Shenandoah National Park

3655 U.S. Highway 211 East
Luray, Virginia 22835

Just 75 miles from the bustle of Washington, D.C., Shenandoah National Park is a land bursting with cascading waterfalls, spectacular vistas, fields of wildflowers, and quiet wooded hollows. With over 200,000 acres of protected lands that are haven to deer, songbirds, and black bear, there’s so much to explore…and your journey begins right here!

New Market Battlefield Military Museum

9500 George R. Collins Parkway
New Markey, Virginia 22844

Agriculture was the economic driving force of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia during the Civil War. By May of 1864, the Confederacy and its economy were inching closer to total collapse. Despite this, farms throughout the valley pressed on, as they had bellies to fill and bills to be paid. The Manor family farm of New Market, Virginia, was no exception.

Luray Zoo – A Rescue Zoo

1087 Us Highway 211 West
Luray, Virginia 22835

Hawksbill Brewing Co.

22 Zerkel St, Luray,
Virginia 22835

The inspiration for Hawksbill Brewing Company originated in 2015 with the local farms of Page County. We set out with the goal of using local ingredients in our beers whenever we could, starting with hops grown in Luray, Virginia. By the time of our grand opening in 2017, we had developed beers that also used local honey and blackberries, and we’re creating new recipes that feature local ag products all the time. From the farm, to the kettle, to the keg, to the glass – that’s why we say our beers are “grown here, brewed here!”

Bear Mountain Ziplines
