Stanley, VA is right outside of Shenandoah National Park which makes it a great base camp for your Shenandoah adventures. There’s great hiking, wineries, small towns, antiques, caves, historical spots, all around.

We woke up early and checked out and drove an hour to Seward. We booked a boat tour that would take us through Kenai Fjords National Park which began around 10 am. We booked the tour that ended with dinner on Fox Island. The entire tour was about 8.5 hours and I’d definitely do it again if I went back. We got to see so much sea life and a tidewater glacier!
