Lexington, Buena Vista / Rockbridge County, Virginia

From one end of Rockbridge County to the other, you’ll find a landscape that stirs the mind, spirit, and intellect. The area is known for its history, charm, and scenic beauty.

Start your visit in Lexington, beginning first with the Stonewall Jackson House on Washington Street, the only home ever owned by Confederate Gen. Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson. From there you are only a few short blocks from Washington & Lee University. (Robert E. Lee was president there after the Civil War and is buried with his family at Lee Chapel & Museum.) Virginia Military Institute is right next door. Cadets give walking tours of the Post, starting at the George C. Marshall Museum & Library.

Ready for charm? Spend an afternoon strolling the pressed brick sidewalks downtown, browsing in the unique shops and galleries. From antiques to fine lingerie, stained glass to bestsellers, elegant pumps to delectable handmade chocolates, Lexington has treasures for everyone—and great restaurants, too, like the Southern Inn Restaurant on Main Street.

As for the scenery, it’s all around you! If you have an hour or two for something really spectacular, take a drive to Goshen Pass, an awesome three-mile-long mountain gorge formed by the Maury River. There are several pull-offs where you can get out and admire the views. To get there, take Rte. 39 west from Lexington (just north of the I-64, Exit 55 interchange, off US 11).

For more out-of-this-world scenery, head south of Lexington to Virginia’s Natural Bridge, a world-renowned rock bridge once owned by Thomas Jefferson, and one of the nation’s most visited natural wonders. You can make a day of it by stopping by the Toy Museum at Natural Bridge, as well as the Natural Bridge Zoological Park.

And speaking of zoos, you won’t want to miss Virginia Safari Park. It’s Virginia’s only drive-through zoo, featuring over 700 animals like antelope, zebra, deer, bison, elk, and many more. The kids will love it!
