One of the most beautiful commercial caves in the eastern U.S. Self-guided walking tours take approximately 45 minutes to an hour. All day Wild Cave Tours are available, for the more adventurous, by reservation only. Largest Rock, Fossil, & Gift Shop in the area. Natural History Museum features local ice age mammals as well as dinosaur exhibits. Picnic Area. Free Parking. Open Daily.
PROS: affordable with AAA discount; tour at your own pace; beautiful cave formations ; an easy 45 min stop at least; affordable and diverse gift shop; small free exhibits with mostly casts of different dinos.
CONS: people with disabilities can’t do it as it has plenty of slippery, steep stairs. Can be crowded as you are self guided so may be trouble with family pics. That long dirt road can have you worrying about damaging your tires or losing air.

PROS: beside the Confederate cemetery, Old Presbyterian Church and Carnegie building so you can hit them all in one sitting. I could see carriages from the outside the mansion looks interesting.
CONS:I guess since its free admission, the hours can fluctuate instantly. We arrived 1:45 pm but a sign said last tour was 315 pm and it was supposed to close 4 pm. A paper sign taped to the door said they closed at 1:30 pm that day we went. Limited parking spots, there were only 3 parking spots that had “museum visitors “ on it and others had cosmetology clients so I guess the rest of the parking areas you see in are for the college located beside it?

The State Professional Theatre of West Virginia featuring theatrical productions, musical concerts, literary events, children's programming, and much more year-round.
My husband loves Charles Dickens Christmas Carol so I purchased tickets and made a short weekend getaway for us to Lewisburg. While the set area and seating are very small, everything was very efficient and clean. We were surprised at the amount of cast in the production. For small town theater this group does it top of the line!

Carnegie Hall was built in 1902 by steel baron and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie as a classroom building for the Lewisburg Female Institute, later the Greenbrier College for Women. Carnegie was friends with the college president and it is 1 of only 4 Carnegie Halls in the world.
Looking from Academy Park you see the Ivy Terrace and the beautiful while columns that give the property such a stately look.Inside there is the intimate theatre with dark green iron design seating for 388 with a total capacity of just 420.There are a few poles in the theatre that really don't obstruct your concert view that much and there is a great small balcony upstairs.
There is an art gallery on the bottom floor,dance studios,classrooms,exhibit space etc. and much of the hall can be rented for events.It was stated that annually over 75,000 people enjoy this facility.Lewisburg is fortunate to have this gem.

We were running out of daylight on this visit, a beautiful stone (old) Church building and an interesting Cemetery alongside. The Church dates from 1796 and is built of local limestone & the Cemetery a year later. The graves vary from early settlers , trappers, slaves, merchants, ex-pastors, confederate & union troops. Lewisburg was Confederate but fought over and occupied by the Union on several occasions. So both parties figure prominently. Very interesting Church & surrounds.

Robert's Antiques & Wine Shop in located right in the center of the downtown historic district and is really 3 shops in 1 10,000 square foot building.

Then there is the antique shop with period furniture,some dating to the 18th century,glassware,porcelan and oriental rugs.Impressive shop.Even saw some very large wooden bars.Worth a stop.
