Eight caverns in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley offer spectacular creations formed one drip at a time. Luray Caverns contain vast chambers decorated by 10-story high columns. Shenandoah Caverns have breathtaking sights (and an elevator). Endless Caverns are mapped for more than five miles. Skyline Caverns lie near the northern entrance to Skyline Drive; Grand Caverns offer a panorama of subterranean beauty and Natural Bridge Caverns are the deepest public caverns on the East Coast. Dixie Caverns were purportedly found by a dog, and Gap Caverns sit in Cumberland Gap National Historical Park.
