Luray Caverns welcomes visitors all winter long

As winter brings beauty and cold weather to our region, you can find spring-like temperatures at this natural U.S. landmark.

Underneath the northern Shenandoah Valley, Luray Caverns is always 54°, regardless of the temperature outside. Half a million people annually enjoy the pleasant climate within the caverns full of ancient formations (including this Frozen Fountain of stone) in beautiful natural colors.

The weather above ground does change. The air is crisp and clear, with perfect views of the Shenandoah Valley. Between the Blue Ridge and Massanutten Mountains and graced by the Shenandoah River, this National Park area holds a unique appeal even in winter. 90-minutes southwest of Washington, D.C., and open daily, Luray Caverns has warmly welcomed millions every season since its discovery in 1878.
