5 Grand Cavern Rd, Grottoes, VA 24441
Are you ready for one of the oldest shown caves in the country or the world? The Grand Caverns in Grottoes, Virginia is a perfect set of caves in my opinion. Not only are they reasonably priced and accompanied by a nice gift shop, but they're a pretty easy walk (Even Amazing Andrea at age 4 managed the 70 minute walk), and they're filled with hundreds of cool structures. No other cave I've been in yet has so many structures in so few steps!
The tour guides are knowledgeable and fun, and there is just so much to see. There might be bigger, longer, or deeper caves, but this one seems about perfect to us!
It's hard to do Washington D.C. justice in less than a couple days. Still, we tried to pack in what we could in one afternoon. We actually went on Christmas Eve, and the crowds weren't too bad!
We started at The Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, then toured the National Mall, taking pictures of several monuments. There are dozens of smaller monuments and statues that we couldn't get to, as well as several monuments across the river or in other nearby areas that we couldn't reach.
Check out what we got to!
