Huge amount of square footage, easy to navigate. Lots of vendors and a very good variety of merchandise to see. Also, there is a tiny cafe in about the center that serves hamburgers and cokes. Restroom was well-kept. The staff will help you by storing at the checkout the items you want to purchase in order for you to continue to shop hands-free. It's a great place to go.

American Shakespeare Center

The Blackfriars Playhouse is the world's only re-creation of Shakespeare's indoor theatre. "Stunning", says Frommer's. Located in historic downtown Staunton, VA, this 300-seat Renaissance theatre offers productions of Shakespeare and classic plays year round that the Washington Post says are "shamelessly entertaining" and the Boston Globe says are "phenomenal...bursting with energy”.

While visiting Charlottesville, we saw that the Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton wasn't too far a drive, so we ordered tickets ahead for a Saturday evening play. After reading about the playhouse, we decided to arrive early to take the 11:00 tour of the theater & make a day of it. This unique theater rocks with everything amazing! Madison, an intern with the ASC, gave us an incredible tour of the theater - an opportunity to go behind the stage, downstairs, upstairs, everywhere, all the while learning about this incredible Shakespeare company & building. The play (Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead) was even more fabulous - hilarious & fun & intellectually provocative.
We will never forget the performance & the opportunity to visit the Blackfriars Playhouse. A five-star experience!

Fort Edward Johnson

Reviewed By Zephyr_Travel - Fredericksburg, Virginia

Stopped by on the way to the highland maple festival in McDowell and Monterey. The scenic view next to the parking lot is worth a quick stop. As the other review mentioned, the trail is best for it's historic marker story series and reconstructed civil war trenches. The best and most accessible view is in the parking lot. Their are other intersecting and close by historic trails in this national forest site. The trail marker next tot he bathroom highlights other hiking options. Don't miss the other marker sites on the state civil war trail further out towards the west virginia line on route 250.

Our family stopped in Waynesboro at the Zeus theatre while on vacation. We found a very clean theatre, comfortable chairs, friendly associates, and clean bathrooms. We purchased our tickets online and secured our seats. Even though it was a $1 fee for each ticket online, it was still a good deal for the matinee. We would not hesitate to visit again.

Trinity Episcopal Church

Reviewed By Taryn B

I was filled with awe at the beauty of the stained glass windows in this church! I had read a book about Louis Comfort Tiffany and his glass masterpieces but had never seen them up close. The church is open in the afternoons and it is free to go inside and wander around and take in the beautiful architecture and especially the windows. Such a treat.

Frontier Culture Museum

The Frontier Culture Museum is an outdoor living history museum that tells the story of the thousands of people who migrated to colonial America and of the life they created here for themselves and their descendants. The Museum shows how a new and unique culture evolved in early America from its roots in the Old World. Living History interpreters work in original and reconstructed buildings from Europe, Africa, and America to illustrate how diverse people and cultures blended together into a new American way of life. The Museum operates on about 200 acres with 11 major exhibits divided into 2 sections: The Old World, and America. The Old World exhibits show rural life and culture in four homelands of early migrants to the American colonies. The American exhibits show the life these colonists, slaves, and their descendants created in the colonial back-country, how this life changed over more than a century, and how life in the United States today is shaped by its frontier past.

We've been to many reenactment sites on colonial America, so weren't expecting much. We were wrong! This I a great place. What's unique about it is that they have two sections: pre-America sites from which immigrants came and the immigrant settlements in America. In the first section, you start with an Igbo village from Africa, then move on to Irish, German, and British farms. It gives you a good idea where they came from and what their life was before they arrived--not to mention, how they lived after they got to America. The "new" section ranged from the 18th to 19th century with actual buildings from the period.

There is a lot of walking here since the exhibits cover a lot of ground. But there are golf carts that you can rent to get around. Since I was recovering from a broken leg, this was the only thing than enabled me to see everything.

The one negative is that there is no food there, other than fudge or junk food. So be sure to time it right to see everything in 2-3 hours and not go hungry.

Now known as "Verona Antiques" the store has a nice variety of antiques, furniture, collectible glass tools and such, as well as not so antique items such as dvds, toys ect. Nicely displayed in a good sized building, with very friendly staff.
