Things to do

Luray’s national wonders

A vast 200,000-acre expanse of protected wilderness, Shenandoah National Park is the home of some of Virginia’s most awe-inspiring natural wonders. Over 500 miles of hiking trails take you through sheltered hollows, past cascading waterfalls, and alongside flowing streams. Over 1,400 species of plants, as well as 190 types of bird and 50 different mammals, can be spotted along these paths, so nature buffs will be in their element. Picnics are a great family option, while travelers staying in one of the many pet-friendly vacation rentals in Luray can seize the opportunity to take their 4-legged pal on an outing of their own.


Lookout over Luray

The Blue Ridge mountains and Shenandoah Valley combine to provide the majestic scenery around Luray, and the Skyline Drive is the perfect way to take it all in. This 105-mile road runs the length of the Shenandoah National Park and offers 75 scenic overlooks en route. The road is also open for cyclists looking to breathe in the fresh mountain air, while horseback riding is a fantastic choice in the warmer months. Skyline Drive is particularly popular in the fall, when the autumnal colors cast this region in a breathtaking new light. Stare out west over the Shenandoah Valley, or look east for panoramas of the Piedmont.


Explaining the Luray climate

Virginia falls under the heading of a humid subtropical climate, which generally promises temperate weather and regular rainfall. The winter can get cold, with January averaging at around 31°F, so wrapping up warm is essential. That said, it’s also a fantastic time to visit the nearby ski slopes in Massanutten. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the warm spring and fall months, when the foliage colors come into their own. These periods also see Luray vacation rentals drop in price. Summer temperatures are highest, averaging at 74°F—you’ll have to book early to nab a Luray vacation rental in this busy season.

Natural features

Luray runs deep

The staggering formations of Luray Caverns were first discovered by accident, when a local craftsman’s candle was extinguished by the air leaving its main chamber, Giant’s Hall. Now visitors travel from across the globe to stand in this cave and admire Titania’s Veil, a white calcite structure that descends from the cave’s ceiling, or the Double Column, where a stalagmite and stalactite have joined together to form a 47-foot behemoth. The aptly named Dream Lake reflects these incredible features, creating a shimmering mirror image on the surface of its crystal-clear waters.
