Group Sales & Marketing Manager , Visit Staunton

Staunton, Virginia, is a perfect wintery escape for your weekend away from home.

Katie Campbell of Visit Staunton shares the best places to hike, celebrate the holidays, and cozy up with a glass of wine when you visit Staunton, VA.

#1 Outdoor Adventure

What are your favorite ways to get outside (even in colder weather)?

Hiking in the Shenandoah National Park

Shenandoah National Park offers hundreds of miles of hiking. Get your fill of scenic mountain views, breathtaking waterfalls, and the flora and fauna of this four seasons park. If hiking isn't your thing, sit back and relax as you cruise along one of the country's most scenic drives, the Skyline Drive.

#2 Holiday Spirit

What is unique about celebrating the winter holidays in your destination?

The American Shakespeare Center's performance of A Christmas Carol.

What makes it so special is not only the amazing cast but the unique venue. Performances are held at the Blackfriars Playhouse, which is the world's only recreation of Shakespeare's indoor theater. It is a sight to see and something that everyone should experience while in Staunton!

#3 Drink & Dine

Where is the coziest place to dine or get a drink in the winter time?

1924 - Bar at Hotel 24

The lounge at Hotel 24 South is a perfect spot to cozy up near the fire and gaze at the incredibly decorated lobby. Don't forget to get your picture taken in front of the Christmas tree while you're around! For those in the mood for a drink, this hot spot knows how to make a great Manhattan as well as other delicious cocktails.
