Shenandoah NP Trip Plan

Shenandoah Road TripNot so long ago we booked ourselves a vacation and never got around to posting about it. The vacation actually starts in 2 days and I wanted to leave some notes before it starts. The main objective of the road trip is Shenandoah National Park in Northern Virginia.

We’re going to be taking our car and driving down there along with our newest family member. There are going to be 5 of us this time around. We’re going to be staying in lodge located inside the park — Skyland Resort, which was generously paid for by the company I work for.

The plan is pretty simple. We’re going to leave on Friday evening (as early as possible) and drive half a way there. We’re going to stop in Dover, Delaware and spend our first night1 there. Dover is a capital of Delaware.

On Saturday morning we’ll check out Delaware’s capitol building and continue on our way to Annapolis, which is a capitol of Maryland. Afterwards we’ll drive right through Washington, DC and try to grab some stamps from the numerous national monuments that we’ve visited many times in the past.

And in the evening we plan to be at our final destination — Shenandoah National Park2. The perfect time would be to go there 2 weeks earlier while the forest is in full color, but this is the earliest that worked for us. We also didn’t want to take a long trip with Arosha before he turned 3 months which is going to happen right in the beginning of our vacation.

On Saturday, November 13th, we’re driving all the way back home.

Of course the biggest question in all of this is how Arosha is going to behave. Our plans might not be at all what we are thinking they will be.

  1. Best Western Galaxy Inn, $82.61 for 1 room with 2 queen sized beds. []
  2. Total comes out to $1,909.66 for a suite with 2 bedroom with 2 queens beds in each, with tax included. []
