the Shenandoah Valley
Visitors will flock to the Shenandoah Valley for the long Memorial Day weekend—but the entire month of May is marked by scenic beauty and celebration. Now is the time to take unforgettable scenic drives—cruise Skyline Drive May 7-8 for “Wildflower Weekend,” or enjoy miles of lush redbuds along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Don’t forget the historic Wilderness Road, either.
Drive on your own or organize a group for a luxury motorcoach tour --companies like Shenandoah Tours and Blue Ridge Tours will take care of all the driving and help you plan a personalized trip.
Along the way, stop and linger in the Valley’s small towns and vibrant cities (see the menu at left). Each has its own appeal but the most common themes this time of year are festivals and Mother’s Day events. Just a small sampling includes:
May 7th -- Luray’s 12th Annual Festival of Spring (pictured above)
May 8—Mother’s Day Celebration and Dining Event, Natural Bridge
May 28--16th Annual ValleyFest at Massanutten Resort
