Kosher Food Options Near Shenandoah NP
« on: July 29, 2018, 12:04:29 PM »
Looking for options besides Richmond, VA. Any leads appreciated. Also looking for must see spots and activities. So far, I've been told about Luray Stalactite caves and the scenic drives. That's about it. This will be my first known excursion to a National Park so please send any pertinent ideas or things to know.Thanks in advance!

For Minyanim and food and a bonus worthwhile activity? Probably up to an hour

How long do you plan to stay?  When?  We did it in a day trip, brought our own food, made BBQ.  Went autumn to see fall foliage.  Hiked a bit of the Appalachian Trail, did a ranger walk (meadow walk, I believe) plus Rapidan Camp tour (history).

You can find schedule of ranger programs here:

Nothing really must see, IMO.

Your response was more along the lines of what I was looking for. Thanks! Plan on staying 2 1/2 days and somewhere drivable from D.C./Baltimore, so someone who grew up in Virginia suggested it.

Doubt you'll find minyanim and food. For activities there are a few other things depending on how far down skyline drive you're heading

If there's something special further south, I'd consider. All options on the table being that I've never done a state park before.

Thanks. Sorry for starting a new thread. I searched Shenandoah but that thread didn't come up so I started a new one.

I was recently in Shenandoah. Skyline Drive is beautiful, but there is no nearby minyan or kosher food available. If you want a world-class but strenuous hike, look into Old Rag, which features amazing views and an unbelievable rock scramble to the summit. Shorter and easier options include Hawksbill, Stony Man, Dark Hollow Falls, and Bearfence.
