Part of a series of five family trips to the Shenandoah Valley showcased on Trekaroo and sponsored by Go Blue Ridge Travel's Kids Trail, Jo-lynn Shane and her family enjoyed a 48 hour stay in Winchester, Virginia.
"Until this trip, I had no idea that Winchester holds such historical significance for our country. While we were there, we learned that Winchester was the training ground for George Washington during the French and Indian War as well as a location for prisoners during the Revolutionary War. But Winchester was also a strategic prize in the Civil War, changing hands some 70 times during those four years. There are several historic sites related to both wars that you can tour, and many of the buildings in town have fascinating stories to tell. The area also offers a variety of outdoor adventures, amusement parks, children’s museums, farm experiences, and underground caverns to explore.
Go Blue Ridge Travel and their Shenandoah Kids Trail website is a wealth of information for families traveling to the area. Bucket is their friendly little mascot and tour guide, helping you make your bucket list for visiting the region.
