To mark the change in season, leaves and temperatures, stay at a B&B. They are a wonderful way to enjoy the fall foliage as they offer breathtaking views, a warm spot to curl up if the temperatures dip, and the comforting hospitality that you only find from innkeepers.
Care for a Scare?
October is synonymous for Halloween for many people, but for some the celebration of scaring each other witless doesn't last long enough. If you're looking for a scare-tastic October, there are plenty of events in Virginia to satisfy you. Plan a trip near Lynchburg and check out the Ghosts of Historic Lynchburg walk that's provided by the city's historical society; dare to walk the haunted trail at Beaverdam Park in Glouester; explore the past of Charlottesville with a guided through the historic Court Square, (the tour even includes a reenactment of the courtroom trial of Stuart Bailey); out in Leesburg, tour Oatlands Plantation to get a peek into our country's morally confused past and the ghosts that remain in its wake.
Indulge your Curiosity and Creativity
From craft festivals to celebrations of our exoskeleton bearing friends, Virginia is brimming with festivals and events that appreciate so many aspects of life. Let your creativity shine in the pumpkin carving contest at Wild Wolf Brewery in Nellysford. The Halloween Spook-tacular at the ever popular Wintergreen resort may sound scary, but this honoring of October's holiday is completely family friendly and full of diverse events. If you'd prefer to just relax, join the Barren Ridge Winery in enjoying live music, great wine and breathtaking views. A fan of music from ages gone by? Check out the soloist Resi Linton out in Luray that performs music from the 1930's up into the 60's in the Big Meadows Lodge.
Watch the Skill of Polo Horses and their Jockeys
Intense polo games, hosted at King Family Vineyards, are still going on in this beautiful month. These polo matches are held on Sundays, from Memorial Day weekend through mid-October and are free to attend. Stay with any of the many B&B’s in the area to make getting there easy.
