Shenandoah, Virginia

The Great Valley descends gently from Winchester to Lexington in undulating waves of green pastures, solemn battlefields and historic hamlets that are abuzz with the trade of artisans and antiques. Formed over eons by two mountain ranges and a mighty river, the 200-mile-long historic Valley is an oasis of history and nature.

Mineral springs and caverns, cooler summer climes and snowy winters have made this a four-season playground for generations. After adventuring in Shenandoah National Park, find respite in a grand historic hotel or quaint B&B.
