Checklist: Staunton, Virginia

Staunton, Virginia is a small, historic mountain town—home to just under 24,500 residents—that offers an array of authentic, local experiences. The main vessel of the town, Beverley Street, is home to a number of local shops, restaurants and friendly faces more than willing to point you in the right direction or even draw a map for you (yes, this happened). Continuously cruising the streets are Green Trolleys, picking up guests from the visitor’s center and giving them a leisurely tour of the city. History buffs can stop by Woodrow Wilson’s birthplace or sign up for a city tour at Staunton Visitor’s Center, but the best way to get to know Staunton is by walking through the heart of the town just like a local.
