of Virginia. We add new listings and links on a regular basis so bookmark this page and check back often.
Shenandoah County is set against a backdrop of the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains. Many friendly towns, each one with its own historic flavor, are great places to stop for a look at small town life, beautiful architecture, unique shops and eateries.
History buffs will be fascinated with Stonewall Jackson's Museum, Crystal Caverns, Museum of American Presidents, and the New Market Battlefield State Historical Park. Sample the local wines made at Shenandoah Vineyards and the North Mountain Vineyards. Visit the famous Shenandoah Caverns and American Celebration on Parade.
Two world class golf resorts, the challenge of snow skiing in the wintertime or grass skiing in the summertime, and hiking are a sampling of the many outdoor activities. The music lover will also enjoy the summer season of the Shenandoah Valley Music Festival.

SKYLINE DRIVE... The Skyline Drive runs 105 miles north and south along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Shenandoah National Park and is the only public road through the park. You can enter Shenandoah at four places: Front Royal near Rt. 66 and 340, Thornton Gap at Rt. 211, Swift Run Gap at Rt. 33, and Rockfish Gap at Rt. 64 and Rt. 250 (also the northern entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway). It takes about three hours to travel the entire length of the park on a clear day.
As you travel along Skyline Drive you will notice mileposts on the west side (right side if you are traveling south) of the road. These posts help you find your way through the park and help you locate areas of interest. The mileposts begin with 0.0 at Front Royal and continue to 105 at the southern end of the park.
The speed limit is 35 mph, so you can roll down your windows, feel the breeze and experience every curve and turn of this beautiful drive. There are 75 overlooks that offer stunning views of the Shenandoah Valley to the west or the rolling Piedmont to the east. The park purposely leaves the roadsides unmowed so wildflowers put on a show all year long.
