The most scenic drive of your itinerary, the picture perfect setting of Skyline Drive is quite breathtaking. Shenandoah Valley has over 500 miles of hiking trails, winding through lush forests and valleys filled with wildflowers, trickling streams and waterfalls. Luray Caverns are the largest caverns on the east coast and well worth a trip.
Accommodations in Shenandoah National Park close in winter due to the weather conditions. Should you wish to remain in the area, accommodation would be in the town of Luray. Between November and March, we suggest you head to Middleburg for the last two nights, staying in the luxurious Salamander Resort & Spa. Enjoy this equestrian region of quaint small towns and a plethora of cider orchards and wine vineyards. From here it is a very short drive back to Washington Dullus Airport for your flight home.Skyland Resort, Shenandoah National Park
