Drive the Skyline Drive, Shenandoah National Park

Be prepared for endless viewpoints over the Shenandoah Valley, the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the Massanutten Mountain Range. Plan your drive well to incorporate hikes, picnic spots, the best viewpoints, and lodges. 

Hike the Dark Hollow Falls Trail

Dark Hollow Falls Trail is a 1.4-mile loop hike down to the Dark Hollow Waterfall. Allow for at least an hour and pack a picnic lunch if you want to spend more time enjoying the falls. 

Walk an Alpaca

It’s like having your favorite teddy bear come to life: petting it as you walk and stopping for as many cuddles as you can fit into 60-minutes. I didn’t even care that my fifth gear walking place was dropped back into first. 

Explore the Luray Caverns

I was stunned by the pristine condition and the abundance of stalagmites and stalactites formations, full-length draperies, and huge columns that this ancient cave has formed over millions of years. 

Horseback Riding with Jordan Hollow Stables

We took a horseback ride on Bliss, Cloude, Jasmine, and Treena, beautiful gentle horses that took us across the small Hawksbill creek and winding through a series of trails winding through a 140-acre property.
