Riding the famous Route 11 roadway anywhere in Virginia is a road trip filled with nostalgia, beautiful scenery, quaint downtowns, and an array of diners, dives, and other roadside foodie stops. A drive down Route 11 in Virginia's famous New River Valley is an old school road trip to put on the drive list for sure. From visiting the shops in Radford (the New River City) to biking on the New River Trail from Pulaski to Draper, to floating on the world famous New River, driving Route 11 will only be part of the fun. Venture a slight way off Route 11 and visit the Claytor Lake State Park for a day at the lake and night in a cozy cabin. Be sure and visit the Draper Mercantile for a wonderful country meal or to shop for local crafts. Continue your trip on Route 11 to other nearby towns and attractions including Wytheville, the small town with a big experience, including lots of museums, shops, shows, and more Route 11 fun.
