City dwellers searching for fresh mountain air, apple butter doughnuts, or a memorable meal in a rural setting seek out Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley for an escape within a few hours drive of D.C. The foothills around Shenandoah National Park are full of options for hungry and thirsty visitors who are observing social distancing protocols. From Sperryville to “little” Washington, Winchester to Front Royal, and everywhere in between, there are a number of dining and drinking destinations that pair perfectly with a day hike or country getaway.
This map focuses primarily on takeout and delivery. Virginia restaurants have resumed full-capacity dine-in service, but this should not be taken as an endorsement that eating indoors is completely safe. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
