Pack up your tennis shoes, bathing suit, jeans and a light jacket as you embark on your outdoor adventure in the city of natural beauty…Lynchburg, Virginia! Bring your love for the outdoors and prepare yourself for non-stop adventure! Check into one of our fine accommodations as your adventure is about to begin. Rent a bike and get warmed up as you bike/hike over 8 miles of trails. You will encounter wildlife, tunnels, and the James River. After your first afternoon, it’s time to relax and have dinner! Enjoy eating in a historic train station, a luxurious riverfront restaurant, a downtown café or even one of our numerous familiar chain restaurants! After dinner, it’s time for more action & adventure! Head to Liberty Mountain SnowFlex Centre as it is the ONLY year round, outdoor, artificial snow slope in the Western Hemisphere! Here you can tube, ski, or snowboard on a challenging hillside complete with rails and quarter pipes until 1 AM. Wake up refreshed and maybe a bit sore from yesterday’s activities. After breakfast get ready to “hit the mountain” running! Enjoy Liberty Mountain’s 5,000 acres of biking and hiking trails with kiosks and maps. Or head to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Hike up the Peaks of Otter to see beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Another option is Crabtree Falls, the largest vertical drop waterfall east of the Mississippi River, is just 6 miles off of the Blue Ridge Parkway. After hiking in the morning, spend your afternoon relaxing on the James River. Rent tubes, kayaks, canoes, and even fishing poles, and enjoy “floating” the river. If you are still up for adventure, check out Rise Up, an indoor rock climbing facility. If hiking or biking isn’t your idea of adventure, Lynchburg also has “air sports” to keep you entertained. Enjoy a hot air balloon ride or a flying trike! With any of these options, you are sure to be deemed an “adventure seeker” and will love your incredible adventure in Lynchburg!
