With miles of seashore, majestic mountains and centuries of history, Virginia is one of the country’s most diverse travel destinations.
If you need inspiration for your next adventure, check out these three amazing and unique RV spots.
1. Shenandoah National Park: Savor Mother Nature’s Glory
Shenandoah National Park is one of Virginia’s crown jewels. The 200,000-acre park preserves 105 miles of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and it offers incredible opportunities to become enveloped in nature.
The park features dozens of hiking trails for all difficulty levels. The most popular hike is a strenuous climb up Old Rag Mountain, complete with a rock scramble through granite boulders. Hikers will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the park from Old Rag's 3,284-foot-tall summit. On other trails, you can explore the surrounding wilderness and marvel at the park’s many epic waterfalls.
When you need a break from hiking, take a scenic drive down Skyline Drive, which twists through the whole park and offers incredible leaf-peeping opportunities in the fall.
