Looking for some family fun? The James, Rockfish and Tye Rivers each host a variety of activities: the Batteau Festival, tubing, kayaking, canoeing and floating – from ripples to rapids, we have it all. For a more educational hands-on experience, stop by the Montebello Fish Hatchery where you’ll learn the life cycle of a trout. Crabtree Falls is the highest vertical-drop cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi River. Featuring a series of five major cascades and assorted smaller ones, falling a total distance of 1,200 feet, this is one of Nelson’s most popular attractions.

Wintergreen Resort provides winter sports fans a thrill on the slopes with skiing, snowboarding, and tubing. Devils Knob and Stoney Creek golf courses, with their Blue Ridge Mountain setting, provide golfers with the coolest playing conditions throughout the summer and the most dramatic mountain foliage throughout the fall. Other year round amenities at Wintergreen Resort include tennis, hiking, mountain biking, a splash at Lake Monocan and many family-oriented recreational opportunities
