Your first stop - the Halifax County Visitor Center at 1180 Bill Tuck Highway, South Boston, VA 24592 to get your maps, directions, brochures, general information and race tickets.
Bring your appetite; Smokin' Jake's House of BBQ is "all good, over wood." They serve breakfast too. Or you could head to Spare Times Grill, a full service bar and grill in the World of Sports complex.
Thus fortified, stretch your legs with a stroll around downtown South Boston. Be sure to visit the "Crossing of the Dan" exhibit in The Prizery, which marks a major Halifax County contribution to America's race for independence. You can track the course of
