Shenandoah Caverns has been thrilling visitors for over 90 years. It is the only Virginia cavern with elevator service and the closest major cavern to I-81 (Exit 269). Enjoy a one hour tour through 17 rooms with a variety of unique, intricate and unexpected formations, like Rainbow Lake and Diamond Cascade. Our bacon formations are so unusual they were featured in National Geographic! After your tour visit our seasonal, authentic 1950’s soda fountain for a nostalgic trip back in time. More than just a cavern, your combination ticket includes a stroll down Main Street of Yesteryear for animated window displays, American Celebration on Parade to see spectacular full size parade floats, & our newest attraction The Yellow Barn with restored antique farm wagons, indoor beehive, carriages, vehicles, wine and gift shop. Four great attractions for one price! Open all year. Located 2 minutes from I-81, Exit 269, five miles north of New Market, VA.
