Rose Hill is 6 minutes from Lexington, VA,listed as one of the 20 best small towns to visit in 2013 by Smithsonian Magazine. This area of the Shenandoah Valley is beautifully tucked in between the Blue Ridge & Allegheny Mountains, both of which you can see from Rose Hill.
Lexington is an historic Valley Town. It is home to Washington & Lee University (W&L) and Virginia Military Institute (VMI), both Historic National Landmarks. W&L was founded in 1749. George Washington helped to endow it. After The Civil War, Gen. Robert E. Lee became W&L's President until 1870. He lies in a crypt in the beautiful Victorian Lee Chapel. There is an excellent tour of the Lee Chapel on the college campus as well as a superb small museum at the lower level of the Chapel.Walk among the historic W&L colonnade and you will feel you have returned to the 1800's. VMI, known as the West Point of the South, is right next door to W&L. Be sure to go to the Chapel where a huge painting of the battle of New Market hangs. The VMI cadets fought with valor in that Civil War battle. There is a very good Museum at VMI with lots of history of General Stonewall Jackson of the Civil War, who was a teacher at VMI before the war. Other famous VMI graduates such as General Patton, General George C. Marshall and many others are showcased in the museum. Also on VMI grounds is the George C Marshall Foundation and an excellent museum about him and the WWII area. If you are lucky you can watch the Cadets march in full dress on the Parade Grounds. Quite a stirring experience.
Both Colleges offer many public events, speakers, exhibits and other cultural and educational outings. Most are free and open to the public. You may find many noted public figures such as Hillary Clinton or George Romney speaking at local colleges. ( They did) as well as noted authors, artists, editors, etc. It is a great addition to life in the Lexington area.
The City of Lexington has also many historically preserved architectural buildings on it's photogenic Main Street. There are many old restored Churches , the Courthouse Square and Lawyers Row and Inns. Great shopping as you stroll down the brick sidewalks with unique local shops. No chain stores here! Great book stores. The Wall St Journal awarded Best Chocolate Store, Cocoa Mill, also took honors as the best chocolate in VA.
There are Great and varied restaurants such as the Red Hen which serves fresh gourmet food from the local area. The arts are alive with many great galleries such as Studio 11 which offers art shows as well as art instruction. Carriage rides, walking tours, ghost tours and other historical places such as the Stonewall Jackson House offer lots of American history. A great town to shop, eat and walk through history.
Just north of Lexington is the VA State Horse Center. Well worth a visit to see some of the best equestrian events in the mid-Atlantic States. Most Horse events are free. Amazing facility with outdoor and indoor Show arenas. Also out of town are several wineries such as Rockbridge Vineyard where you can enjoy their tasting room. There are also several local Breweries, such as Blue Lab and Devils Backbone, worth a visit.
They say you can hear live Bluegrass music every night on somebody's porch. Definitely you are in Bluegrass country.Just check the newspaper for where local groups are performing.
Very close to Rose Hill Home is the Virginia Safari Park a great place to drive through with your children and feed over hundreds of free roaming animals. Continue on driving to Natural Bridge, one of the natural wonders of the world. Also take in the Natural Bridge Caverns into the East's deepest cavern. You can continue on down Rt 11 to Buchanan and take a canoe or kayak ride down the James River with local outfitters.
Other great outdoor recreational adventures are hiking the nearby Mountains. We have a hiking book at Rose Hill for your information. There is also stream and lake fishing in the area as well as tubing down some of the smaller rivers or creeks.
Some more unique local attractions are Hull's Drive In north of Lexington. Great old fashion drive- in operated by a non-profit group. Also for the dirt track car racing there is Natural Bridge speedway where you can see some fun car racing.
To the East of Lexington is the small town of Buena Vista. There is a large golf course and public park, Glen Maury Park (often hosting Bluegrass musicians). It is home to Southern Virginian University.It is also the gateway to the Blue Ridge Parkway, a beautiful scenic drive along the tops of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The area is enriched with many historical, cultural and recreational opportunities - too many to see and enjoy in a one time trip. So we hope to see you over the years at Rose Hill exploring the many fun and unique qualities of this special region.
