Harrisonburg Hotels

Experience the seasons in all their glory at Virginia’s top adventure park, challenge yourself on difficult ski runs on icy mountaintops in winter, and splash through warm pool water at the indoor aqua park that’s open all year round. Harrisonburg is an exciting blend of eras, both ancient and modern, university campuses with a laid-back vibe, and modern attractions that keep visitors flocking to the town throughout the year. Quaint main streets are lined with converted townhouses that serve as independent boutiques, while rambling paths lead through green parklands to follow the winding river out of town.

Things to see

For year round fun, the Massanutten Adventure Resort is the ultimate destination. In wintertime, its ski slopes are covered with a dusting of fresh white snowfall, brightly lit with lanterns and leading to cozy bars. During summer, golf courses display the fertile green of their fairways, soft yellow sands of teasing bunkers dot the courses, and in the water park, swimmers squeal with delight at the twisting turns of water flumes and the gentle flow of the lazy river. When the Rockingham County Fair comes to town at the nearby fairgrounds, the whole county turns up for the fun. Marvel at elephants in the tented circus, meet unique animals in the petting zoo, and increase your culinary repertoire in hands-on cooking lessons. From rapid, flashing fairground rides, to pageants and livestock shows, it’s a weekend of activity and fun for the whole family. Inside the Grand Caverns of Shenandoah Valley, towering stalactites point their vicious spikes from the lofty cave roof, and winding passageways lead through a fabulous cave network. Enjoy a picnic on the grounds outside and swim in outdoor pools before working off your lunch on the winding hiking trails that lead into the forest.

Hotels in Harrisonburg

Local, friendly, and with small-town appeal, hotels in Harrisonburg are ideally suited to this quaint inner-state town. There aren’t any luxury hotels in Harrisonburg, although there are some exceptionally nice mid-budget choices. Typically, you can expect to have flat-screen televisions, en-suite bathrooms, complimentary WiFi, and a free breakfast every morning. At the other end of the budget are some simple motels that sit a little further out of town. Free parking and private entrances are typical of these places to stay, and while the decor might not be up-to-date and modern, they’re largely still well-presented rooms.

Where to stay

The modern inner-town streets of Harrisonburg are surprisingly cultural and contemporary for a town of its size. Museums of history and art are modern, brick-built galleries next to open parking lots, the judicial center stands as a powerful reflection on sandstone justice marked by enormous street-facing windows, and along Lee Highway, pretty delis with wrought-iron balustrades sit next to chintzy gift shops, discount hotels, and modern brick churches.

How to get to Harrisonburg

Richmond International Airport is the easiest place to fly to when you’re coming to Harrisonburg. It sits a little to the southeast, an easy and thankfully short drive by car or bus. Rather than taking the available public transport to reach your hotel, choosing to hire a car from the arrivals terminal gives you the freedom to explore the George Washington National Forest and the unique landscape of the Monongahela National Forest nearby. Harrisonburg itself though, is small enough to walk around with ease.
