Destination guide

Scenic charm below the Blue Ridge Mountains

In the shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Buena Vista is a quaint, independent city known primarily for its magnificent scenery. If you dream of sharing picture-perfect vacation snaps on social media, booking a Buena Vista vacation rental will likely earn you a fair share of likes and retweets. From scenic roads to charming storefronts to old-world homes, the area almost seems trapped in time—and that alone is a strong reason to visit. The picturesque George Washington and Jefferson National Forests border the town, lending it a bit of woodsy charm, too.

Things to do

Historic Buena Vista, one building at a time

The legendary Paxton House is one of Buena Vista’s most revered sites. Built in the early 19th century, the neoclassical property was built by a brigadier general who served during the Civil War. It retains much of its historic charm, and includes an immaculate yard. The historic Buena Vista Hotel, today known as the Southern Seminary Main Building at Southern Virginia University, was constructed in 1890 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Another architectural marvel, the Old Courthouse, is part of a cluster of 38 buildings in the Buena Vista Downtown Historic District.


The great outdoors, starring Buena Vista

Spending time in Buena Vista is enough to give anyone a new appreciation for Mother Nature’s beauty. The 315-acre Glen Maury Park is not only home to an Olympic-sized pool, but also a campground, tennis courts, and hiking trails. If you’re traveling with the kiddos, a visit to Penny Park is a must because it’s explicitly designed for them—soft grass and a cute little playground, anyone? There are a variety of annual events, including the Beach Musical Festival & Classic Car Show. In October, visitors congregate downtown to celebrate Mountain Day and the area’s natural beauty.


The perfect city for all seasons

When you book a Buena Vista vacation rental, expect pleasant weather—and plenty of it, no matter what the season. Summer is typically hot and humid, with highs topping out at just below 90 degrees in July. If you’re in town during winter, expect something less typical: a milder season, characterized by cool winds and the occasional bout of snowfall. Fall is a fairly pleasant time of year to visit; you can still enjoy the sights even if with an errant storm or two, and temperatures average approximately 70 degrees.

Natural features

Riverside beauty and miles of trails

If you’ve booked a Buena Vista vacation rental and want to experience more than just mountain life, make some time to visit the Maury River. It flows throughout neighboring Rockbridge County and into Buena Vista, where it shimmers gracefully as the sun sets over its rippling waters. The Chessie Nature Trail runs parallel to the water, also coming through Buena Vista. For a more localized option, walk straight to the Buena Vista River Trail along the waters and enjoy the sunrise from one of many forested points along the way.
