Things to Do
The beautiful Shenandoah Valley… so much to see and do!
- The major attractions are Shenandoah National Park/Skyline Drive where you can drive, hike, and explore for hours or days and Luray Caverns where underground formations will amaze and delight guests of all ages.
- While in Luray, be sure to enjoy the Hawksbill Greenway with its fantastic walking/biking trail along a rushing creek.
- More interested in horses? Horseback riding by the hour or by the day can be found at Fort Valley Ranch or Jordan Hollow Stables.
- Are you more of a water person? Head to Shenandoah River Adventures or Shenandoah River Outfitters and spend a couple of hours or the whole day on the beautiful Shenandoah River.
- If golfing is more your idea of fun, take in 18 holes at the Shenvalee Golf Resort or Caverns Country Club Resort … or the little ones may prefer mini golf and the water park at Yogi Bear’s Park.
- Everyone will enjoy Lake Arrowhead’s fishing, boating, BBQ facilities, and swimming/relaxing at the beach area. Wineries, historic sites, fairs & festivals, and more indoor and outdoor fun can be found by clicking on the tabs below!
