Around Us

So much to see and do in the Virginia and North Carolina areas surrounding us!  What's first on your list?



These are just a few of the places to see in the area.  Click on one or more of the pictures to learn more about that area.  Also drop by the Galax Visitor Center for many more ideas.




The New River Trail and the Virigina Creeper Trail are the better known biking trails.



You can also hike the New River Trail and the Virginia Creeper Trail, but in addition, many hiking trails can be found along the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Also, you can hike in Grayson Highlands and Stone Mountain in North Carolina.  Feet, start walking!



Known best for Old Time Mountain and Bluegrass Music, you don't have to wander far to find some music to get your toes tapping and your hands clapping.  Best known locations in this area are the Blue Ridge Music Center and the Rex Theatre in Galax.  Yet just ask around and you will find so many more places where you can likely catch local musicians gathering for a little jamming.


Oh, and you may also want to wander some of The Crooked Road Music Trail and learn more about how music was and is the lifeblood of these mountains.



There are plenty of choices for every level of player with more than a dozen courses within 30 miles of the property and many more just a little further out.  Some of the most notable are Blue Ridge Country ClubOlde MillCross Creek Country ClubNew River Country Club, and Olde Beau Golf Club.


There are plenty residents who would be happy to join you for a round or even two!



No, we aren't talking about the ones out of the graveyards, but the liquid spirits that we most all enjoy. There are a plethora of wineries, breweries,distillaries and even meaderies throughout Virginia and North Carolina.  The closer ones are Mt. Vale Vineyards, Round Peak Vineyards, and Shelton Winery, but check the Virginia and North Carolina guides that name them all to find what is available in the area you wish to visit.  And most of us have our favorites, so ask and we will be glad to share!



Everyone has their favorite dining place to drop into on a whim.  And if you talk to your neighbors, you'll find a variety of opinions.  That's what we suggest you do and after visiting some of the restaurants in the area, we are sure you'll have your favorite too!

So Much More...


This is just a few of the many things you can do all around the area.  But to give you an idea of some that haven't been mentioned, here are more to consider.

Also take in special events such as The Old Fiddler's Convention and Smoke on the Mountains in Galax.
