Say Hello to Summer in Rockingham County
Welcoming You Back...Slowly But Surely
On March 30th, Governor Roy Cooper's "Stay-At-Home" order went into effect bringing the entire U.S. tourism industry to a screeching halt. For the first time ever, we were having to encourage visitors to stay home instead of showing them all the wonderful things Rockingham County has to offer.

During our stay at home, many of us couldn't help but want normalcy back, but also wondered would there be a NEW normal? As we navigate through phase two, we are realizing the world has changed while we stayed at home. Masks are the new norm and hand sanitizer is our ammunition. Those southern hospitality hugs have turned into awkward waves hello from 6 feet away or even elbow bumps for the brave. One thing that has not changed, however, is the tranquil beauty of Rockingham County and the adventures to be had here.

So many of us are longing to get away but are still not ready to go far. Luckily, Rockingham County fits the bill for just that. Our rural setting and outdoor activities offers the ideal spot to step out of your reality while keeping you out of harms way. Many of our local restaurants have re-opened their doors with limited capacity as well as our winery, distilleries, and bars. Our hotels, Air B&Bs, and VRBO's are taking extra cleaning precautions for your safety. In Rockingham County, we are ready for you when you are ready to venture to a good place!
