Take in a Shakespeare Show
Situated in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley in historic Staunton, Virginia, the 300-seat Blackfriars Playhouse -- the world's only re-creation of Shakespeare's original indoor theater. The American Shakespeare Center hosts an internationally acclaimed theater company that performs Shakespeare's works under their original staging conditions -- on a simple stage, without elaborate sets, and with the audience sharing the same light as the actors. A great experience for anyone to enjoy!
Fall Foliage in the Shenandoah Valley - Sept - Nov
Magnificent beauty surrounds us in the fall! The leaves are gorgeous shades of green, yellow, orange, red, & even purple. While the sun may set earlier, the beauty never stops because on a crisp clear night the moon lights the valley & and the stars twinkle above. What a great time of year to camp here!
You'll just love the down-home country fall foliage festivals with all the homemade jams, syrup, & apple butter you could ever want. You'll also see some of the best handmade crafts, woodworking, jewelry, & quilts ever made. Our Fall Festivals are something to share with the entire family.
You can't forget to take a drive on the Skyline Drive or Blue Ridge Parkway to gain real perspective on how vast the beauty of The Blue Ridge Mountains.
