Like the rest of the state, Southern Virginia has a long and rich history. Tobacco was the mainstay of the economy here for generations, and the area remains primarily agricultural. If you are looking to stay in a VA Country Inn, you are sure to find one in Southern Virginia.
Fall is harvest time, and numerous festivals throughout Southern Virginia celebrate it. Visiting harvest festivals is a wonderful way to experience new communities. Listen to the music of local bands, see arts by local artisans and craftspeople, and discover regional food specialties.
Kings Grant Fall Festival takes place in Martinsville on Saturday, September 18, 2010. That evening, relax to live bluegrass music by Mark Templeton & Pocket Change at the Martinsville Historic Rives Theatre. The charming, historic town of South Boston has its Harvest Festival on September 25 – the same day Martinsville hosts its annual Oktoberfest.
The Danville-Pittsylvania County Fair takes place at the fairgrounds from September 17 – 25, 2010. If you have never been to a county fair, you’ll find it a fascinating and fun experience.

Exploring small towns is just part of a holiday in Southern VA Country Inns. Equally important is experiencing peaceful evenings on wide porches, awakening to the sounds of songbirds, and indulging in a breakfast fit for a hardworking farmer.
