We toured the cavern today 1/4/14 and found it to be a wonderful experience as far as the formations go. The only thing we found lacking was our young tour guide Travis. He had an attitude and mono tone voice that told you he wanted to be anyplace else but there giving our tour. His lack of enthusiasm was only surpassed by his inattention to his guests and their safety. In several places the ceiling was so low as to be a head injury hazard. We were given no notice and were lucky when no one received a bump on the head as we passed.
All in all the cavern is loaded with many interesting features. The Shield formations are quiet interesting. Been nice to have learned a bit more about them. Hopefully some one at the cavern will read this and make some changes in the attitude of their guides....

The Caverns is definitely something to check out. Very interesting how these caverns form and it is a super special to do during a hot summer day. It is very cool, so you might need a sweater or coat. They have very neat rooms in the caverns and its absolutely beautiful. Outside the caverns there is a pool and putt putt area. They even have picnic areas and the river runs through there, so you could even fish. They also have a playground for kids.

If you are traveling through Virginia, Grand Caverns is well worth a visit. It is a gorgeous cavern system and the tour was great. My husband and I love touring caverns and this one was definitely worth the entrance fee.

This is an amazing place. And the gift shop has a DVD of the new sections that can't be visited. Everyone was friendly and helpful. This is an easy place to get to if you are on the main road traveling through the area.

Grand Caverns is the oldest show cave in the country. It's been open since 1806 and Thomas Jefferson even rode his horse over from Monticello to visit it. The caverns are about 54 degrees all year round, so you may want a jacket. I go in the hot hot summer, and it feels so good in there on a 90 degree day. The caverns have these formations called shields that are pretty much unexplainable and there are more of them here than anywhere else in the country. I think it's like 250 and many are unbroken. The Union soldiers hid from the Confederates here and, in a different campaign, the Confederates hid from the Union. The soldiers even wrote their names on the walls. There's a large "room" in the caverns that they held balls in during the 19th century. As you can tell, I go often, I even have part of the tour memorized I believe. My extended family used to hold it's reunion there so I went every year for that. Now, there aren't any reunions, so I go with my husband when we visit my hometown. It's actually a great place for reunions, you have the caverns, a pool, putt putt golf, a hiking trail and a few shelters. If you're into bluegrass, there's a festival in the fall as well. Visit, you'll be glad you did.
