    Outstanding. We only went to pass some time pre flight and stayed way longer than anticipated. The whole experience was marvellous. The only thing missing is a photo book at the gift shop as there's no way any camera can do it justice.

    This is an awesome hike with beautiful views at the top that is not strenuous and doable for many hikers. The parking lot is right next to Skyland Lodge; if you are staying at Skyland, you could even walk there. I highly recommend going early. We hiked this on a Thursday morning in early Oct. We started around 9:15. An hour later when we finished the parking lot was 3/4 full and we saw a bunch of people heading up the trail. Meanwhile, we were able to get the summit totally to ourselves!

    The trail is about 1.6 miles total and my watch said just under 300 ft of elevation gain. It can be rocky in places and there are a couple steep sections, but nothing technical. The summit is rocky and not very large, so it could get crowded very easily. You can do this as a loop (which we did) or an out and back if you really wanted to.

    This is actually really cool!

    It comes free when visiting the caves of luray and it shows a great number of unique and cool cars in chronoligical order.

    I only wish fhwy didnt paste "do not touch signs" all over the cars. But i guess its for a reason

    Even if you have never heard of the Dukes of Hazzard, you would have to enjoy watching other people relive their childhood memories. We were fortunate enough to attend the Sunday bluegrass concert from 2pm to 4pm. It was fantastic. There is a Saturday show as well and some of the Dukes of Hazzard have scheduled appearances so call ahead to see who will be there on your visit. Wonderful visit!

    If you're lucky enough to catch a time in the day when you reach the overlook and to have it all to yourselves this is a magical spiritual place! - Beautiful views of the valley and distant mountains, with Bald Eagles flying overhead. (And yes those are Bald Eagles, even the one's that don't have their distinctive white head and tail features yet are immature ones!)

    Started our weekend in Luray with a stop here at River Hill. So glad we did! We felt like family, greeted and welcomed warmly. If you aren’t into fruit wines, don’t come for the wine, but it was delicious! We bought a bottle of the strawberry to go; it made a great dessert later in the weekend. The whiskey, bourbon, and more (!) were wonderful, and this coming from someone who normally doesn’t like hard liquor. Thanks, Fred, for convincing me the good stuff doesn’t have to burn! :)

    First...it's not the big city zoo's....and to me that is fine. Most of these animal's are rescued animals that were pets. The owner knows alot about the care of animals that were pets and what would happen if you put these once pets in with wild animals...or in with other pets...it would not be a good thing.
    My wife and I took the Discovery Tour and we were so glad we did. The reptiles on display is stellar because there are some I have never even heard of or seen before at big zoo's. We love being able to ask questions about the animals and getting answers where as at some bigger zoo's no one is found to ask.
    It was so cool to pet a porcupine named Cuddles....feed Capuchin monkeys and a Lemur....be sure to see the Condor (a big and beautiful bird). Won't forget this place.

    My husband and I were very pleased with how beautiful this walk was. Easy paved walkway, large enough to easily pass other walkers. Loved that the you follow the creek the whole way. Saw fisherman pull some nice size trout out too! There are even cows in the loop area! Plenty of places to use restrooms/clean porta potties. Approx. 3 miles if you start at either end and walk the entire paved area, however there are plenty of parking areas to choose from. We had planned to bike it however we noticed only walkers so we decided to just enjoy the walk too.

    My daughter and I both enjoyed a wonderful flight outdoors. Patrons were helpful and gave dinner advice. The employees were equally cool and the beer delicious!

    Since it was included in the price of the caverns we visited the museum. It was small but had a lot of artifacts. Outside are six or so historic buildings that have been moved to the site, preserving them for future generations to see.

    There is a Skyland Resort itself and that is the good old stand-by historic lodge with more than basic accommodations - a nice place to stay. This site I believe is supposed to focus on the Skyland as a picturesque location and view-point. It is one of the highest elevations in Shenandoah. Easy hiking access from from the Skyland Lodge.

    Just enjoyed our second visit to the Warehouse Art Gallery which is an awesome combination of sight and sound! If you have ANY interest at all in any of the Arts, do yourself a favor and visit this wonderful Gallery! There is no charge to get in and browse around but there is a jar for donation at the door. PLEASE throw some money in when you exit so this Gallery can keep going. It's a VERY cool place!

    This is a great hike that ends in a fantastic view! We met William who was camping at the shelter up top. This is a great hike to do in the winter when Skyline Drive is closed. We've done this one a few times now.

    Loved all the little shops combined into one. A lot of things you don't always see in some shops. Reasonable prices on numerous things. So happy we stopped by. Found it while driving around touring Luray.
