The Town of Abingdon has been welcoming visitors for over 200 years. Located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Highlands of Virginia, Abingdon is home to historical sites and attractions, cultural events, great outdoor recreation and world class art venues.
Abingdon is one of those quintessential All-American towns that people are drawn too for so many reasons. As a Virginia Main Street community, the twenty block historic downtown area is a focal point for both locals and tourists. The main street is lined with restaurants, shops and attractions including Barter Theatre (the State Theatre of Virginia) and the historic Martha Washington Inn and Spa.
Arts and culture play such an important role in Abingdon and venues like the Arts Depot, Barter Theatre, Holston Mountain Artisans and William King Museum draw visitors from all over the country to town. The recent opening of Heartwood, Southwest Virginia’s Artisan Center and the synergy created by the art and cultural scene in Abingdon have made this town a destination for visitors coming to the Southwest Virginia region.
Outdoor recreation enthusiasts will love all that Abingdon and the surrounding area has to offer. Abingdon is home to the Virginia Creeper Trail a 34.3-mile rail-to-recreation trail starting in Abingdon, traveling through Damascus, VA. and ending just past Whitetop Station at the Virginia-North Carolina border. This multi-use trail provides hikers, bikers, horseback riders, and lovers of the outdoors a spectacular setting to enjoy nature.
