Located at the intersection of Shenandoah National Park’s Skyline Drive, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Appalachian Trail, Waynesboro is Divinely Placed Among the Adventure, whether your tastes run toward biking, hiking and scenic drives, or paddling and fly fishing in the trout-stocked waters of the South River. The friendliness of our Appalachian Trail Community shines throughout our walkable downtown, featuring the renovated vaudeville-era Wayne Theatre set among shops, art galleries, and restaurants peppered with murals from the annual Virginia Street Arts Festival. Drink it all in with a stop at one of Waynesboro’s three breweries on the Shenandoah Beerwerks Trail or Blue Ridge Bucha, one of the first kombucha taprooms on the East Coast. Waynesboro has a long tradition of warm welcomes and rich cultural amenities to offer seekers that come to experience the beauty and history of the Shenandoah Valley and Blue Ridge Mountains.
Designated an Appalachian Trail Community and featuring the South River running right through its town center, Waynesboro’s convenient location is just the beginning of its enduring and invigorating charm. Visitors can explore historic sites, catch trophy trout, enjoy a burgeoning arts and culture scene, and “Live Like a Local” tasting local brews, savoring farm fresh fare or soaking up some fun at one of the year-round-entertainment venues or during the many annual events and festivals.
