Beauty, history and opportunity
From an ancient Native American legend, the Shenandoah Valley is called Daughter of the Stars for the jewel-like sparkle in our beautiful Shenandoah River. Unparalleled natural beauty, and the quality of life it brings, remains the defining attribute of this uniquely wonderful part of Virginia. Because the Great Wagon Road, now known as Old Valley Pike or Route 11, was pivotal to travel and military strategy, the Valley is also steeped in colonial, Revolutionary, and Civil War history. Cherished by those who have already chosen this as their home -- just far enough and just close enough to the city amenities of Washington, D.C. -- the Shenandoah Valley remains a vibrant region with rich cultural and recreational opportunities, friendly and welcoming residents, and ever-expanding economic opportunities. Technology and communications make it possible to live and work anywhere, so why not choose a place you'll love?
