Nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, Staunton is ideally placed for exploring all that the region has to offer. The downtown location of the bed and breakfast is within walking distance of many of the town's attractions, ranging from museums, libraries, and theaters to restaurants, cafes, and live music venues.
Staunton's Downtown Historic District is centered around a 'Main Street' that is lined with exquisite examples of Victorian-era architecture and historic buildings dating back to 1860. The south end of the district is known as The Wharf Historic District and goes back to the days of the first railroad with some beautiful old warehouses and other historic buildings of commerce. The entire downtown district is home to theaters, museums, art galleries, wineries, beer tasting rooms, music venues, and many restaurants for fine and casual dining.
Some of the town's best attractions include The American Shakespeare Center's Blackfriar's Playhouse, which is the world's first historically accurate Shakespearean theater where plays are performed by an internationally recognized theatrical troupe. The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and adjacent museum present a variety of exhibits from the pre-Civil War Shenandoah Valley and the Wilson era, and the Mary Baldwin College is a private liberal arts college for women with a picturesque campus.
There is also a variety of outdoor and recreational activities to enjoy in and around Staunton, including horseback riding, hiking and biking in the rolling countryside surrounding the town, agri-tourism adventures on the Fields of Gold Farm Trail, fly-fishing, kayaking, and golf.
