Recommended Posts

The Shenandoah Valley features picture-postcard farms and inns along country roads and the popular Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway, probably the most beautiful parkway in the nation. On special years, the colors are truly breathtaking.


Renowned nature photographer and author of AAA National Parks Photography, Tim Fitzharris, recommends Shenandoah for great photographic opportunities!

If you are in Maryland, don't miss the trees along the Baltimore Washington Parkway, and my favorite: drive up Sugarloaf Mountain and go for a hike :D
