It's all here waiting for you to discover.

In the heart of Virginia, where the Blue Ridge Mountains meet gently rolling hills lies The Virginia Piedmont.  A region rich in natural beauty, American history, farmlands, quaint towns and inns, wineries and fine dining, the Piedmont is less than an hour’s drive from Northern Virginia/Washington D.C., Fredericksburg or Charlottesville.

Follow scenic roads through expanses of farmland, orchards and horse farms bordered by centuries-old stone fences.  Walk the main streets of the region’s historic towns and villages, and explore the restaurants, from casual to elegant, the galleries, antique shops and other stores.  Sample Virginia’s award-winning wines at the many vineyards of the region.

Relive American history as you walk the trails of Civil War battlefields, visit the home and 2,700 acre estate of President James Madison and visit numerous other historic sites. 

Hike or horseback ride through fields and woods or bicycle along winding scenic roads. Don your favorite hat and head to the Gold Cup races, a steeplechase or other equestrian event. Canoe the Rappahannock and Rapidan rivers or enjoy a leisurely afternoon of fishing on the Rose or Robinson.
