Situated along Virginia’s western border and including West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle, the Shenandoah Valley is one of the country’s most scenic areas, and known for its vistas and rural charm. The Valley is defined by the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east and the Allegheny Mountains to the west; the Shenandoah River winds through the Valley and between these two mountain ranges. The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley tells the stories of the ten counties—two in West Virginia and eight in Virginia—that stretch from the Potomac River in the north to the Roanoke Valley in the south. The MSV is a great place to begin your Shenandoah Valley visit and Winchester is an ideal home base as you explore the region. If you are able to stay a while, below are a few suggestions to consider as you plan your trip.
