The highlands of Virginia and surrounding region are among America's natural and cultural treasures. The Virginia Creeper Trail, the Appalachian Trail, White Top Mountain, Mount Rogers – they're in our backyard. Our neighboring city of Abingdon is home to the Barter Theatre (Broadway shows and outstanding live performances), the William King Regional Arts Center (fine arts), and a handsome downtown shopping district. A short drive away is Marion, Va., home of the historic Lincoln Theatre, from which the highly popular “Song of the Mountains” program is televised to the nation, and Tennessee's Tri-Cities, including Bristol, “The Birthplace of Country Music.”
