Man’s enamor for nature has lead to some of the world’s best works of literature. The American landscape has continually inspired our nation’s greatest writers, from Emerson and Thoreau to Hemingway and Jon Krakauer, to capture what it is we seek in the great outdoors and put it on paper. Why is this? Because nothing compares to heading for the horizon, reaching a peak and traversing new trails. If you want to enjoy a romantic honeymoon (1st or 2nd) alongside the romance of rolling hills, lush forest and fresh air, travel to Shenandoah Crossing™. Sprawling across Gordonsville, Virginia, the vacation suites, cabins and yurts will surprise you in their luxury and provide you with new experiences to add to your wedded bliss. Shenandoah Crossing is situated on over 1,000 acres of pastureland and rolling hillside. It offers an outdoors sanctuary for those who wish to relax at Lake Izac, explore the Shenandoah Valley and try some new wines together.
Try the Viognier. Horton Vineyards, in Gordonsville, Virginia, offers yet another romantic landscape and reason to enjoy. The vineyard is open for tastings seven days a week.
