The Shenandoah Valley

Songs Have Been Written About Shenandoah

Green and golden farm fields dotted with rows of round hay bales.

Cozy little towns accented with countless church steeples kissing the sky. Lazily rolling byways that turn a simple drive into a joyous experience. It almost sounds too good to be true. But these scenes, this experience, stretch the entire 250-mile length of the fabled Shenandoah Valley.

Experience fiery fall foliage, vibrant spring blooms, and picture-postcard farms and inns along scenic byways and country roads. Discover the crafts, foods, quaint villages and towns that highlight the mountain heritage of this region.

Tennessee Ernie Ford. The Statler Brothers. Bruce Springsteen. John Denver. They’ve all paid tribute to the Shenandoah in song. And why wouldn’t they? It’s rich, green riverbanks, striking mountain views, gentle vastness and thrilling rapids are indeed inspirational. And they can certainly inspire an adventure or two of your own. Who knows? You might even find yourself singing from the shore.

Discover the serenity of the Shenandoah River

Feel like casting a line? The fish are usually biting. Interested in exploring the river’s nooks and crannies? There are several canoe rental companies and tours to choose from. And if you’re in the mood to simply float along lazily, tubing excursions abound on the Shenandoah.

Slow it down, take it all in, and enjoy

Hike. Climb. Gaze. Stroll. Bike. Ride. Drive. However you choose to enjoy it, Shenandoah National Park puts the best of nature in the palm of your hand.

The serpentine Skyline Drive crosses and re-crosses the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains as it stretches like a ribbon among sixty mountain peaks. Seventy-five “overlooks” along this famous drive provide breathtaking views of the Shenandoah Valley more than 4,000 feet below.

Enjoy miles of hiking trails that encounter pristine waterfalls ascending to ancient granite summits. The forested hills, hollows and slopes abound in creatures large and small: the largest population of the North American black bear, the gently grazing whitetail deer, 100 varieties of trees, 100 flowering plants, and 200 species of birds.

Go ahead and get reacquainted with the great outdoors.
