Favorite Family Weekend Getaway

Belle Meade Farm and Bed and Breakfast is where I go when my family and I need to reboot or recharge the batteries. My kids love the lake with the rope swing, farm animals, hiking, or grilling out by the pool. The proprietors are lovely people, very personable, and basically invisible unless you need something.

Nest Picks

Copper Fox Distillery

Copper Fox Distillery offers one of the best tours in the Shenandoah Valley. You really get to see the entire process from farm to bottle. The owners are awesome, they really know their whiskey, and love to talk about it! Plus, the location is cozy and rustic.

Central Coffee Roasters

It’s some of the best coffee in the world. And for a buck a cup, it's the perfect place to stop for brewed coffee. Don't bother driving or even waiting at a chain in Warrenton.

River District Arts

You can really see what inspires our local artists and their creative process, whether it’s watercolor or oil, at the River District Arts. In this old apple-packing facility, you can visit 10 artist studios, an artisan market, and two galleries.
