Road Trips

About LurayLuray was settled by a group of German-Swiss at the base of Massanutten Mountain along the South Fork of the Shenandoah River. Laid out in 1812, Luray was close enough to Virginia's untamed wilderness that some of its early homes contained thick stone forts within their walls to guard against the constant threat of Native American attacks. These forts, usually in the basement, were kept supplied with firewood and food and often included a tunnel that connected with a well.

Hiking, fishing and boating can be enjoyed in developed recreational areas of George Washington and Jefferson National Forests and in Shenandoah National Park, to the east.
