Discovered in 1878 by local men that included Benton Stebbins, a photographer, Andrew J. Campbell, a local tinsmith, and his 13 year old nephew, Quint, the Luray Cavern is a commercial cave that attracts thousands of people yearly. Inside the cave, you will find speleothems, which are actually a system of mud flows, columns, stalagmites, stalactites, mirrored pools, flowstones, and more. The Luray Cavern is perhaps popularly known for the Great Stalacpipe Organ, a lithopone designed from solenoid fired strikers.

There are other notable formations inside the cavern, including the campanile of Pisa, and the Elfin Ramble.

Near the Luray Cavern, you can also check the Luray Singing Tower, which has 47 bells. You can also go hiking or fishing in the Blue Ridge Mountains, which can also be found near the area.
