No trip to Southern Virginia would be complete without immersing yourself in its picturesque surroundings. After all, the region is home to the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains and the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. Start with breakfast before you head out for a hike near the Blue Ridge Parkway. There, you’ll find numerous trails with varying degrees of difficulty.

After your hike, grab lunch in nearby Floyd, where you can fill up in eateries like Oddfella’s Cantina & Tapas Bar and Natasha’s Market Cafe. Afterwards, take a walk around Floyd — the town is known for its artisan culture and live music. When the sun begins to set, head to dinner at Elements at Primland. The restaurant is located at an altitude of 2,800 feet, giving you unforgettable views with your meal.

Post-dinner, join Primland for an evening of stargazing — you can sign up for the nightly star walk in the resort’s observatory dome or you can book the Tour of the Universe, which lasts between 90 minutes and two hours.
