Fairfield Inn & Suites Strasburg
Travel Blogs from Strasburg
Today we went wine tasting, which is the primary activity in Fauquier County, other than anything to do with horses. I don't necessarily recommend going wine tasting where the other half lives, as the cost is commensurately inflated. The first winery we went to wanted $10 per person to taste five wines. The cheapest wine on the list was $24 bottle. After that, we just bought one tasting at each winery. The wines were good, but not, at least to ...
... enter for a drawing of various Shenandoah paraphernalia. Plus free Shenandoah University cup for first 300 in attendance—of which we might have been #1 and #2 (since I had heard about the free tickets earlier in the day, and was a little paranoid about what turnout might be. The home team park is one of several fields in the city park, and I wasn’t sure how many seats there were. Attempts to phone for information failed; line was busy all ...
... some smaller roads which are much more enjoyable in an RV. My nerves don't do well with the big trucks. There is just not enough room between us!
Our destination was Faber, Virginia at the DelFosse Winery. We learned about the vineyard through a cool website Tommy found called Harvesthosts.com. There are farms, vineyards, and other venues on the website that allow RVers to stay overnight. This would ...
... water. No water for the next 12 miles, and we still needed to eat and find a place to camp in a few miles. Found the perfect place, off trail a little ways, flat and no bumps! We had the tent set up in minutes, dinner was cooking and everything else was done! Pretty good sleep, minus the damn deer that seemed to circle the tent all night, one even came up to the tent, stuck his nose to it, and just stood there - breathing.......was kinda spooky. Tuesday, June 10 ...
... folks have for each other.
In Strausburg there's a museum with a replica of a railroad engine that was taken by the Confederates in the "Great Train Raid" early on in the Civil War. No, they didn't drive the trains down the tracks--they took them off the tracks and hauled them with horses 20 miles on a dirt road! Quite an impressive accomplishment.

The inn is located strategically near fast food & regular restaurants as well as a Food Lion grocery store with plenty of options. We arrived after 10pm worrying whether we'd find a place to eat but Food Lion and Rancho Viejo were still open. The Fairfield didn't have good breakfast options, but the room were clean and cool on a hot & humid evening after one of the biggest storms to shut down the mid-Atlantic states with widespread power outages, downed trees, and damaged cell towers on 6/29/2012. We coped and we moved onto our destination, Shenandoah National Park.
