Altavista Getaway

The grass is always greener on the other side, and sometimes we need a break from the hustle and bustle to discover what's on the other side of the fence. When you're in this state of mind, we recommend heading to Altavista, a charming small town where the folks are friendly, the attractions are many and the grass is always green. Spend an afternoon at the Avoca Museum, home place of Revolutionary Patriot Colonel Charles Lynch and an excellent example of 19th Century American Queen Anne architecture. Sample the delicious wines from Altillo Vineyards and Winery, and take a nostalgic browse through The General Store & Inn where you can buy candy by the scoop, Homestead Creamery milk, butter and unique souvenirs to remember your delightful stay.
