Memorial Day Weekend – Front Royal, VA

We spent the Memorial Day weekend in Virginia. During our vacation we drove the entire length of Skyline Drive from Front Royal, Virginia, to Waynesboro, Virginia. We spent two nights in Alexandria, VA. We visited with my cousins, Vernon and Wendy, and their 2-week-old son, Aiden, on Memorial Day.

We left home, en route Front Royal, Virginia, around 12:30 PM on Friday, May 27 . We reached the Quality Inn Skyline Drive approximately 6 hours later. The drive (yes, we drove the car; we did not ride the motorcycle) was uneventful, although we did run into a few heavy downpours. I am happy that we weren’t riding the motorcycle through those heavy downpours!

As soon as we checked into our hotel room, we went to dinner. The hotel clerk recommended the Main St. Mill Restaurant, which was within walking distance of the hotel.

The restaurant was located in a renovated feed mill.

Here’s a picture of me that Bob took inside the the Main St. Mill Restaurant.

Memorial Day Weekend - Front Royal, VA

I liked the restaurant’s tall ceilings, exposed wood posts, the wood floor and the wrap-around wall mural. Bob and I each ordered a grilled chicken breast dinner. The service was excellent, and the food was good.

Our hotel was located about 1 mile from the entrance to Skyline Drive. On Saturday, after breakfast at the hotel, we left for our all-day drive on Skyline Drive (the subject of my next Memorial Day weekend blog post). Before leaving Front Royal, though, I took a couple pictures of the court house.
