The two RV Gypsies At Main Street of Yesteryear
(in the Shenandoah Caverns gift store)
Caverns Road and Industrial Park Road, Shenandoah Caverns, Virginia.

Main Street of Yesteryear gave the two RV Gypsies the opportunity to wind their way down a special Main Street (at their own pace) and they viewed windows filled with fully restored antique displays that Americans enjoyed at prominent department stores during much of the 20th Century.

Admission was included when they purchased tickets to Shenandoah Caverns. It is open all year and is located two minutes from I-81, Exit 269, five miles north of New Market, Virginia.

The two RV Gypsies strolled through "Main Street of Yesteryear" and were delighted to discover that motion detectors brought each display to life as they approached the different displays.

They started off with the story of Cinderella as they watched the fairytale come to life as Cinderella goes to the ball. Everything came to life as the two RV Gypsies walked near the displays.
