The tourism offices and downtown Main Street partners of Harrisonburg, Luray and Waynesboro, along with Massanutten Resort and Shenandoah National Park, have banded together to create the Mountains 2 Main Streets Passport Program, a regional initiative that engages and rewards Shenandoah Valley visitors.
The goal of the Mountains 2 Main Streets Passport Program is to entice visitors to “take the roads less traveled” and explore the many attractions that this area of the Shenandoah Valley, and particularly, its Main Streets, has to offer. To do this, the passport program rewards visitors for dining, shopping and staying in participating businesses within Harrisonburg, Luray, Waynesboro, and Massanutten Resort.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Get your passport. Request one online at mountains2mainstreets.com or grab one at participating visitor centers.
Step 2: Plan your stay. Use the Mountains 2 Main Streets website to explore lodging, dining, shopping and activities available in the participating areas. These businesses are also marked with a Mountains 2 Main Streets window decal and are ready to stamp your passport upon your arrival.
Step 3: Explore and Get Stamped. From the beauty and splendor of Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park, to the endless activities at Massanutten Resort, to the charming downtown districts of Harrisonburg, Luray and Waynesboro, you will find endless opportunities to get your passport stamped while enjoying the area.
Step 4: Send in Your Passport. Once you have received four stamps from at least two different localities on your passport, send it in for your chance to win one of four quarterly getaway packages back to the Shenandoah Valley.
