Experience Rappahannock County, Virginia, the ideal mid-Atlantic getaway destination, just 65 miles west of Washington, D.C. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia's Piedmont Region, Rappahannock offers scenic outdoor adventures, historic villages, friendly country inns, cottages and B&Bs, excellent cuisine and wine tasting at some of Virginia's best artisanal wineries.

Rappahannock County has the historic Town of Washington, founded in 1799, which serves as the county seat and is home to the five-star, five-diamond The Inn at Little Washington as well as seven other country inns located in and around the town which offer a variety of accommodations, and the intimate Theatre at Washington, Virginia.  The Village of Sperryville is located along the picturesque Thornton River at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The village is a popular dining spot, offering a selection of restaurants, eateries, an Internet café and coffee shop.  The quaint village of Flint Hill, approachable by several byways that wind through the bucolic countryside, offers dining, antique and specialty shops.  Other small villages include Amissville, Boston, Castleton, Chester Gap and Woodville, each with its own history and personality. The renowned Castleton Music Festival also takes place in Rappahannock County. Your getaway brings you close to nature at nearby Shenandoah National Park. Organic farms and specialty food shops support Virginia's buy-local, buy-fresh food movement.
