Shenandoah National Park is a great spot to escape the heat and humidity of Washington, D.C., in the summer. There's a lovely variety of hikes here, such as the trail to the top of Old Rag and the popular the eight-mile loop connecting the stepped falls of White Oak Canyon and Cedar Run. While you're out that way, you should also take a canoe or tube down the South Fork of the Shenandoah River. Downriver Canoe in Bentonville is one of several outfitters in the area who rent equipment and run guided trips. Shenandoah's Big Meadows and Skyland lodges are two nice spots from which to explore the park; the campground at Big Meadows is also popular, as is the campground at Elizabeth Furnace down in the Shenandoah Valley near Front Royal.
