The village of Lovingston is friendly and beautiful in the winter. It’s convenient, too, as the village is located around a half-hour’s drive from both Lynchburg and Charlottesville. Take a walk along Front Street and enjoy viewing the large, decorated tree. Stop at Rapunzel’s Coffee and Books to enjoy the eclectic atmosphere, books, craft beverages, and of course- coffee! Stick around for the Open Mic night if you’re so inclined.
Warm up by the huge fireplace in Virginia Distillery Company’s tasting room. The folks at Virginia Distillery Company honor tradition; there is an onsite museum. Distillery tours are available to groups as well. Take a picture with their LoveWorks sculpture, which is located near the entrance of the distillery.
