Summers are for s’mores around the campfire, lakeside picnics, and lazy days lounging by the pool. For the more adventurous, summer means long hikes, bike rides, and nature walks. Luckily, there’s a summer vacation resort tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains that offers all of these things and more. Whether you want to spend your vacation hiking, taking in the local culture, or simply relaxing, here’s what you need to know to plan the ultimate summer vacation (plus, some pretty sweet summer travel deals!) at Wintergreen Resort:
Things to Do
Visit Vineyards and Breweries
Spend a day touring the 21 orchards, wineries, cideries, and award-winning breweries around Nelson County, Virginia.
July 4th Jubilee (with fireworks on July 3)
It’s a birthday party and Wintergreen is celebrating the Fourth of July with music, a block party, movie under the stars, chairlift rides, and of course, FIREWORKS.
Wintergreen Summer Music Festival (July 6-August 7)
