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 chairlift ride at Massanutten Resort is a great way to take some stunning fall foliage photos from overhead. Located just two hours from the Beltway, a trip to Massanutten is the perfect family outing once the leaves start to turn.

Peak colors for our area will be toward the end of October, so plan accordingly. Where else can you get such panoramic views of the Shenandoah Valley and the surrounding mountains?
