Looking to share a day of fun with your family? Maybe it’s time you experience nature's magic kingdom - just an hour or two from the DC area - at Shenandoah Caverns Family of Attractions.
Welcome to a world of wonder way down UNDER GROUND in the beautiful and historic Shenandoah Valley!
Since 1922, Shenandoah Caverns has thrilled visitors from around the world. Explorers of every age and ability will discover an underground world of wonder. Your professional guide will lead your family on a one-hour circuit tour through the caverns' 17 soaring rooms - where stalactites hold tight to the ceiling and stalagmites grow from the floor in the comfortable year-round 56-degree cavern.
You’ll learn how Shenandoah Caverns' spectacular formations came to be, how they were discovered, why they are so colorful and so breathtaking. You'll see the famous "Breakfast Bacon" limestone formations...so unusual they appeared in National Geographic magazine. You'll be delighted by SOARING rooms like Long View Hall. And you'll be amazed at the variety of unique, intricate and unexpected formations like Capitol Dome, Diamond Cascade, Caldross Castle and Rainbow Lake.
Worried about the little ones dealing with all those steps? Don’t be. Shenandoah Caverns is the only cavern system in the area with elevator service! With no stairs and level gravel walkways, only the sights are breathaking!
Surface from nature’s underground theme park and get some great grub in the quaint Caverns Cafe where a nickel can still get you tunes from the jukebox, the cherry coke is homemade and the root beer is best served as a float from their old time soda fountain in operation since 1957. (Open from Memorial Day through Labor Day.)
And make time for a stroll down Main Street of Yesteryear. Wind your way down Main Street to see windows filled with fully-restored antique displays such as a three-ring circus of clowns, jugglers, twirling elephants and ferocious tigers powered by 40 antique motors that generate the action under the big tent!
At American Celebration on Parade, stand where Presidents have stood among a huge collection of magnificent parade floats spanning generations of one of America’s favorite pastimes - the Parade! Over 27 stunning parade floats from the Tournament of Roses Parade and Presidential Inaugurals are on display. Note: American Celebration is open seasonally. It is closed for the winter season and will re-open weekends beginning at Easter.
On your way out, stop by the Yellow Barn, the Valley's newest attraction and entertainment venue. It offers visitors a whimsical look at our agricultural heritage and rural life with historical displays that include restored antique farm wagons, equipment, carriages and vehicles. See model trains in motion, enjoy the mini farm and the Live Beehive observatory.
Nature, nosh, nostalgia and no long lines... a visit to Shenandoah Caverns is a sure way to have some family fun!
