If you love bluegrass and traditional mountain music, you must head to the Ralph Stanley Museum! The museum even has convenient on-site lodging.
Walk to the top of Birch Knob Tower for the best mountain views in the area. Climb up to 3,144 above sea level, and you can see Ohio on a clear day! The Birch Knob tower is a fantastic spot for your best vacation photos ever. Explore Cumberland Mountain Drive on State Route 611 (Virginia scenic byway) on your way to, or from, Birch Knob.
John W. Flannagan Reservoir and Dam are absolutely worth a visit. Watch fish swim over the rocky bottom or anchor your boat in a scenic cove and enjoy the wildlife on the shore. There's even a small waterfall... If you can find it!
