So this weekend, my girlfriend Stephanie and I are driving to Luray, Virginia for NBeast, the New Beetle East car show. Luray is in central Shenandoah Valley in north west Virginia, In the Appalachian Range between the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains. Aside from being a beautiful landscape, the valley was also has Civil War and Revolutionary war sites.
Some of the area attractions are:
The Luray Caverns, a U.S. Natural Landmark and the largest and most popular of the caverns in Eastern America, featuring well-lighted paved walkways, cathedral-size rooms with ceilings 10 stories high filled with towering stone columns and crystal-clear pools, and the world’s only Stalacpipe Organ. There is also a huge hedge maze. I will be taking my camera.
And Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park. US 211 east, Luray 22835. A scenic, historic drive open year-round. Stretches the length of the park (105 miles), offering overlooks with widespread views to east and west. We probably won’t be able to take the skyline drive due to time considerations, but from what I hear, it’s amazing.
And then of course, the reason we’re going is the car show itself, which should be huge fun, especially since lots of Stephanie’s friends will be there. I can’t wait. We’re staying in the Luray Caverns Motel, which promises some great views.
