Travel Guide
Luray featuring hiking or walking and mountains as well as an individual child

Delve into eerie limestone caves, take a trip down Shenandoah River or discover the magnificent vistas on the Blue Ridge Mountains from this Virginian town.

Luray is a quaint town on the banks of Hawksbill Creek in Page County, Virginia. This Shenandoah Valley town features a charming historic downtown area and a range of exciting outdoor adventure opportunities, such as caving, whitewater rafting, fishing, boating and hunting. Use Luray as a base for your visit to Shenandoah National Park, Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains or the Luray Caverns.

Explore Luray’s downtown district to see residential, commercial and institutional buildings from the 19th and 20th centuries. Visit the Luray Singing Tower, also known as the Belle Brown Northcott Memorial, to see the impressive 1930s bell tower. Bell recitals are played on the tower’s carillon throughout the spring, summer and fall.

Opposite the bell tower, find the Luray Caverns. This awe-inspiring cave is the largest in the east United States and features natural formations. Join a tour and explore the depths of the eerie underground caves to see stalactites, stalagmites, spectacular rock draperies and alabaster columns. Experience the Great Stalacpipe Organ, a remarkable formation that can be used as a musical instrument. Nearby, find the Garden Maze, a half-mile (800-meter) hedge maze.

Experience the stunning Shenandoah Valley sights. Begin a river trip on the south fork of the Shenandoah River or Lake Arrowhead and go boating, whitewater rafting or fishing.

Discover the lush, forested landscape of Shenandoah National Park on a scenic trip along Skyline Drive. This mountain-ridge road offers Blue Ridge Mountain views and is particularly beautiful in the fall, when the color in the leaves begins to turn. Reach hiking trails from the road, including a section of the Appalachian Trail. Keep watch for black bears, deer and other wildlife when hiking.

Luray is located in Shenandoah Valley, Virginia. The nearest airport is Dulles International Airport, 78.4 miles (126.1 kilometers) away. Use Luray as a base for adventures in the outdoors during warm summers and snowy winters or as a scenic stopover on your Virginia road trip.
