the Shenandoah Valley
From the ski slopes of luxury resorts to New Year’s Eve revelry at a natural wonderland, action in the Shenandoah Valley really heats up in December. A traveler’s “to do” list could include: rediscover romance at a mountain cabin
surrounded by stark winter beauty; shop for the holidays
in small towns where customer service still exists; be enticed by quilts, art, fine wine, locally made crafts and other Valley treasures; book the Shakespeare Package at the Stonewall Jackson Hotel
in Staunton, or visit vibrant areas like Martinsburg (WV)
, and Lynchburg
to experience a combination of historic preservation and progressive vitality.
Have to get outside? Base your skiing and snowboarding at Massanutten Resort
, where among many brand new additions you will find an umbrella bar and restaurant called Base Camp, plus a 13,000-square foot Snow Sports Learning Center, the new home for the populr Mountain Cruiser Children's Sports Program. Want to ring in 2016? Natural Bridge Park and Historic Hotel
is hosting three bands along with holidy food and drink to kick off the new year. A tourist attraction since the 18th Century, it was called by Thomas Jefferson, "the most Sublime of nature's works."
We think you'll agree.
