This wasn't the only large statue on the grounds. There was a dinosaur, a clown, and a few others scattered about. The property is lovely and there are areas to have picnics.
These old displays are absolutely amazing! Most were animated. My favorite was the holiday scene on the bottom left. I wish I had gotten more photos of it, but the lighting and the fact that the displays are behind glass make it difficult to get good pics.
The bears are the first large display you come to and definitely the largest! Of course I managed to get photos of cute bunnies. I love the expressions on the top bunnies' faces!
I love the cavern's little elf mascots! The sign on the left is above the stairs leading down to the cavern. We didn't have to use the stairs, though, because Shenandoah Caverns is the only caverns in the state that have elevator service!
I had no idea it was illegal to touch the rock formations, but knowing it was forbidden made it extra hard not to touch anything! See the cool rock formation in the lower right photo? They call that bacon and I think you can see why!
If you ever get in the area of Shenandoah Caverns, you need to make sure you set aside time to visit! It's totally affordable and full of things to see. If this post doesn't convince you, check back tomorrow. The parade floats are a must see!!
