The word “Shenandoah” means, “beautiful daughter of the stars,” and it is truly a beautiful place. The Shenandoah Valley is bounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains in the east and the Allegheny and Appalachian Plateaus in the west.
Almost every road that passes through, or around, the Shenandoah Valley, offers endless scenic vistas, including the legendary Blue Ridge Parkway and the just-as-famous Skyline Drive. The area is filled with motels and beautiful Bed and Breakfasts. There are museums, Civil War Battlefields, Revolutionary War sites, the Luray Caverns, Natural Bridge of Virginia, Shenandoah National Park and much more.
