Things to Do in the spring at Hot Tub Heaven...
To begin, the Shenandoah National Park is the number one reason people from around the world visit our area. You will also enjoy visiting Skyline Drive, Shenandoah River State Park, State Arboretum of Virginia and right at the top of our mountain - a short distance from any cabin - is the Appalachian Trail! Trail hiking is popular year round, as is bird and wildlife watching!
The Cabins are in the heart of Virginia Wine Country! Explore dozens of wineries within 30 minutes of the cabins! Including our mountain winery, Fox Meadow. Map of 25+ Wineries Local to Hot Tub Heaven - click here
Skyline Caverns and Luray Caverns are also must sees. However, you should also consider day trips to places like New Market and America's Celebration on Parade, Shenandoah Caverns (the only cavern in the valley with an elevator), the Natural Bridge, Monticello, Walton's Mountain, Montpellier, Manassas Battlefield and even Washington, DC.
Since the Shenandoah Valley is where a large share of the Civil War Battles occurred, there are several driving tours, such as the Battles of Front Royal, Cedar Creek, Fishers Hill, New Market, and Winchester, Kernstown, Rappahannock County and Harper's Ferry.
The Walking tours of Front Royal, Winchester, Luray are excellent ways to experience the various rich histories amid a relaxed do it at your own pace atmosphere.
Then there is one of our favorite pastimes...driving scenic roads (such as Fort Valley Road) and exploring small towns like Syria, Little Washington, Sperryville, Shenandoah, Rileyville, and a million other such towns and hamlets in the Valley.
Visits to Belle Grove Plantation, (540) 869-2028 or Long Branch Estate (888) 558-5567 or the Virginia Arboretum (540) 837-1758 are always recommended.
A visit to the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley and the Museum of Winchester is a high priority attraction.
Antiquing and shopping are always fun and in abdance in our area.
Of course there is always just staying home at your cabin - relaxing in the hot tub (be sure to bring a baseball cap with you - keeping any falling precipitation off your head is the trick to enjoying the hot tub anytime).
