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.

  • Great experience. We had to wait an hour and a half because we didn’t book ahead, but they gave us a free round of putt-putt golf while we waited. The golf was fun, and the cavern was excellent. It took a little over an hour. I would recommend these caverns to anyone.
  • If you're looking for a day trip to explore and learn this is the place to go. It has great atmosphere and learning environment for people of all ages. Not only does the offer caverns but outside activities as well. The tour was great and guided by knowledgeable people. The cavern itself was a cool experience, worth the time. When you do purchase tickets for the cavern make sure you use one of the discounts that they accept. The cover that stove is that wheelchair accessible and or stroller accessible.
