Winchester or Front Royal

Hi,

I am planning our trip to Virginna and Maryland end of sept and into Oct this year. Which would be the nicer place to base from for a couple of nights Front Royal or Winchester before we move off to do the sky drive and down to Charlottesville. Living in the UK any local opinions would be appreciated.

With Thanks

I think Winchester appears to offer more than Front Royal, but that is an assessment reached as I drove by both towns (I haven't stayed in either place).

I would stay in Winchester as I think it has more to offer than Front Royal. Here are some websites that might help.

Hello

Front Royal, VA is beautiful in October. You are still in the mountains and tons of local wineries in the area.

If those are your two choices I'd definitely go with Winchester. Front Royal is a bit run down and in need of some serious renovation, which they're working on. But if you really want a cuter (and smaller) spot than either of those towns, try Luray.
