Once an industrious town, the former Basic City still has a distinct personality with treasures of the yesteryears concealed around every corner. Step back in time to Basic City Luncheonette, a Waynesboro institution since 1952. Or check out the classic cars tucked away across the railroad tracks in a part of Waynesboro that echoes the sounds of its working class roots. Plan a trip for May during the Main Street Muscle Car Show, retro fun for the whole family. Or visit in April during the Virginia Fly Fishing Festival on the banks of the South River. Waynesboro is budding with plans for a renovation project at the Mill at South River in hopes of creating a Center for Coldwater's Restoration which will include a fish hatchery. No matter what you're looking for Waynesboro is the place where old school comes naturally.
