Whether you want to bike, hike, shop, or just stroll, Shenandoah County is rich in natural beauty and cultural heritage. Traditionally, a county with strong commercial ties to agriculture, Shenandoah is also one of the most historic and beautiful counties in the state. Shenandoah County is proudly home to six incorporated towns: Edinburg, Mount Jackson, Toms Brook, New Market, Strasburg and Woodstock. Known as The String of Pearls, each town has unique shops, restaurants and businesses. From outside to inside, we have just what you are looking for.

Shenandoah County continues to be a place where commerce and the power of human ingenuity work not only alongside but in the context of our great national heritage. We continue to promote the general welfare of our citizens and the prosperity of our County by developing a mutually beneficial network of local businesses, stimulating public support for our business community, and taking advantage of our beautiful location.

Whether you're new to our community, "born-and-raised," or simply passing through, we hope that you'll appreciate Shenandoah County for what it offers and continue to support our local economy.

We invite you to Come Play Outdoors and get to know Shenandoah County. Hike the 178 miles of trails that wind through the George Washington National Forest, and explore over 30 miles of streams that wander down the mountains to join the Shenandoah River in the valley below.

Whether you prefer a leisurely stroll in a small town or a strenuous hike on a mountain trail, a high energy mountain bike adventure or navigating a sleek kayak down the river, settling-in for the night at a rural campground or ending your day in a cozy hotel room- we have a variety of outside activities to suit your interests.

Come Play Outdoors and discover why there's only one Shenandoah County in the Shenandoah Valley!

The Lettermen is made up of three strong vocalists whose smooth voices and expert showmanship never fail to entertain. Their sound is something of a mix between the big band vocal groups and the early R&B rock groups of the time. The 60’s and early 70’s saw The Lettermen score over 25 chart hit singles, including “Theme from ‘A Summer Place’”, “Goin’ Out of My Head/Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” and “Hurt So Bad.” The Lettermen are: Tony Butala, Donovan Tea and Bobby Poynton.

    There is so much opportunity here in the Valley and in Virginia – great recreational options, affordable housing, excellent education systems at all levels, and increasing options for career advancement. The problem? Sometimes the Valley remains a best-kept secret. We´ve made a number of in-roads in educating the rest of the nation about the advantages of doing business in the Valley. We continue to be named to great lists like a great place to get a job in America, a great place to retire and one of the nation´s strongest economies. Like other parts of Virginia, attracting more people to fill our jobs and grow our companies can be a challenge. I applaud efforts across the state to focus on the many benefits of living in Virginia. The busiest part of our local tourism season will soon be underway – and it´s a great chance for us to serve as ambassadors for our community. We will have visitors traveling from all over the U.S. eating at our restaurants, staying at our hotels, shopping at our retail centers and experiencing our wonderful attractions. We all know the Valley advantages – we live here and work here. I encourage you to talk to our visitors about why you choose to live and work in the Valley. Advertising, rankings and promotional efforts will all help tell the Valley story – but there is nothing quite as inspirational as a personal testimonial. We strive to improve our community and make it a better place for future generations. That´s why we´re Chamber members, right? We believe that progress is everyone´s business and that we can have a positive impact on the Valley area´s progress by investing in the community through the Chamber. Thank you for your continued membership in the Chamber.
