Looking for a great escape during these unprecedented times? Shenandoah National Park is just 75 miles from Washington, D.C. and is bursting with nature! From the endless vistas to the fields of wildflowers and countless wildlife, you will find a reprieve from the daily pandemic life! It’s the perfect getaway for families, friends, couples, or even a solo traveler. Shenandoah is known for its fall foliage, so naturally we went in the beginning of November. Although we were able to see some really beautiful vistas with colorful leaves, many of the leaves had already changed. The peak time to see fall foliage is mid-late October. Shenandoah has so much to explore, but it’s our hope that this guide will help you make your perfect itinerary.

Every year, we try to take a long weekend trip sometime in the fall. We typically choose our destination by cheapest/best flight we can find. Knoxville happened to have VERY cheap flights through AllegiantAir, so our decision was made for us. We would rent a car, check out the foliage in the Smoky Mountains, do a road trip to Nashville and be home in under 4 days.
With Jenny being a teacher, vacation time during the school year can be hard to come by. We sometimes can squeeze in short 3 or 4 day vacations, and Asheville proved to be the perfect home base for such a trip!
