Front-Royal is a town located in Warren County in northern Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. It's approximately 70 miles west of Washington D.C. As of the 2000 census, the population of Front Royal was 13,589 residents. The Shenandoah River flows through the town and the entrance to the Shenandoah National Park/Skyline Drive is located here. Front Royal was settled by whites as early as 1738, and originally known as Lehewtown. At one time, it was also known as Helltown, due to the rough and wild mountaineers and river travelers in the area who came into town looking for alcohol and women. Today, historical attractions near Front Royal include the Stonewall Jackson Museum and the New Market Battlefield State Historical Park. Shenandoah National Park is long and narrow, with the broad Shenandoah River and valley on the west side, and the rolling hills of the Virginia Piedmont on the east. The most well-known feature, Skyline Drive, is a 105-mile National Scenic Byway that runs the entire length of the park along the ridge of the mountains. Almost forty percent of the park's land area has been designated as wilderness and is protected as part of the National Wilderness Preservation System. There are over 500 miles of hiking trails within the park, and other activities include horseback riding, mountain biking, wildlife viewing camping. Front Royal is considered to be one of the most beautiful towns in the Shenandoah Valley.

Heavy snows are common in the wintertime in the Piedmont region, while the rest of the state may receive only a fraction of snow. Cold air masses arriving from the Blue Ridge Mountains, especially during the winter, can lead to significant snowfall and ice storms from early November to mid-March. Thunderstorms are possible in all months of the year, but more common in the warm, humid days of summer. Although the temperature of Virginia varies according to location, it generally becomes increasingly warmer farther to the south. During the month of September, anywhere from 10 to 40 percent of Virginias rainfall comes from hurricanes and tropical storms.
