There is so much to see and do in the Shenandoah Valley! The valley is bounded to the east by the Blue Ridge Mountains, to the west by the eastern front of the Ridge-and-Valley Appalachians (excluding Massanutten Mountain), to the north by the Potomac River and to the south by the James River. Within its hills and hollows, American history was made, from pre-colonial times to the present.
Travel down historic Rt 11 — formerly a well-traveled road for the Native Americans (before the European invasion) — and see all that the Shenandoah Valley offers.
