The Virginia Creeper Trail
The Virginia Creeper Trail is a 34.3-mile rail-to-recreation trail starting in Abingdon, traveling through Damascus, VA and ending just past Whitetop Station at the Virginia-North Carolina border.
One of Abingdon's oldest attractions is the legendary Barter Theatre, the State Theatre of Virginia. The theatre began in 1933 with one man's idea to have patrons pay with produce. Now it has grown in to a year-round theatre with more than 160,000 visitors each year.
The Martha Washington Inn & Spa

At The Martha Washington Inn & Spa, when you walk through the front door you might actually believe you've stepped back in time to the 19th Century. The fine touches and tasteful decor make you feel as if you're entering a stately old home.
Historic Main Street
Visitors come to historic downtown Abingdon for unique shopping and dining. Walk the brick sidewalks of Abingdon's 20-block historic district and you'll find architecture spanning two centuries, from The Tavern, built in 1799, to classic small-town American storefronts.
