It's always playtime in Abingdon! Sometimes the play takes place on the stage at the famous Barter Theatre, where Gregory Peck, Patricia Neal, Ernest Borgnine and other entertainment giants have performed.

Other times, visitors enjoy playing in the great outdoors. Abingdon is surrounded by the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, which forms a massive wilderness playground complete with rivers, lakes and trails. The Appalachian Trail is nearby and the Virginia Creeper Trail begins in downtown Abingdon. Bike shops and shuttle services can get you on the trails quickly and easily.

If your idea of play time includes shopping, nightlife or live music, fun is always on tap. Main Street and the historic downtown district are filled with great restaurants and unique shops and galleries. A craft beer brewery and winery are nearby. Don’t miss Heartwood – Southwest Virginia’s Artisan Gateway where you’ll find crafts, gifts, local food and live music.

Lovers of arts and crafts will want to visit William King Museum of Art, the Arts Depot, Holston Mountain Artisans, and numerous downtown galleries and shops.

Located just off Exit 17 on I-81, the Visitors Center is open to visitors from 9am-5pm daily with information regarding attractions, events, lodging, restaurants, and much more.
