Shenandoah National Park was the reason we picked our first stop of the trip. Skyline Drive runs through the whole national park and offers tons of beautiful look outs along the way. Sadly, we didn't camp in the national park due to it being a holiday weekend and I was scared with the sites being first come - first serve only and the amount of people who like to camp on long weekends. Our site was a short distance off Skyline Drive so we drove the first third of the road on our way there and came back the next day to drive along the rest and venture off the road on some hikes. More on that later.
