Situated in the Shenandoah Valley, Luray, founded in 1812, is the county seat of Page County, Virginia. It's a small town with population of about 5,000 people and two-hour drive from Washington D.C. Luray is most known among tourists for Luray Caverns discovered in 1878. Each year, more than 500,000 visitors explore the spectacular underground wonder and the adjacent Car and Carriage Caravan of historic vehicles. From the very beginning, discoverers and everybody else who visits this natural wonder are stunt by the beauty of an eerie world of stalactites and stalagmites sparkling in the light whether it's a candle, or flashlight or an artificial illumination system installed now in the cavern.
