212 South Main Street - Harrisonburg, VA 22801
Some towns nestled in the scenic Shenandoah Valley are quaint and sleepy: not Harrisonburg. Trendy, locally-owned restaurants, museums, and art galleries connect historic downtown to James Madison University, creating one of Virginia’s first designated Arts & Cultural Districts. This 10-block walk passes the Virginia Quilt Museum, Explore More Discovery Museum, Harrisonburg Farmers’ Market, Oasis Art Gallery, and Valley Turnpike Museum. Downtown is the historic heart of the City. Paved in brick and surrounded by 19th and 20th century architecture, it showcases an urban flare with charming treasures. Court Square Theater hosts shows and foreign films while boutiques and lounges flow over with travelers and college students.
Harrisonburg is known as the dining destination of the Shenandoah Valley and for good reason! International restaurants adorn every corner. Local wine is made at CrossKeys Vineyard and patrons may purchase Virginia made wine in countless stores downtown that pride themselves on unique products.
Lodging in Harrisonburg gives variety a new meaning with its countless hotels, historic homes turned into contemporary B&Bs, and Inns. Just minutes from Harrisonburg you’ll find Massanutten Four Season Resort, a sprawling 6,000-acre resort. The region including Harrisonburg was known as the "The breadbasket of the Confederacy" resulting in a prime location for the struggle between Union and Confederate forces.
