Explore the Shenandoah Valley – Lodging Destinations
Unlike the Washington DC Metro area, the Shenandoah Valley is easy to drive in as a visitor. You have one main roadway in Interstate 81, but many smaller roads with no rush hours and spectacular views. It is fun to drive through the small towns like Woodstock, Virginia or Shepherdstown, West Virginia. Shepherdstown is nationally known for its “ghost” mystery tours. There are many interesting small shops and excellent restaurants that support local farmers. Many of our towns and cities have universities that offer both performances and sporting events.
Both Winchester and Harrisonburg, Virginia are multi – days visits. Both offer children’s museums such as Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum and Explore More Discovery Museum. The George Washington Hotel provides luxurious lodging and even has their own restaurant on premises, George’s Food and Spirits. Both are named after our first President who spent his early years in Winchester as a surveyor. Harrisonburg is the largest agricultural hub in the valley. Harrisonburg has been named by National Geographic as one of the Best Mountain Bike Towns.
Massanutten Resort is one the fastest growing timeshares in the United States. This amazing lodging destination is a charter member of the Trail and provides many kid-friendly activities. Many national and international visitors come to the resort since it is the closest timeshare if you also want to visit Washington, DC.
The Shenandoah Valley is also recognized as an affordable retirement region.
