The season of love is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than with a romantic getaway to the heart of the Shenandoah Valley? Discover the romance of Shenandoah County by enjoying the beautiful mountain views, going out for a special meal or sipping a glass of local wine, or just staying in and getting cozy in one of our picturesque lodging options.

With its rolling hills, forests and cascading waterfalls, this area provides the perfect backdrop for outdoor adventures … even on a chilly day! For couples willing to brave February temperatures, head out on a hike to witness the breathtaking views together or don a pair of skis at Bryce Resort and then enjoy an intimate dinner at Copper Kettle. Ready to make a grand gesture or the ultimate proposal this Valentine’s Day? Valley Ballooning offers scenic hot air balloon rides over the Shenandoah Valley.

Is taking on a trail or floating in a hot air balloon not your idea of a romantic getaway? Then take a leisurely stroll through one of the county’s historic towns, where you can browse charming boutiques and dine at local restaurants. There are dining options to satisfy every palette, from intimate candlelit dinners at award-winning restaurants to cozy cafes serving up locally sourced, farm-to-table fare. If you’re more of a prime rib-and-scallops kind of person, check out The Edinburg Mill Restaurant. Just want to enjoy a casual pizza and tasty dessert? Then Flour & Water is more your speed!

Top off your meal with a glass of a bold red or crisp white wine from one of our many local wineries. At Wolf Gap Vineyard, the flights of red and white wines are sure to make your heart go pitter-patter, but you also can’t go wrong with their famous blueberry wine. Romance is always in the air here, and Wolf Gap doubles as a popular wedding venue (wink, wink!). Cave Ridge Vineyard offers igloos during the winter season, so you and your partner can enjoy the scenic views from inside your own little bubble, complete with a keepsake mug and a round of mulled wine. The Winery at Kindred Pointe is hosting a Wine and Truffle Pairing event that runs from February 11 through 17. The area also offers a variety of cozy accommodations for your stay. From intimate bed and breakfasts to quaint glamping cabins to modern condos, there’s an option for every couple.

What are you waiting for? Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life with your sweetie and head to Shenandoah County, where despite the chilly temperatures, love is in full bloom!
