My husband and I were very excited about bringing one of our granddaughter's and my niece to Howe Caverns, but we were disappointed in the actual caverns. It's not that it was bad, because it wasn't. It just wasn't as exciting as we expected. The caverns in Shannondoah Valley were a lot more exciting.
The mining for gems and cracking of Geodes was pretty cool, but it only took up a small window of time.
The restaurant was very nice and the food was good. Especially the sweet potato fries. All of the staff were wonderful and seemed very knowledgeable about the caverns.
There were some outdoor activities that we unable to experience due to rain. That may have made a difference.
