Flag Rock Recreational Area

Reviewed By PaulBeve - Ridgeway, South Carolina

Had a celebration after a funeral in one of the rentable shelters. Liked it so much we are thinking of doing a family reunion here every other year.

Shelters including grills, electricity and a fireplace. Plenty of cover if it rains. Bathrooms a short walk away.

Good hiking trails and awesome overlook just beyond Woodburger.

We absolutely love to hike in this area. The trails are in great shape and improvements are being made each week. It is beautiful, peaceful, and there are LOTS of great photo opportunities! You won't regret going if you are looking for a fun place to hike. They have a range of strenuous to easy trails, depending on your needs.

Little Stony National Recreation Trail

Reviewed By Abh273

Little Stony Falls offers great views that are easily accessible with a fairly easy walk. There are three major waterfalls that all offer stunning views as well as fishing and swimming areas. The trail totals 2.8 miles, and I highly recommend the whole trail, however the three waterfalls can be viewed in the first mile of the trail.

Central Drive-In

Reviewed By Debbie_Collier - Big Stone Gap, Virginia

Central Drive-In offers a unique experience for those who have never been to a drive-in. It usually offers two movies at showing. They have a small concession stand that offers some pretty good food such as hot dogs, popcorn, etc. Very few drive-ins still around so I am glad this one continues to be open. Kids love it and it makes it easy on those who have a small child but still want to see a movie.

MountainRose Vineyard

Reviewed By Susan S - Buena Vista, Virginia

Beautiful vineyard and fantastic wines! Tour of vineyard was offered with a glass of wine in hand, and also a great country luncheon with homemade meatloaf, fried potatoes, soup beans, mac and cheese, and luscious cornbread muffins (not sure if that is always available as we were there on a special weekend), Opie and the owner spent lots of time talking with us, answering any questions and offering lots of history of the area.
