Pick, Play, Stay at our Recreation Destination
Love quiet little towns? Take a must-see trip to Historic Downtown
Hillsville. First stop and try a wonderful early morning
breakfast at the Hillsville Diner. Venture next door
afterwards for a history lesson at the Carroll County Historical
Museum inside the Historic Carroll County Courthouse. Need a romantic
getaway? Stay with Don and Sherri at the Inn and Cottages at Orchard
Gap, a lovely B & B off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Take in a scenic
drive, visit Mabry Mill and a winery or two up the road. Don’t miss a concert
at the Blue Ridge Music Center.
Love the outdoors?
Check out Lake Ridge RV Resort. Plan to spend a couple nights
tent camping and playing around the pool and waterslide. Don’t forget the
paddleboats, fishing campfires, roasting hotdogs and making s’mores.
Carroll County offers two unique wineries, or should we say one meadery and
one cidery? Head out toward Dugspur to have a taste at Black Snake
Meadery and Foggy Ridge Cider. From Dugspur, you can
take a scenic back road to Fancy Gap to enjoy a picnic at the Devil’s
Den Nature Preserve and visit the array of quaint shops in Fancy
If you are equestrian enthusiasts, saddle up! Take a half day ride
at the newly established Crooked Creek Equine/Recreation
Trail. This trail is the first of its kind in the state. The Virginia
Department of Motor Vehicles has designated this 10.6 mile loop trail that
surrounds the Crooked Creek Wildlife Management Area as a
multi use recreation trail using existing state maintained dirt surfaced roads.
Looking for a longer equestrian adventure? Head ‘em out to
Kanawha Valley Arena in Dugspur for a week-long wagon train.
Kanawha Valley Arena is host to many seasonal events ranging from horse shows,
bull rides, and truck pulls. They have a little something for everyone.
With the turning of the season, September draws record crowds to Hillsville
for its annual Gun Show and Flea Market on Labor Day weekend. It is packed
with deals, people and food galore. Check out some local fare such as the new
Cabo Mexican Grill in the former historic Guynn Hardware store
or our new Mile High Burger Company located in the former
Nuckoll’s Drug. Both great eats!
Before you leave the area, be sure
you visit “pick your own” orchards Levering and
Berrier for some seasonal apples and peaches. After visiting
the orchards and getting your fruit fresh from the tree, your next stop is to
collect some locally grown produce at the Southwest Virginia Farmers Market off
I-77 Exit 14.
If you’re here in October, the climate is perfect and
the colors of autumn are painting the mountain sides. It is still warm enough
for outdoor activities. The peak colors of fall are brilliant against the
crystal clear blue sky. It has to be a little touch of heaven on earth.
Anytime of the year is a good time to visit Carroll County.
