Visiting Western Virginia

Across western Virginia the Appalachian Mountains prove to be an ideal stomping ground for visitors this fall. Summer’s dog days will have faded, and in their place, delightful fall colors and an excellent collection of events, festivals, and more to explore. Plan your fall excursion through western VA soon and make the most of your stay.

Cities and towns like Winchester, Wytheville, and Luray will yield full days of adventure. From their excellent local attractions – the Luray Caverns are particularly stunning this time of year – to the warm and welcoming locals, you certainly cannot go wrong there.

One of the premier events of the fall will take place in Luray. Visit on October 8th and 9th for the 47th Annual Page County Heritage Festival Program. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on each day, you and the family will be treated to food, music, arts & crafts activities and vendors, and a hay maze for the kids. All events take place at the Luray Caverns.

Your trek through the Appalachian Mountains in western VA should most definitely include some time in Roanoke. Experience one of Roanoke’s most anticipated kid-friendly events of the year on October 29th – its Zoo Boo at the Mill Mountain Zoo. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. you and the kids will find trick-or-treating games and events, costume contests, and much more. Make the drive in from nearby Radford for this spooky adventure.

The communities in and around Wytheville, Roanoke, and Radford will be abuzz with excitement this fall – it’s college football season. As you explore this section of western VA you’ll find one thing clearly evident – this is Hokies territory. Nearby Blacksburg is home to the Virginia Tech University Hokies, and this fall they’ll be hosting a wealth of excellent football match-ups.

Make your way to Lane Stadium in Blacksburg for the VaTech’s home opener on September 3rd against the Liberty University Flames. The Hokies will play through the end of November, and along the way will face some marquee teams. On October 20th the Miami Hurricanes visit Blacksburg, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets come to town on November 12th, and on November 26th the in state rivals Virginia Cavaliers visit Lane Stadium.

Out in Lynchburg, you’ll be treated to one of the fall’s premier musical events. Visit the Vines Center on November 12th at 7:30 p.m. to see the band Needtobreathe perform live on stage.
