The historic Town of Washington, founded in 1799, serves as the county seat and is home to the five-star, five-diamond The Inn at Little Washington, America's most celebrated country inn and restaurant. Christmas is the perfect time to visit!
Choose one of Washington's comfortable accommodations for your weekend stay. Once you're settled, a fine dinner at The Inn at Little Washington is a must. A media darling, The Inn has been featured by the likes of The New York Times, The Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle and Gourmet.
Explore art galleries and wineries today as they host special events and prepare for the holiday season. Rappahannock County's artisans are world-renowned. Geneva Welch has been commissioned for the private collections of Robert Duvall, Randy Travis and James "Bear" Brady. Might you come to own one of her pieces? Explore the other galleries, too.
This evening, plan to enjoy a show at The Theatre at Washington, Virginia, but before that, allow Chef Jim McCullough to prepare your dinner at The Blue Rock Inn Restaurant. Even though Chef McCullough is a Rappahannock County native, he boasts a diverse culinary repertoire from his time in Alaska, Mexico's Baja and other locales. Expect a satisfying, authentic farm-to-fork experience.
If your timing is right, wrap up your weekend in Little Washington with the annual Christmas in Little Washington celebration! It's a festival atmosphere with artisans, a "Hanging of the Greens" service, an old fashioned parade of homemade floats, antique cars, marching bands, a cavalcade of animals and the jolly old elf himself - Santa. After the parade, head to Stonyman Town Square for country and Christmas favorites and a wonderful bonfire.
