Travel Tips for Luray

Page Co-Op Farm Bureau

by gipper84

One way to know a town keeps its rural nature is the presence of the feed store. A good sign a town is going more urban is the loss of the feed store. My older friends tell me there used to be one in Mechanicsville before all the development came this way. The Page Co-Op Farm Bureau still exists in Luray. Feed stores have everything farmers need to feed their livestock. Some sell seeds to plant crops, fertilizer, and farm equipment.

Tipping rule on the wall

by matcrazy1

Visiting Luray Caverns I have already known that the USA is a tipping country. But I never know whether to tip someone or not, for example a guide in the caverns. In a group of local visitors it's simply as you may follow locals' behaviour. While in Rome do as Romans do.

At the end of the Luray caverns trail there is the writing in my picture. I've understood it: do tip if you can, our guides are poorly paid and deserve a tip and your tip allows us not to raise our guides salaries but may help us to maintain and improve this unique nature's wonder, right? Half a milion visitors a year, each paying $19.00 (kids $9.00) gives a lot of money. Well, half of our group including me tipped a very nice woman who was our guide.

Wear proper shoes and take warm clothes please

by Trekki

As it is an underground cavern, built by the power of water, it's quite cool and wet inside. Handrails are built everywhere to guide you through the cavern - however, make sure that you wear proper shoes (sneakers, but with a good profile).
Also take a warm sweater with you, as it is quite cold. (sweater, even if you visit the cavern in hot summer !)

Dayton is south of Harrisonburg. The market is not as good as the one we have in Annapolis, but there is a cooking supplies store that is out of this world.

First US mass-produced automobile

by matcrazy1

Oldsmobile Curved Dash Runabout from 1904 was the first US mass-produced automobile manufactured by the Olds Motor Vehicle Company in Lansing, Michigan, a company founded by Ransom E. Olds in 1897 which for some time became top US car producer. General Motors purchased the company in 1908.

The car on display in Luray still looks like a carriage. It's powered by a single-cylinder fuel engine of 7 horse power. The top speed of this car was 18.6 mph (30 km/h). It's interesting that the first speedometer to be offered on a car is on an Oldsmobile.

Look also at unusual three-wheeler - Riley Tri-Car - manufactured in Coventry, England in 1905. Riley was a British automobile and bicycle manufacturer from 1890 (later British Leyland, now the trademark is owned by BMW). The three-wheeler was a taxi-like vehicle powered by 2 cylinder, 6 horse power engine. It had to be difficult for a driver to see when he was going with a passanger seated in front of him.
