Nelson County has something for everyone. Hike our mountains and valleys, kayak our rivers, drive the Blue Ridge Parkway and our Scenic Virginia Byways, sample award-winning wines, craft beer, hard cider or spirits at one of our Wineries, Breweries, Cideries or Distilleries, or find fresh produce at our many fruit orchards and farms.

Discover historical places like Oak Ridge Estate, Swannanoa, the Oakland Museum and Walton’s Mountain Museum. Family fun can also be found at places like Wintergreen Resort, the Montebello Fish Hatchery or Crabtree Falls, the highest cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi.
