Grottoes, Virginia can be found along Route 340. The southestern Rockingham County and northwestern Augusta County town straddles the county line. You can see the Blue Ridge Mountains when traveling throughout the town, but they are especially visible at the town’s park—Mountain View Park. This incorporated town is located approximately 20 minutes southeast of Harrisonburg and 15 minutes north of Waynesboro.
The town of Grottoes is home to 2,700 residents and a national natural landmark—Grand Caverns. The Grand Caverns are among the oldest caverns in the country, and they’re ranked the “#2 Cavern to Visit in America” by Parade Magazine.
The Grand Caverns grounds, which sit along the banks of the South River, are host to a variety of activities, including the caverns—of course—but also walking trails, exercise stations, playground equipment, a pool, multiple pavilions, a gift shop, a farm stand in the summer, and dinosaurs. You heard it here. Yes, there are dinosaurs in Grottoes, VA! The caverns are also rich with history, as there are hundreds of Civil War soldiers’ signatures decorating the cave walls.
Since the caverns were discovered in 1804, not only has Grand Caverns expanded, but the town of Grottoes has also grown tremendously. A railroad, a branch of the regional library, a town hall, a town park, a strip mall, an elementary school, a grocery store, restaurants, gas stations, and more can be found in the small but thriving town.
Those who live in Grottoes have plenty of opportunities to explore on weekends. They can take advantage of the numerous amenities at the town park, go hiking using a local back entrance to Shenandoah National Park, go kayaking, canoeing, or fishing, or even visit the caverns!
