Manzano Mountains State Park
Manzano Mountains State Park is an excellent destination for hiking and camping. Nestled in the wooded foothills of the Manzanos, this park provides a quiet retreat and is a nice family get-away. Wildlife viewing, birding and photography are great activities at this park.
Always a pleasure to visit this location. The beautiful Shenandoah Valley region is wonderful to visit and this Resort has lots of activities. Actually, there are enough activities on the resort to keep you from visiting local areas. Totally enjoyed a falconry experience through the resort which was so unique! Accommodations are always clean although each of the different activities are additional to your initial payments, so be prepared to continue to spend more money after your arrival. Can't wait to come back in February to fully experience all the winter activities!
I go there mainly for rest and relaxation. When my children were younger, we enjoyed numerous activities. My hubby and I undertake daily outings, even the mall. I also spend a fraction of the time in the Jacuzzi. It would be nice to have a night club on the premises with live entertainment and an additional restaurant with later hours. Overall, it's a great place.
Our "go to" get away. Lots to do (or not, if you just want to chill). Regal Vistas are the top of the timeshare line and the fireplace in the bedroom as well as the living room made it a cozy way to celebrate Christmas. We made a fancy meal that day in the more than adequate kitchen. The fridge worked well for our left overs from our restaurant trips. Comfy beds and lots of towels. Especially enjoyed the soap making experience offered by the crafts Dept.
This place is beautiful all around. Coming here as a tourist from South Florida, we were fascinated by the scenery around the resort including the snowy white top mountains and frozen filled with ducks and swans. There's a lot to do in the area. The Ski resort is a lot of fun. It is worth noting that there are some great skiing & tubing specials that are worth taking advantage of. For example, the Tubing Tuesdays for $20 or Monday Madness skiing/snowboarding for $40 which includes the equipment. There are several caverns just outside of the resort which are really cool. Also, the nearby city of Harrisonburg has a Main Street area which is a fun hang-out spot. And finally, Washington D.C. is only about a 2-hour drive from the resort. So you can feel free to include a day at the nation's capitol as part of your trip.
Fantastic unique place to go to in any season!! They have their own police/security, strict speed limits. Great choice of rentals. Very family friendly!! Plenty of activities to choose from and great food places.
