The Valley stretches 200 miles from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, to Roanoke and Salem, Virginia. Bordered to the east by the Skyline Drive/Shenandoah National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway and to the west by the Alleghany Mountains, the Valley's thoroughfares are the scenic Interstate 81 and the less hurried US 11 to encompass three regions: Northern, Central and Southern.
The Shenandoah Valley, known as the "Daughter of the Stars," is a diverse and unique region awaiting your exploration.
At Great Falls, the Potomac River builds up speed and force as it falls over a series of steep, jagged rocks and flows through the narrow Mather Gorge. The Patowmack Canal offers a glimpse into the early history of this country. Great Falls Park has many opportunities to explore history and nature, all in a beautiful 800 acre park only fifteen miles from the Nationís Capital.
