“We’re continually on the hunt for experiences that add richness to our lives. In the spirit of the revival of road trips, we are proud to feature a monthly section featuring destinations within driving distance of Charleston. We feel that our smart and savvy readers will find these trips interesting and entertaining.

“Driving four hours and fifteen minutes East of Charleston, West Virginia brings you to Luray, Virginia, a beautiful town in the Shenandoah Valley. With the Blue Ridge Mountains as the base of its scenery, Luray is a delightful place to visit for its outdoor attractions, caverns, and unique attractions.”

“Luray is perhaps known best for two reasons: 1) its famous caverns and 2) its roads connect visitors to Shenandoah National Park.  You could say it’s a “basecamp” for the park and caverns. At first glance you may not think there’s much to do in Luray (we admit it, we didn’t necessarily think there was upon first impression) but a little investigation proved our initial thoughts wrong and we discovered there are plenty of fun and wonderful things to do in Luray, Virginia.”

Luray Shout Outs: Shenandoah National Park, Hotel Laurance, Luray Caverns, etc.
“Getting out to this part of Virginia is a special treat. The part extends along the Blue Ridge Mountains, with Skyline Drive running its length. There are natural wonders, like caverns and natural bridges and lookouts along the way, but make time for a few stops in this welcoming part of the state. In charming towns like Luray or Staunton you’ll find cute places to stay, eat, and shop, and in all, this drive—ideal for leaf-peeping in fall—isn’t so long or arduous you get worn out.”

“For Appalachian Trail through-hikers, Luray is a godsend, beginning with its informative Luray-Page County Visitors Center. Downtown’s Appalachian Outfitters stocks a wealth of hiking gear, and—along with plenty of paintings, pottery and blown glass to peruse—its Warehouse Art Gallery offers free outdoor camping space specifically for A.T. hikers. Spots such as Main Street Bakery even sell backpacked-sized meals to go.”
