    • Shenandoah NP without a car

      Shenandoah Oct 17, 2016 at 11:58 AM

      Hi ! Im travelling from Washington DC, Id like to camp and hike in Shenandoah NP. There are some buses, trains, amtrak etc going to the skyline area, but I can't decide which city precisely I should choose as a start for my discovery of the area.
      I know that I can easily find a camping there, but I admit that passing by one of the visitor centers would be great before I start hiking !
      I haven't planned to rent a car, so I wonder if you know any entrance easy to reach by foot or by bus.
      Which of the 4 entrances do you think is the closest to beautiful siteseeing and can be reached without driving ?
      Thanks a lot for your anwers !

    • How to plan an extended family getaway

      by Meenie123 Online Now Oct 7, 2006 at 9:14 PM

      My family, in it's infinite wisdom, has decided that a little family getaway would be nice instead of Christmas presents :) A fairly large group: self and husband, sister and husband w/older daughter (adult), sister, brother and wife and maybe son (16, niece (adult), nephew and wife, daughter and husband (young marieds) possibly more!
      I have no idea how to go about looking for something like this. Any ideas or suggestions would be terrific.
      We're looking at something in or around Charlottesville and trying to keep the price of lodging reasonable as some members aren't wealthy.
      Where do I start??

    • Need help with extended family trip

      by Meenie123 Online Now Oct 7, 2006 at 9:11 PM

      My family, in it's infinite wisdom, has decided that a little family getaway would be nice instead of giving Christmas presents. We were thinking of November 24 - 26 somewhere in or near Charlottesville.
      I don't really know how to go about planning something like this for a group of people or where to begin to look. I'm looking at a fairly large group - self and husband, sister and husband w/daughter, another sister, brother and wife, niece, nephew and husband, daughter and husband, at least. Perhaps more.
      How can I go about this and what recommendations for lodging and things to do?
      Thanks ever so much for any help!

      May 28th in Charlottesville

      by ciceropig Online Now May 13, 2005 at 4:24 PM

      I will be visiting Charlottesville on the 28th of May. I am assuming school is out and obtaining lodging will be no problem. Question One! What would be a nice motel within a mile of downtown in the 60.00-80.00 range. Reviews were very scare and I would be taking a stab in the dark making reservations. Would I have to get reservations at this time of year? If you could make a suggestion I would accept your choice. No goats or abandoned trucks in parking lot please! We are walking orientated and dont mind hoofing it. Can one enjoy Monticello and the University of Viginia on a one day walk! Appreciate any other suggestions you may have. I would be leaving NC Saturday morning and be in Charlottesville about noon and have all day Saturday and Sunday to enjoy a town I have wanted to see for a long time. Thanks
