Hi, hubs has “use it or lose it” vacation time and we are last-minute planning. So far we are booked on the Auto Train from Florida to Lorton VA just outside Washington DC on Dec 9 and have booked nothing else! We have done this before and drove back by way of Monterey VA, West Virginia and central Georgia, a very fun trip.
I owe Hubs a vacation (long story) and he loves driving in the mountains so some time on Skyline Drive and/or BRP is a given, but it would be nice for a change not to move lodging every single night. The lodges on SD will apparently be closing for the season. I would love to find a nice away-from-it-all place to spend a couple of nights, from which we could maybe drive a scenic loop to/from either SD or BRP entry points. Is this a workable notion?
Places to take in a museum or two (art or technology ), or even live theater, would be a plus, but not a requirement.
Any advice much appreciated!
