Skyline drive is a quick trip away. And while no where near Mount Vernon, it offers some of the state's most breathtaking vistas, charming wineries along the way and nature. Best of all, if you combine a trip to the mountains with the caverns, you can quite literally see the depths and heights of the Old Dominion State.
