Local Attractions

The Shenandoah Valley area around Chalet High offers a wide variety of entertainment and dining options. We are always interested in adding to our list, so please let us know if there are great places which should be included.

Meems Bottom Covered Bridge:
Just south of Mount Jackon, the longest remaining covered bridge in Virginia stretches 191 feet in a single span carried by the famous wooden Burr Arch. Meems Bottom Bridge was constructed in 1892-93 by Franklin H. Wissler to provide a more convenient access to his apple orchards and Strathmore Farm. Mr. Wissler deeded the bridge to the Virginia Highway Department in the 1920’2 in return for assumption of its maintenance. It was placed on the Virginia Landmark Register and the National Historic Register in April 1975.


The natural wonder of spectacular underground caverns is on full display across the Shenandoah Valley.

Luray Caverns:
Since discovery in 1878 by a tinsmith and a local photographer, visitors by the millions have made Luray Caverns the most popular cave in Eastern America and an internationally acclaimed destination.

Shenandoah Caverns:
Discovered accidentally in 1884 by railroad workers during the construction of the Southern Railway through the mountains, Shenandoah Caverns was opened to the public in 1922. The Shenandoah Caverns has a mile-long guided tour and is the only cavern in Virginia that has elevator access.

Endless Caverns:
According to local legend, Endless Caverns was discovered in October 1879 by two boys out hunting rabbits on the property of Ruben Zirkle. Following the discovery, the Zirkles began doing candle lit tours through the cave. In 1919, the cave was fully electrified.
