There is so much to do in Luray & Page County that the hardest part is deciding where to start.
When the weather is nice, you’ll definitely want to get out on the Shenandoah River.
You can go in a canoe, a kayak or float in a tube. On a hot summer day, being on the river is a perfect way to cool down. You can splash your friends and maybe even jump in for a swim. Have fun and be safe.
You have probably heard plenty of fish stories from family members.
This may be your chance to catch a big one yourself. Lake Arrowhead, the Shenandoah River and other mountain streams are great places to try your luck. A local guide can even help you find a secret fishing spot. You may also enjoy roasting marshmallows over your bonfire back at your campground or cabin!
Shenandoah National Park is filled with fun things to see and do.
When you hike through the woods, you’ll discover awesome views of the mountains or you can join the Shenandoah Mountain Guides and learn how to rappel and climb rock walls. If you’re lucky, you might spot a deer or perhaps find signs of other wildlife like footprints in the dirt. The park rangers are happy to teach kids all about the plants and animals that live in the park.
You can also experience wild life at the Luray Zoo. The Luray Zoo is now home to over 250 animals. It is the only true privately owned rescue zoo in Virginia! They have been giving homes to animals for over 26 years!
Have you ever been in an underground cavern?
If not, you’re in for a special treat. A whole new world of adventure awaits underground where the rock formations are different from anything you’ve ever seen. Luray Caverns is the one of the largest and most popular caverns in the eastern United States. The walkways are paved and well lighted. You’ll never forget your underground experience at Luray Caverns.
These are just a few of the many things to do. Now that you know what there is to do, you can help your family plan a great trip. If you don’t get to try them all, you can come back another time.
