Caverns

Lunch at Caverns I had a fabulous day with our friends the Selznick’s. We started out at Shenandoah Caverns. We had a great tour guide. They have great stories and names of the formations. The kids liked seeing the bacon, pancakes, the Capital Dome and wedding couple. The guide was great at turning on and off the lights for effect and overall a great tour. After the tour we had lunch at the on site cafe. It was simple food but everyone seemed to enjoy it. The really enjoyed the soda that is bottled there. I brought snacks for myself; it was ┬ánot gluten free friendly. We went to see the store front windows which were interesting but not spectacular. We then went down the hill to the America’s on Parade museum. It has floats that were in Inaugural Parades and other big parades. The floats were fantastic and the kids enjoyed getting on some. ┬áThe last stop was the Yellow Barn which is basically shopping and we could have skipped that. All of that is included in one ticket price and well worth the money.

We then went to the Route 55 Chip factory. The kids loved sampling all the chips and they have windows were you can see the chip making process. The last stop was a covered bridge right down the street which ended up being the highlight of the day because we let the kids get in the river with their clothes on. They had a blast. It was another great day in Virginia.
