Shenandoah Valley - any ideas

Planning to visit Shenandoah Valley and Skyline Drive at the end of June for a week. Have not been there in many years...please advise if you will:

1. Any winery recommendations?

2. Best day hike for moderate difficulty? I'm fit, but not as young as I once was...hopefully any with waterfalls included?

3. Anything cool to see or visit near Massanutten? I remember the spectacular view at Massanutten Gap...

4. Road bike tours or sites to visit by bike?

5. Any spa recommendation ie day spa or fitness activities like rafting, kayaking, tubing, ziplines?

Thanks in advance, much appreciated.

I can answer a few of your questions...

1. Barrel Oak Winery, Delaplane Cellars...both are not far from the Front Royal end

2. Rose River Falls Loop...4 miles, beautiful waterfalls and cascading stream for at least half the length of the hike

New in Luray, just opened Bear Mountain Ziplines. Lots to do on the river in Luray. Wisteria Vineyards is a nice local one. Visit DiscoverShenandoah.com for alot of information on the top wineries to visit etc.

Dark Hollow Falls...fairly easy hike very popular. Not a spa but the "wright touch" in luray does wonderful couples massages on location or at their offices in Luray. see luraymassage.com

The Edith J. Carrier Arboretum at James Madison University in Harrisonburg (near Massanutten) is worth a visit.
