Winter’s beauty is stark and stunning, and quite different from what you’ll find in the spring, summer, and fall. With the leaves off the trees, you’ll enjoy views you wouldn’t otherwise have, too. Add this to the already tranquil & peaceful environment we enjoy here in the Shenandoah Valley, and you have the perfect winter getaway just waiting for you.

To give you a bit of inspiration for your upcoming getaway, here are just a few of our favorite things to do in Staunton, VA.

  1. Go east for drives or hikes along the Blue Ridge on the Skyline Drive or the Blue Ridge Parkway.
  2. Many of the city’s best restaurants are still open and welcoming diners.  Did you know that Vogue Magazine actually considers Staunton the “South’s New Foodie Hotspot?” Try popular favorites like The Shack or Zynodoa, Chicano Boy Taco, The Depot Grille, or the Mill Street Grill.
  3. Enjoy a nightcap at one of Staunton’s many taprooms or wine bars, before retiring back into the comfortable accommodations at Steeles Tavern Manor.
  4. Make sure to plan in some time to get out and explore nature this winter.  There are plenty of great parks and hiking trails in the area, offering more than just a pretty and quiet afternoon. Winter is also a great time to spot some of the native wildlife that calls Staunton home. Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway are also wonderful areas to explore for this same reason.
  5. This winter is a great time to do a little antiquing in the Staunton area, too. Find all sorts of untold treasures at Staunton’s nine antique shops and markets, or take a short drive to Verona and enjoy the Factory Antique Mall, one of the largest in the country.
  6. Bundle up and enjoy strolling around the beautiful, historic streets of downtown Staunton. It’s one of our favorite things to do in Staunton VA, as it has been hailed as one of the “20 Most Beautiful Main Streets in America” by Reader’s Digest. From its rolling hills and gorgeous Victorian architecture, you’ll find plenty to admire.  You may even want to have some wintry fun on Instagram – there are a lot of local hotspots worthy of making their social media debut! There’s also a self-guided walking tour you could take of downtown Staunton.
  7. No visit to Staunton would be complete without visiting some of the area’s top historic attractions, like the Frontier Culture Museum of the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Museum. Both are currently open to visitors.
