It's a super scenic place to drive through. The natural beauties are awesome. On way stoppages have nice locations to take snaps. The inside dinner restaurant food is also good with lots of varieties.

Driving was not difficult and we were able to have a nice leisurely meander from vista to vista.... More

The Shenandoah Valley, or the Valley of Virginia, is as beautiful as it is historical. The first white explorers arrived in 1671. During the Civil War, it was known as the Breadbasket of the Confederacy. Stonewall Jackson desperately attempted to defend the Shenandoah from Federal troops who were determined to cut off the Confederacy's primary source of food. Today, it... More

Part of our trip as we were heading home from South Carolina was to go to Shanadoah and through Skyline Drive. The views were breathtaking! We stopped at a few area where you can pullover and see the mountains. Unbelievable and the weather was beautiful which made the sights even more breathtaking. We hiked Frazier Mountain, on part of the... More

I started going to this Park as a very young child. Last October, my spouse & I went again. It is just as magical as I remember. I relaxed completely. If you stay more than a few days, the restaurant will become 'old hat', but the Park, never. Ahhhh!!!
