Skyline Drive, Shenandoah National Park, Virginia
The Blue Ridge Mountains boast some of the most stunning mountain scenery on the East Coast. A trip down Skyline Drive – which runs for 105 miles (169km) north and south from Front Royal to Rockfish Gap – reveals panoramic views of snow-dusted alpines and the valleys below. The road is perched high above the Shenandoah National Park, following the ridge of the Blue Mountains; therefore, winter enthusiasts can expect a peaceful drive and stunning vistas. Winter lovers can stop in the park to snowshoe, ski or see the frozen waterfalls.
