The Walton's Mountain Museum in Schuyler is a special blend of history, nostalgia and entertainment. Located within the building where author Earl Hamner, Jr. attended school, the museum displays replicas of sets from "The Waltons," TV series including: John Boy's bedroom, the Waltons' kitchen and living room and Ike Godsey's store, plus hundreds of photos and memorabilia from the 1930's era. .

The Oakland-Nelson County Museum of Rural History is Home of the Hurricane Camille Resource Center, featuring photographs, oral histories, videos and printed articles documenting the impact of the storm which devastated Nelson County when more than 27 inches of rain fell in six hours, causing 125 deaths and millions of dollars in property damage.

Pack a picnic, or pick a peck of peaches or apples. Visit three of Nelson County's spectacular orchards for fresh-picked peaches, apples, and other local farm produce including Saunders Brothers Orchard, Dickie Brothers Orchard and Drumheller's Orchard.

Democracy Vineyards features a contemporary winery building and tasting room, and Mountain Cove Vineyards is Virginia's oldest continuously operating winery.
