It's fall, y'all! Get out and check out the turning leaves.

If fall is your favorite season, then you won't want to miss the incomparable views in the mountains at Massanutten Resort. A one-of-a-kind autumn attraction, the scenic chairlift ride is a great way to take some stunning fall foliage photos from overhead.

The resort is located just two hours from the Beltway, and a trip to Massanutten is the perfect family outing once the leaves start to turn. You can check out how the landscape looks by clicking here to access a resort webcam.

Where else can you get such panoramic views of the Shenandoah Valley and the surrounding mountains? The 2021 chairlift season ends on Halloween, so you've got just a couple of weeks to add this to your bucket list.
