Explore Lexington and Rockbridge County
Grace House is the perfect launching-off point from which to explore Historic Lexington. Located on Main Street, Grace House is a short walk from quaint boutiques, unique restaurants, artisan shops, and galleries.
History buffs can explore the Virginia Military Institute and Marshall Museum, take a tour of Stonewall Jackson House, view Lee Chapel on the campus of Washington and Lee University, and see the final resting places of Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee.
Outdoor enthusiasts can hike the 6-mile climbing trail up House Mountain, culminating in breath-taking views. If a walking trail is more suitable, the Chessie Nature Trail offers a relatively flat grade along the former Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad right of way. Or perhaps a kayak or canoe ride down the Maury River is appealing.
Just to the south of Lexington is the newest Virginia State Park. Once owned by Thomas Jefferson, the 215-foot tall Natural Bridge spans a limestone gorge carved out by Cedar Creek. The surrounding area features hiking trails through beautiful forests, rolling meadows, and stunning vistas of the surrounding mountains.
