Appalachian Plateau Vacations
Washington, the national capital, is situated roughly 130 miles (209 kilometers) to the northeast of Appalachian Plateau, while Charlottesville is 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the north.
Staying in only one place, no matter how popular, can only ever give you a narrow glimpse into the wider rhythms and life-ways of a region. So be sure to explore Southwestern Virginia's other sights and attractions. Head 17 miles (27 kilometers) northwest to Farmville, where you'll find the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts and Longwood University.
Organise your transportation and spend some time in Lynchburg, a transport and retail hub for the area, situated approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) away from Appalachian Plateau. This bigger city has a range of visitor attractions, such as Lynchburg College, Red Hill Patrick Henry National Memorial and Liberty University. Candlers Station and Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest are a number of other popular places worth visiting for those who find themselves with time to spare.
If you're are lucky to have good weather while here, explore Southwestern Virginia's watery side. Canoeing and swimming are just two ways the locals like to cool off here.
Sadly, vacations can't go on forever, so when it's time fly home, head to the nearest major airport in Lynchburg, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the west.
