Things to Do and See

You'll find that each Staunton neighborhood is rich in experiences. This is a walking city with shops, art galleries, and restaurants in a charming downtown. A recreation of Shakespeare's indoor theater, the American Shakespeare Center and Blackfriars Theatre presents the best of the Bard and other greats. Sample wine at a nearby winery after a stroll through the vineyard, enjoy the local microbreweries, and discover the freshest fruits and veggies along the Fields of Gold Farm Trail.

Living in Staunton, Virginia, is living in the midst of history. President Woodrow Wilson was a local boy, and you can tour his birthplace and admire his snappy Pierce-Arrow limousine at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library & Museum. Travel the Wilderness Road, which originally opened up the country beyond the Appalachians. Civil War sites also abound.

If you crave more history, or simply more activities, get on I-64 E; Charlottesville is just 40 miles away and Richmond is only 68 miles further. Both cities are perfectly situated for a long weekend spent steeped in culture and the arts. Alternatively, spend more time exploring the Shenandoah Valley, which is one of the lushest parts of the country. The Blue Ridge Parkway is famous for its stunning views, while Betsy Bell Wilderness Park offers hiking trails and mountain biking. Crabtree Falls must be seen to be believed, with its five incredible cascades tumbling down 1,200 feet.
