Want to know a fun fact? Did you know that Shenandoah Caverns has been giving families incredible adventures for over 90 years? That's a lot of memories created!

Shenandoah Caverns offer tours that give you a glimpse of what an incredible world lies underneath our feet. It's also the ONLY cavern in Virginia with an elevator service, so it's one of the easiest to do with families!

When you arrive, you will be taken on an hour long guided tour, that will see you navigate through a mile trek, exploring 17 rooms - each one more spectacular than the last!

Kids will be amazed at this new world they can explore and uncover. They will be surrounded by natural wonders, extraordinary crystalline formations, and incredible geology.

Keep an eye out for the amazing "Breakfast Bacon" formations - that were actually featured in National Geographic magazine because they are so unusual!

From the Capitol Dome, to Diamond Cascade and Rainbow Lake, each room offers something just as magical, and there is plenty to create amazing memories!

But once the tour is over, there is plenty to keep you entertained ABOVE ground!

The Yellow Barn offers a number of experiences, where you can look back at the agricultural heritage through artifacts such as antique carriages and farm equipment. Kids will love the goats and working beehive outside!

The Shenandoah Caverns also has an amazing display of antique department store windows, that showcase how exciting window displays were in the 1940s and 1950s - a highlight for kids!
