Autumn in the Shenandoah Valley
Front Royal is not only the Canoe Capital of Virginia with the wonderful Shenandoah River flowing northeast across Warren County, we are also the northern gateway to Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National Park! As we welcome autumn, it's the most perfect time of year to experience both the river and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Here you'll find leaf peeping and foliage updates so you can plan to view the trees at the height of their colorful transformations. Know that the trees peak at various times and not just for one specific day or weekend. (Hint, hint … no need to wait in miles of traffic to get your peak!) So come and Discover Front Royal this autumn!
Be sure to visit this page often for timely calendar updates with new events being added weekly. Our blog posts will feature all things autumn in Front Royal and Valley, so be sure to check back often.
Come for the Leaves. Stay for the Stars.
On the other side of Front Royal, Sky Meadows State Park is great option for stargazing in Virginia. Sky Meadows offers such great night sky views, that it’s recently become an officially designated Dark Sky Park.
Experience the beautiful fall foliage on Skyline Drive, visit our wonderful historic town, and make it complete with the best stargazing around!
Let one of our Visitor Experience Specialists help you plan your trip today!
For the Kids!
