What’s the weirdest place in Virginia?

The article above outlining some of the strangest places in Virginia has left off one of the most peculiar in the state: the abandoned Renaissance Fair. It’s important to note, though, that it’s not really possible to visit the abandoned fair in person. For one, it’s completely overgrown and also happens to be on private property. Located near Fredericksburg, this quirky destination was once a replica of a small Renaissance town where locals could watch live performances. The fair was open between 1996 and 1999, when, because it didn’t get as much attention as expected, was forced to close.
