The mountain-fringed town of Staunton is nestled between Shenandoah National Park and George Washington and Jefferson National Forests and is the perfect base of operations for exploring the Shenandoah Valley. You'll spend 3 days/2 nights discovering your passion for the outdoors.
Day 1: Only minutes away from two stunning scenic byways, Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway, take in the sights and scenes of the Shenandoah Valley on a guided excursion, led by Wildland Trekking, through the mountains as you visit scenic overlooks, spectacular waterfalls and breathtaking mountain views. Then stretch your legs with a nature hike discovering the area flora and fauna culminating in a catered picnic lunch.
After lunch, hop on the Shenandoah Beerwerks Trail and try over 13 craft breweries, three of which are located in downtown Staunton or sample the fine selections of wines served up at wine bars and tasting rooms throughout historic Staunton.
Day 2: Farm Tour-After a day in the mountains, spend time exploring the valley’s agricultural treasures as you visit working farms, orchards and tasting rooms along the Fields of Gold farm trail. Spend the day learning about sustainable farming, try your hand at canning, pick your own lavender, wild flowers or seasonal fruit, tour a fish hatchery or enjoy the many wineries or breweries the region has to offer. Return to Staunton for a farm to table meal at one of our local restaurants.
Day 3: Hit the Town-While the mountains are a main attraction, this charming town boasts a compact downtown featuring over 100 unique shops, art galleries and restaurants. No trip to Queen City is complete without exploring Staunton’s six National Register Historic Districts on a guided walking tour led by the Historic Staunton Foundation or if your traveling with a group; board your coach and take a private tour with Staunton Guided Tours.
Enjoy lunch downtown and then spend the afternoon visiting one of our many attractions. Step back in time as you tour the world’s only re-creation of Shakespeare’s indoor theatre, the Blackfriars Playhouse; discover the life and legacy of the 28th President at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum; or be immersed in the daily life of the Shenandoah Valley’s earliest settlers at the Frontier Culture Museum. Each attraction offers specialized and private tours to best accommodate your group’s interests and needs.
