It was a tough call on whether to put this under shopping or local customs. It is a shopping opportunity, but it is more of a local event. The Farmers Market Luray happens every Saturday from March to November in the train station Parking Lot. You can find local produce in season; locally-made arts and crafts as well as baked goods.
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.
Luray Caverns - The largest and most popular caverns in the EAST. Natural Landmark, noted for its profuse variety of formations and unsurpassed natural color. From well-lighted, paved walkways, explore cathedral-sized rooms with ceilings 10 stories high - filled with towering stone columns and crystal-clear pools. Also, hear the haunting sounds of the world's only Stalacpipe Organ.
