Visitor Tips and News About Shenandoah Caverns
Shenandoah Caverns claims to have the smallest post office. The fact that it is more of a counter in a much larger building probably disqualifies them. I am not much of a cave junkie, but American Celebration on Parade (included with admission) is worth the visit.[Jacob Krejci, 01/19/2010]
The admission price to Shenandoah Caverns not only includes admission to Shenandoah Caverns itself, but also allows you to explore the Main Street of Yesteryear and Celebration Station (a really weird parade museum).
The caverns themselves boast a sort of sad array of light effects, but the real fun is in all the eerie displays of parade floats and toys from old department store displays. When my boyfriend and I went to Celebration Station (in June!) we were the only people there for our entire visit. They had a giant buffalo, elephant, a number of cowboys, a train, a few presidents, and a ton more. This museum isn't small either -- it seemed to be almost the size of an average Kmart...but cleaner.[Tami, 04/19/2004]
