Staunton is the perfect base from which to explore Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The city’s charming downtown is home to a vibrant arts and music scene, a sizzling reputation for local food and dining, and a cool array of independent shops and galleries clustered along the historic Main Street. After you’ve had your fill of outdoor adventure and scenic drives, enjoy a fun-filled night of theater at the American Shakespeare Center, step back in time at the Frontier Culture Museum, or explore the legacy of Woodrow Wilson at his presidential library and museum. Staunton delivers big time culture and small town cool – year round.
