Visit Basic Necessities for a meal before the music starts and stay at the Afton Mountain B&B, The Mark Addy Inn, or Le Bleu Ridge B & B. Enjoy a wine tasting at Wintergreen Winery, or a craft beer tasting at Devils Backbone Brewing Company or Wild Wolf Brewing Company and spend the night at Wintergreen Resort on the mountain. Day Two: If your travels bring you here during the fall, you might catch music festivals like the Lockn’ Festival or The Festy at Devils Backbone Brewing Company , and you can always see local musicians perform year round at Rapunzel’s in Lovingston. Or, if you’re here in August, listen to great bluegrass music up at Wintergreen Resort. Indulge your artistic side at Valley Green Gallery featuring artist works and exquisite crafts. Or follow the Monticello Artisan Trail and visit local artisan studios for that special unique piece to take home.
