Six Shenandoah Valley Winter Getaway Ideas

Whether you just want to toast your toes by the fire or get out for some exciting winter sports, base camp at the Hummingbird Inn for your winter getaway! Here are six excellent ideas for indoor/outdoor fun all around the Shenandoah Valley. Check out our 2017 winter fun specials and book that special weekend now!

  1. Spend a day on the slopes and then come “home” to our log fire. Winter activities at The Omni Homestead Resort include skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, and tubing.  And with lessons and terrain for all levels, everyone in your family can enjoy a day out on the slopes!
  2. Enjoy breathtaking mountain scenery with a hike in Douthat State Park. The park offers 43 miles of hiking, mountain biking and bridle trails.
  3. The Frontier Culture Museum is open 7 days a week, 362 days each year! This is not your typical “museum”! History really does come alive at the Frontier Culture Museum.  Throughout the winter, the Museum features a range of hands-on activities, presentations and tours for adventurers of all ages.
  4. The Virginia Military Institute’s Museums and Archives are a must for history buffs.  The museums include The Marshall Museum and the Virginia Museum of the Civil War.
  5. Experience Shakespeare. The American Shakespeare Center offers performances and special programming year-round of not only Shakespeare’s work, but also the work of his contemporaries and modern playwrights.
  6. Maple Donuts! Plan now to attend the famous Highland Maple Festival, held on the 2nd and 3rd weekends of March in neighboring Highland County.
