There’s Only One Remaining Soda Shoppe In All Of Virginia And You’ll Want To Visit

A trip to Abingdon, Virginia promises plenty of history, charm, and the lesser-known experience of old fashioned soda. Soda shoppes were once a sign of the times when during the 1920s, popular taverns closed due to Prohibition. In response, pharmacies opened with soda fountains to create a new social gathering place. It turns out there’s only one such converted pharmacy left in Virginia where you can still enjoy this retro treat.
