Immerse yourself in 300 years of history and enjoy lodging in a hotel or bed and breakfast nestled among the village streets and paths or overlooking the York River. Here you can experience 18th century homes and revolutionary battlefields. Picturesque streets are the backdrop for art galleries, antique and specialty shops. Visit the museums offering hands on programs and exhibits. Stroll along the scenic riverwalk and relax on the sandy beach at river's edge.
Take a ride on the free trolley then march to the beat of the fifes and drums during one of their performances. After working up an appetite, dine at one of our charming restaurants, some with a view of the York River. To add to the charm, enjoy a sail on the York River during the day and as the sun goes down, enjoy a sunset sail on the Schooner Alliance. In Yorktown, there's something for everyone.

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.
