On our way home via Interstate 81, following a few weeks in Europe, we took a detour onto Hwy 66 and entered the Shenandoah National Park. The entrance to the park was at Front Royal, Va. As corny as this may sound, John Denver said it all..."Gee it's good to be back home again". As much as the Alps in... More

The scenic drive along Skyline Drive was very enjoyable. It had excellent views and was pleasantly uncrowded, although I'm sure it is probably more crowded in summer. It was nice to have some peace and quiet during our trip.

Very scenic drive through the Shenandoah Mountians. Stopped at a few overlooks and took many pictures. Don't be in a hurry as I am sure you will see wild life. The deer hardly moved as our car pulled up!!! Fun trip and a great lunch on the journey.

If you make it to the Shenandoah Valley national park area you should definitely do the skyline drive. It's excellent and if you're a photo buff you should definitely do this it's so picturesque. It's nice to do the drive... it requires you to slow down and take it all in.

You will get addicted to this drive.... one of the most popular mountain drives in mid-atlantic... I have been here in summer with the lush green vegetation and fall (my favorite) with the colorful mosaic and blue ridge mountains at the background/horizon...Both offers its own beauty.. if you are in the DC/NoVA area, this should be on your 'to do'...

The park was closed to vehicular traffic due to bad weather when we arrived, but was opened by around noon as the ice and storm effects were cleared away. Views around every turn!

The kids loved the beautiful views. I would recommend seeing it for yourself. It can get a bit redundant after awhile, especially with children. It is great for adults, but the kiddos can get bored with similar views. Still definitely a must see for the entire family.

The beautiful and bountiful and historic Shenandoah Valley is nestled between the Appalachian Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, split down the middle by mighty Massanutten Mountain and Interstate-81 and the history Valley Pike. For Civil War buffs like us or just nature enthusiasts and ambitious and inquisitive travelers, this is a wonderful region to explore. A good... More
