Route
“If coming from I-66 out of D.C. or from I-64 From Richmond, consider picking up Skyline Drive. All along the drive you pass through Shenandoah National Park and look West across the bucolic Shenandoah Valley all the way to the Allegheny range - Those mountains you see in the distance across the Valley is where you are headed to Rawley Springs. You would exit Skyline Drive near Elton (ignore the icon on the map that is farther North) and take rt. 33 West to Rawley Springs. It's a lot slower than taking rt. 81 (speed limit 35mph) so you should leave yourself plenty of time to stop at the pullouts and take in the views.”

Grocery or Supermarket
“About 45 minutes away, but it is an excellent grocery with really nice produce and very wide variety of groceries including organic/health food. Probably worth a stop if you also want to see Harrisonburg, which is home to James Madison University and has an interesting downtown and some good restaurants (e.g., Jimmy Madison's Southern Kitchen & Bourbon Bar).”
