Grand Caverns, formerly known as Weyer's Cave, is located in the central Shenandoah Valley in the town of Grottoes, Virginia, United States. A limestone cavern, it claims the distinction of being America's oldest show cave, in operation since 1806.
In 1973, the National Park Service designated the cave a National Natural Landmark in recognition of its shield formations and other features, such as flowstone, stalactites, and stalagmites.

  • This was my first time going to the grand caverns, my second time exploring a cave but let me just say this was the absolute BEST tour I have EVER been on. Our tour guide was Michael and I just could not get over with all the knowledge he knew about every little detail of that beautiful cave. Not only did he explain everything clearly he made the whole experience FUN. And most importantly he was very good nice and sweet to my 5 year old son who has never been in a cave before. We are already planning our next trip for the adventure tour ONLY if Michael is our tour guide again 🤣 what a wonderful experience he made it for all of us. I highly recommend anybody who books a tour to request him!!!!!
  • Amazing! It's just crazy to think about how old these formations are and how many years it took for them to form. Our guide, Lizzy, shared history and facts while keeping the tour fun. All the caves, formations, and rocks were just so fascinating. Nature is just so amazing!
