    Rock Town, or Harrisonburg, as it's now known, sits in the heart of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley and welcomes you to explore the local history the old fashioned way - on foot!

    A staple of any visit to a farming town is the farmers' market. Pick up fresh flowers, produce, farm-raised meats, and plants from April to Thanksgiving at the Harrisonburg Downtown Farmers' Market. If you're inspired by the natural creativity and hardwork around you, visit You Made It! to create your own pottery piece. It's a nice break for kids and adults alike.

    Court Square Theatre, an intimate venue, offers the concerts and plays one would expect to find in a larger locality. See the artisanship of the Valley at the Virginia Quilt Museum on Main Street. Delicately preserved quilts from the Civil War era are on display, and the Museum's home, the Warren-Sipe House, has a story of its own to share.

    Just one more museum stop! The kids will love the hands-on interactive opportunites offered at the Explore More Discovery Museum. The theater center is a favorite; princes and princesses don costumes and have their noses powdered for the big production! Mountain climbing, cooking and construction are some of the other fun spots in this kid hot-spot.

    Capital Ale House is a relaxing venue in Court Square. Grab a house special from this microbrewery to compliment your entree, burger or salad. If you seek a more upscale dining experience, try Local Chop and Grill House, offering the finest cuts of meat and the freshest seafood. Kline's Dairy Bar tops off any meal!
