As this strange year comes to a close, we look forward to 2021 with hope and optimism. Everyone has been impacted in some way by the pandemic and we all deserve a little getaway after making it through this year. We hope you'll keep our beautiful slice of the Shenandoah Valley in mind as you begin to think about traveling next year. Here are some ideas.
Our New Year's Resolutions
The Waynesboro area is known for its incredible year-round hiking, but not everybody wants to brave the wind at the top of a mountain in the winter. If you do, more power to you. Check out the fee-free days at Shenandoah National Park; the first one is coming up January 18th! If frozen hiking is not your speed, click here for some less rigorous, but still invigorating outdoor activities that are fun in the winter.
We don't mean the kind of "better" where you have to count calories! Enjoy all of the truly amazing food that Waynesboro has to offer. Indulge a little. Try new things, like a brick-fired pizza from Lost Town Billy Pie in Basic City Beer Co. or a Caprese turkey burger from The River. And if you're still feeling a health kick, check out our locally brewed kombucha from Blue Ridge Bucha!
If you spent more time at home in 2020, you may have picked up some new skills (at-home haircuts or mediocre Sourdough, anyone?), but let's leave the teaching to the experts in 2021! The Virginia Institute of Blacksmithing has a calendar chock-full of fun and interesting classes to teach you how to make everything from knives to candlesticks.
Looking for something more laid-back? Check out the Art Journaling Workshop at the Shenandoah Valley Art Center and let your stress melt away as you fill your journal.
