stories
  • The Yellow Barn is an events center and antique mall combined.

I visited the first two; time prevented me from exploring the Yellow Barn. The exhibits are perfect for a family and children. One can easily spend an hour or two viewing these exhibits, and a most enjoyable full morning or afternoon for a complete tour of the caverns plus all exhibits. The grounds provide space for family picnics to complete a full day of adventures and activities.

Shenandoah Caverns, Part 1

November 14, 2012 Leave a comment

Caverns have always held somewhat of a fascination for me. While I don’t like the idea of crawling around on my belly in total darkness, I do find “civilized” caverns interesting. Shenandoah Caverns is one of these “civilized” caverns. In fact, it’s quite well developed with lighting and an elevator.

As with all caverns, a tour guide takes you through the caverns and points out the various formations and features. My tour guide was most knowledgeable and helpful in making the cavern tour a memorable experience.

Shenandoah Caverns is located in Virginia on I-81 at exit 269 and is definitely worth a visit.
