Scenic Front Royal is where the famed 105-mile Skyline Drive begins, offering visitors an incredible, birds-eye view of the entire Valley as it winds it's way through the 159,000-acre Shenandoah National Park. The town is also where the two forks of the Shenandoah River converge, so canoeing and fishing are plentiful. Other activities include shopping for arts, books, crafts and antiques. Five wineries are located within 15 miles of Front Royal, with two located just 7 miles south of town. Excellent restaurants provide a variety of authentic ethnic choices, including German, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, Greek and, of course good old American cuisines. The Civil War battle is commemorated in the Confederate Museum. The museum details how Stonewall Jackson fought the decisive battle during his Valley campaign of 1862. Also from the Civil War is Belle Boyd's cottage which has been preserved, along with genealogy records and an historical library, by the Warren Heritage Society.
The Skyline Caverns are yet another point of interest for visitors to the area. Open all year, this is the only place in the world with anthodites. Unique formations which seem to defy gravity, they are called "orchids of the mineral kingdom". In addition to these attractions, there are golf courses, antique shops, and great dining and accommodations.
Outdoor sports are what Front Royal-Warren County is all about! Activities such as backpacking, camping, Civil War tours, golf, hiking, horseback riding, Llama trekking, tennis and a variety of river sports lead the list.
