The billboards for Skyline Caverns say "See our anthodites." That might excite a geologist, but it didn't mean much to me, but I like caverns. When I saw them, I was amazed. "Anthodite" means "flower-like." They are rare and they are spectacular.

The caverns are beautiful. Its very cold inside, so take a jacket. The tour guide was knowledgeable. But we would probably not have gone if we knew it was a "tour". We would have preferred to walk alone. It was ok

While it's not as flashy as Luray Caverns, Skyline Caverns is just as beautiful and the workers are all very friendly and informative. The caverns are beautiful, and it's definitely a great choice for a hot summer day to get out of the heat.

Fun! A bit pricey and our guide didn't seem too interested in the kids questions. Otherwise very fun to see and hear about the history.

These natural caverns, formed entirely by water, were discovered in the 1930s. The history of the discovery is quite fascinating. They are small in size compared to the massive and more well-known Luray Caverns, but they have a lot of unique things inside that our...More
