the Shenandoah Valley
Much to the delight of skiers, snowboarders, and hot-chocolate lovers, Winter Storm Jonas dropped two to three feet of snow over the Shenandoah Valley in January. But February forecasts are more moderate--over much of the Valley, daytime temperatures will linger in the upper 40s. While there may be a bit of snow, the average precipitation for the month (at Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport) is just 2.5 inches. In other words, weather should not interfere with your Valentine’s Day plans! Special packages abound, from luxurious cabins and charming B&Bs to historic inns and hotels in the Valley’s vibrant cities and towns.
Just a few of the venues offering special packages include:
Valentine’s Couples Package at Natural Bridge Park and Historic Hotel, between Lexington and Roanoke
