Why Everyone In Virginia Should Visit This One Small Town

We’ve talked a lot about small towns here at Only in Virginia. We’ve given you lists of some of our favorites, and you, in turn, have given us lists of yours. We’ve talked about small towns that offer big attractions, small towns that hold immense history and many of the reasons we love living in or being from a small town.

But we found one that just seems to have it all, right in the heart of Southwest Virginia. From some of our state’s earliest history to world-class entertainment, Abingdon packs more than you could imagine into a town of barely 8,000 people.

Here are some of the things that make Abingdon so special:

A fascinating backstory…

A rich history…

World-class entertainment, arts and music…

Historic hotels, fine dining and local beers…

The great outdoors…

And just so you know, we’re not the only ones that LOVE Abingdon…

Have you spent time in Abingdon? Tell us about your experience! Better yet, we would like to hear any small towns you know of that offer a special feature, unique history or that are just worth a visit! Let us know in the comments below.
