Escape to a cozy Luray cabin rental sheltered by Virginia’s surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains. This city is the threshold to the famous Skyline Drive, Shenandoah National Park’s byway, which winds along the crest of the mountains. With a multitude of recreational activities, museums, and historic landmarks to explore, this historic town thrives and beckons travelers from all over the world.
Luray is known for having a humid subtropical climate, meaning the area typically sees hot and humid summers and winters that are mild to cool. July temperatures can reach the mid-80s, while winter lows are typically in the 30s. For the most comfortable weather, visit during the fall when tourists are treated to a spectacular rainbow display of fall foliage color.
Less than a two-hour drive from the Washington DC Metro area, Luray is conveniently located for a quick getaway or a week-long stay. Fly into Washington, DC and then rent a car to get to Luray. When you’re not exploring the Shenandoah Valley on foot, you’ll need the car to get around.
Things to Do
Lace up hiking boots and bring the camera for a day of fascinating underground exploration at Luray Caverns. Stalactites and stalagmites form diverse and unusual patterns throughout the caverns, prompting such names as Frozen Fountain and Giants Hall. Guided tours take visitors through different grottos that are a photographer’s delight, while the Great Stalacpipe Organ creates a symphonic melody as rubber mallets tap stalactites. The resulting sounds echo through the chamber from the most expansive instrument in the world. Musical pleasure can also be heard from the Singing Towers, where visitors have the opportunity to hear the carillon of bells emanating from the Belle Brown Northcott Memorial opposite the cavers. The bells range in size from 12.5 pounds to 7,640 pounds and are an impressive sound to hear.
Shenandoah National State Park offers unprecedented opportunities for wildlife observation and outdoor recreational activities. Hikers can embark from many of the Luray cabin rentals located along trails that wind through the pristine wilderness. Trails showcase shimmering waterfalls, pastoral valleys, and panoramic mountain views. Stony Man Mountain is a pleasant hike for those who are looking for some of the best views around, but it also has a popular rock wall for local climbers. Thrill seekers will enjoy a white water rafting trip down the river, and anglers can fish the Shenandoah South Fork River, which is known for prolific smallmouth bass catches.
If you’re not feeling adventurous, spend time at the Luray Zoo, the only true rescue zoo in Virginia. It has more than 250 different animals to see and includes a petting zoo for kids to enjoy. Also in the area are the Car and Carriage Caravan Museum and the Luray Valley Museum, which are excellent options for history buffs.
Shopping & Dining
Downtown Luray is full of unique shops and a variety of restaurants for visitors to enjoy. Pick up some eclectic jewelry at Shenandoah Moon, or take a class in silk dyeing or knitting while you’re there. Sift through items at Hunt & Peck or buy a locally made item from Countrytime Primitives & Crafts. After, feast on succulent pulled pork and tender ribs at Triple Crown BBQ or sit down for a casual meal at West Main Street Market. The River Hill Distillery is a great spot for a whiskey tasting and to pick up farm fresh foods to cook up at your Luray cabin rental.
Rise in the morning and take in spectacular sunrises over the river or barbecue freshly caught fish on the porch of one of the many Luray cabin rentals. There’s something for everyone in this small town bursting with charm. Let Luray welcome you on your next visit.
