Come experience a valley nestled among Virginia's beautiful Blue Ridge. A land where majestic mountain peaks stoop to drink from the reflective waters of a vast highland lake, and circling hawks patrol ancient forests as they've done since the beginning of time . . .
This is Bedford. Ruggedly beautiful. Enticingly exciting. And teeming with history.
Experience the breathtaking beauty of the Blue Ridge from Bedford. It's a land of intense patriotism, where the National D-Day Memorial stands silent watch on a high hill overlooking the mountain valley that gave more of its sons on the beaches at Normandy than any other place in the country.
Enjoy hiking the trails of The Peaks of Otter, the Appalachian Trail and Smith Mountain Lake State Park as well as the George Washington & Thomas Jefferson National Forest in Bedford County.
Enjoy a trail of another kind — the Bedford Wine Trail — that takes you to wineries interspersed throughout this beautiful countryside: Peaks of Otter Winery, Hickory Hill Vineyards and White Rock Vineyards.
Visit Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest, his octagonal retreat and haven of solitude.
Finish each day with a relaxing dinner at some of the most delightful restaurants in Central Virginia or on a spectacular dinner cruise!
