Valley Pike Tour

Whether you prefer to call it the the Warrior’s Path, the Great Wagon Road, the Valley Road, the Valley Pike or even the Lee-Jackson Highway, by any name, Route 11 in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, remains one of the most historic, interesting and vibrant roads in America. Of the over seventeen hundred miles the highway covers from Canada to New Orleans, the stretch from Roanoke to Winchester is one of the very best. Join us on a full-day tour celebrating its greatness as we travel from Staunton to Middletown and back. We will share stories, see dozens of sites, and visit several great attractions including the Valley Pike Museum, the Shenandoah Valley Cultural Heritage Museum, Belle Grove Plantation and Mansion, and the Rt. 11 Potato Chip Factory. There is a separate admission charge of $12 at Belle Grove. Dutch Treat Lunch at Hotel Strasburg.
