A Celebration of Music and the Arts with InnVirginia

Friday, March 20th, 2015

Virginia is known for its history, its scenery, and more recently its wine, but these aren’t the only aspects of the Commonwealth that make it culturally rich. Its citizens are also patrons of the arts, both celebrating and participating in musical performances, theatrical production, and artistic exhibits. Check out these upcoming events, and don’t forget to book your room at a nearby B&B:

9 to 5—The Musical, Fredericksburg: Not only will you get to enjoy a fantastic meal of salmon-stuffed tilapia, manicotti, Shepherd’s Pie, or fried chicken, but this Riverside Center Production will also bring you the theatrics of actress Sally Stuthers, whom you may know as Gloria from All in the Family and Babette from Gilmore Girls.

The Jefferson Heritage Trail

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

The Jefferson Heritage Trail is yet another reason to come and visit the state of Virginia. The Trail, which begins in Charlottesville and ends in Lynchburg, is the perfect excursion for history buffs and patriots alike, as it focuses on the life, legacy, and home state of one of America’s founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson. After spending the day visiting historical sites like Monticello and the Oak Ridge Estates, travelers have the opportunity to indulge in a drink or two at one of the seven wineries located on the Trail.

The Jefferson Heritage Trail is the 5th largest wine region in the country, so spending an evening wine tasting and catching up with friends along the Trail is a must for any Virginia vacation. Or, for a more family friendly activity, look into attending a live theater production at Endstation Theater Company, Lynchburg College, or Live Arts.
