The colors are changing, the air has become crisp and life is starting to slow down. All of this can only mean one thing: autumn has finally arrived. Page County, like many other places, takes on a whole new beauty during the fall months and is the perfect time to plan your visit. While you may not be able to get on the Shenandoah River, there are still plenty of fun and unique things that you can experience in the Shenandoah Valley during the fall.
One of the best things about Page County and the Shenandoah Valley in the fall is the shift in colors. Page County draws in hundreds of visitors every fall, all in anticipation of witnessing the beauty of the trees that takes place during the autumn months. Hiking and visiting one of the 75 overlooks on the Shenandoah National Park is the best way to see the colors that the Valley has to offer. The cool air and the promise of beauty is enough to make even the longest hike absolutely worth it.
If you want to spend more than one day in nature, but want to experience other parts of nature, you can venture out to Lake Arrowhead. While you may not be able to swim, the ability to still fish, enjoy the 1-mile nature trail that circles the lake, or just sit and watch the quiet waves hit the shore can offer a peacefulness that only Fall in the Valley can provide.
Are you traveling here with your kids? Fear not, there is still plenty to enjoy. With the introduction of the newest pumpkin patch, the Fairview Fun Farm is going to offer a fun experience for adults and kids alike. They will offer pumpkins for picking, a corn maze, hay wagon ridges, a petting zoo area, food and other entertainment that is sure to make lasting memories for your kids.
If you are just traveling with your friends, you can enjoy time at wineries, breweries and distilleries while you enjoy the cool air. Wisteria Farm and Vineyard and Castle Vineyard both provide a peaceful environment for you and your friends to enjoy local wines.They both offer wines from the area, as well as great outdoor areas for you to enjoy the wine and colors of fall. Hawksbill Brewing Company also provides a great area for you to sip your beer and spend time with your friends. River Hill Wine and Spirits offers a variety of fruit wine and whiskey, that is all crafted right on site, while you enjoy some alone time with the people you are closest to.
Planning a trip all starts with your lodging options. Page County is known as the Cabin Capital of Virginia, and offers an abundance of options for places to hunker down while you are here. Many of our cabins offer amenities such as fire pits that offer the perfect place to enjoy a bottle of wine, roast some marshmallows, and cuddle up together on a chilly fall night, as well as beautiful decks to enjoy a spectacular autumn sunset on. Whether you want lodging right on the Shenandoah River, or to stay in a secluded mountain cabin, Page County has just what you are looking for.
