An HEAV-Sponsored Event
Take education underground as your kids explore and learn about the geology, chemistry, and history behind the wonder of Luray Caverns. Students and families from every state are invited to attend and take advantage of this special offer.
Discover Eastern America’s largest and most popular caverns at on of Virginia’s most popular homeschool field trip locations. Luray Caverns, a U.S. Natural Landmark, is noted for the profuse variety of formations and unsurpassed natural color. From well-lighted, paved walkways explore cathedral-sized rooms with ceilings 10 stories high, filled with towering stone columns and crystal-clear pools.
