Exploring the 471 square miles of unspoiled natural beauty that is Nelson County could take some time. The Blue Ridge Mountains, the George Washington National Forest, Crabtree Falls and the James River are only a few of the outstanding attractions. Unspoiled is definitely the word; you won’t see many traffic lights in Nelson County. You will, however, be able to fish the quiet streams, rest at a country inn, tour a vineyard, visit a multitude of unique shops and, of course, enjoy the magnificent scenery. There’s even a country resort where you can do everything from golf to skiing. Rich in history, Nelson County is home to such 18th- and 19th-century treasures as Woodson’s Mill and the elegantly restored Oak Ridge estate. And the county is within easy reach of many of Virginia’s most celebrated historical sites, including the homes of four US presidents and several important Civil War landmarks. This eTrail provides detailed information on sights, events, entertainment, shopping, dining, accommodations, and transportation in this area of Virginia.
