Waynesboro is surrounded by several points of interest. We’ve highlighted a few of them below:
The Blue Ridge Parkway
Known as America’s Favorite Drive – meanders 469 miles from Shenandoah National Park in northern Virginia to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina.
Grand Caverns is one of the most spectacular Virginia caverns, and has offered the public a breathtaking panorama of subterranean beauty since 1806 – making it America’s oldest show cave. Grand Caverns is a stately and powerful example of Nature’s handiwork. Gigantic stalactites point down from above. Equally imposing stalagmites thrust upward from the caverns floor.
The P. Buckley Moss Museum
Located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley in Waynesboro, Virginia. Built in 1989, the Museum closely resembles many of the larger homes built by early 19th century settlers. It is an appropriate setting for exhibiting the work of renowned artist Patricia Buckley Moss.
The seven Natural Chimneys tower as much as 120 feet above the pastoral terrain of the Shenandoah Valley, offering onlookers a sight unrivaled in majesty. Viewed from one angle, the formations resemble enormous chimneys standing in bleak contrast to the greenery of the Valley. Take a few steps, though, and chimneys are transformed into the massive turrets of a foreboding medieval castle.
A 105 mile (169 km) road that runs the entire length of the National Park Service’s Shenandoah National Park in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, generally along the ridge of the mountains. The scenic drive is particularly popular in the fall when the leaves are changing colors. Annually, over two million people visit the Skyline Drive, which has been designated a National Scenic Byway.
The Wildlife Center of Virginia
Formed in 1982 to provide quality health care, often on an emergency basis, to native wildlife. Since 1982, the Wildlife Center has treated more than 50,000 wild animals, representing 200 species of native birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians.
