From the Pennsylvania Turnpike (East) Exit turnpike at Harrisburg East Shore Exit, #247. Drive North on Interstate 283 to the junction with Interstate 83. Exit LEFT onto Interstate 83 (Signs will indicate "Harrisburg"). Exit right off Interstate 83 onto Second Street. Proceed North on Second Street to the third traffic light (Chestnut Street). Travel U.S. Route 11, which generally follows the path of the old Valley Pike. This will take you up the Valley - north to south. You may want to explore Rt.11 and enjoy a road full of scenic beauty as well as interpreted Civil War sites . Shenandoah County Tourism I-81 Exits 298 to 264. Take a side trip down the old Valley Pike (US 11). There isn't really a way "around" DC unless you went down 81 to 64 East. I suspect that route adds about 30-45 minutes if there isn't traffic around Baltimore or DC. Otherwise, the best route varies based on current traffic conditions and I would honestly say to check Gmaps from a phone or computer just prior to leaving.
