Places To Go
NPS Bob Kuhns
When you enter the park you will be on Skyline Drive and here the fun begins. Not only is this roadway an experience in itself, it is the route to all places of interest in Shenandoah. All along the Drive there are beautiful overlooks, designed to give you spectacular views.
In addition to a few stops along the way at your favorite overlooks, plan a stop at the visitor centers, bookstores, and exhibits. There are also lodges, restaurants, and gift shops. Big Meadows, right in the middle of the park, is a great place to spend some time and you will see hiking trailheads all along the Drive.
