They may be half the age of Horseshoe Bend, but the 500 million year old Blue Ridge Mountains have had plenty of time to come into their own. Shenandoah National Park provides beauty and serenity in spades – just 75 miles from Washington D.C. The star of the show is Skyline Drive, a 105 mile stretch of scenic overlooks, trailheads, and picnic areas to take in the natural beauty of this park.
Stay in a town originally laid out by George Washington when he was seventeen years old. Where comfort meets opulence, The Inn at Little Washington, a Relais and Chateaux property, is a sumptuous home away from home. Be sure to take part in the Inn’s dining experience, again awarded three stars by Michelin, their highest accolade.
