SHENANDOAH VALLEY Massanutten Resort Tubing—McGaheysville JUMP Feel like a kid again (and bring your own) at Valley Jump Park, a trampoline park in Penn Laird. Featuring 7,000 square feet of open jump and obstacle courses, it's the ultimate stop for a ton of fun during your travels. Looking to sightsee from a different perspective? Skydive Shenandoah offers both single and tandem skydiving over the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains and expansive farmlands. SHENANDOAH VALLEY 116 116 S TA B L E C R A F T B R E W I N G ( WAY N E S B O R O ) : T R AV E L I N G N E W LY W E D S / S H E N A N D O A H R I V E R S TAT E PA R K ( B E N T O N V I L L E ) : T O N Y H A L L We guarantee rush hour in the Shenandoah Valley is unlike anywhere else, intersecting breathtaking scenery and outdoor recreation with diverse shopping, restaurants and of course, fabulous vineyards. For a first-hand view of how local geology has shaped both the land and the iconic Seven Bends of the Shenandoah River, head to Seven Bends State Park. More than 1,000 acres include over four miles of river frontage, hiking and mountain biking trails, plus meadows, forests and other natural assets just waiting to be explored. SARAH HAUSER The SHENANDOAH VALLEY reveals stunning natural beauty with each changing season. With the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east and Alleghenies to the west, its rich agricultural roots have created ample opportunity to reconnect with both the land and the locals – at pick-your own farms, family-owned wineries and breweries, and authentic farm-to-table experiences. Straddling Interstate 81 for approximately 140 miles, this region is the ideal getaway for friends and families seeking fresh-air fun, coupling world-class outdoor assets and mountain-centric resorts. EXPLORE Shenandoah River State Park—Bentonville TOUR Adventurers need apply to explore the Fields of Gold Farm Trail. Discover the homegrown side of Virginia, where agriculture first got its roots. From pond to patch and everything in between, local farmers share their experiences and offer the trip of a lifetime for lucky visitors. Get a taste of agri-tourism events like cutting your own Christmas tree at Every Soul Acres or picking your own blueberries at Hickory Hill Farm. Take home stone-ground, preservative-free flours, grits and cornmeal found at Virginia’s oldest, continuously operating commercial grist mill, Wade’s Mill, a registered Virginia Landmark also on the National Register of Historic Places. Stable Craft Brewing—Waynesboro SIP Taste some of the best craft beverages in the Shenandoah Valley along the Shenandoah Beerwerks Trail and Shenandoah Spirits Trail. Choose from nearly 50 sites to experience patio sunsets, family-friendly atmospheres (welcoming kids and dogs) and tasty beverages to enjoy with friends. Sample from 16 brews at Stable Craft Brewing, located at Hermitage Hill Farm and Stables (a real working farm you can tour), complete with incredible views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Or, try Winchester Ciderworks, a marriage of old world tradition with new world know-how, featuring locally grown apples from the Shenandoah Valley. PLAY The fun never stops for two great resorts in the area, offering year-round entertainment for families of all ages and sizes. At Bryce Resort, guests can go snow or grass skiing; practice the bike trails with beginner, intermediate and expert trails; play the 18-hole golf course; horseback ride; play tennis; or boat, canoe and paddle on a 45-acre lake. Thrill-seekers can zoom through the skies on their 11 zipline platforms, traversing the slopes and through the woods, too! At Massanutten Resort, enjoy a round of golf, see if you can get out of their escape room and splash around the water park. Plus, head to the family adventure park for activities like snow and summer tubing, quick flight free falling and a Ridge Rappel & Climbing Excursion.
