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 Harrisonburg to James Madison University, creating one of Virginia’s first designated Arts & Cultural District. This 10-block walk passes the Virginia Quilt Museum, Explore More Discovery Museum, Harrisonburg Farmers’ Market, Oasis Art Gallery, Valley Turnpike Museum, and parts of two National Historic Districts.
Convenient to Harrisonburg, Waynesboro, and Staunton, as well as Augusta and Rockingham counties in Virginia, and Interstates 81 and 64, the Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport serves thousands of passengers each year for both business and pleasure.
