Parks


Virginia is home to one of the greatest state park systems in the country. Virginia State Parks are consistently rated the best in the nation and have been the backdrop for perfect vacations for more than seventy-five years. Virginia’s 36 state parks are as diverse as the state itself, with parks found along the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay, on historic sites, in the Blue Ridge Mountains or just outside of major cities. Our parks have thousands of campsites, hundreds of cabins, more than 500 miles of trails and convenient access to Virginia’s major waterways.

Consider neighboring Fauquier County’s heritage, associated with agriculture, including wineries, and steeplechase racing. Meet Virginia’s version of the Napa Valley on the Blue Ridge Wine Way, which includes nine wineries open for tours and tastings.

Hiking/Biking


Locally, the Marriott Ranch is home to some of the best mountain trail rides in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the Great Meadow Field Event Center is the site for many steeplechase races and polo matches.

Sky Meadows State Park offers hiking trails with rugged terrain and pleasant camping facilities. A portion of the Appalachian Trail runs through the park, too. In Bealeton, be sure to catch the Flying Circus Airshows with vintage biplanes, wing-walkers and hot-air balloon rides.

Skyline


Skyline Drive runs 105 miles north and south along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Shenandoah National Park and is the only public road through the park.

You can enter Shenandoah at several places however; closest is Front Royal at U.S. 340. Front Royal Entrance Station in the north (Mile 0.6) is accessible via U.S. 340. This is the beginning of Skyline Drive through Shenandoah National Park. It takes about three hours to travel the entire length of the park on a clear day. The speed limit on the drive is 35 MPH.
