September 04, 2019       Trip Ideas

Waynesboro is a charming community nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains at the intersection of Shenandoah National Park's Skyline Drive, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Appalachian Trail. Full of arts, history, and outdoor recreation, you're sure to find something you'll enjoy!

Fuel up for your adventure in Waynesboro with fresh-brewed coffee from The French Press, located right in the historic downtown. Next, wander through downtown to find the Shenandoah Valley Art Center, P. Buckley Moss Gallery, and the newly renovated Wayne Theatre, which hosts world-class music and drama performances. Be sure to check out the schedule before your visit to see what will be showing. 

Get a feel for the city of yesteryear at the Waynesboro Heritage Museum and the pre-Civil War Plumb House Museum. Sample local food and culture at The Green Leaf Grill, The Heritage on Main Street, and Stella, Bella, & Lucy’s. After lunch you’ll want to take in some shopping at the unique stores along Main Street and perhaps stroll along the picturesque paved Greenway Trail overlooking the South River. Don’t forget to cap off the day with a delicious frozen treat from Kline's Dairy Bar. Come discover “where good nature comes naturally!”
