4. Farmville, Virginia
Not to be confused with the once popular Facebook game, Farmville is a town located along the Appomattox river and High Bridge Trail State Park. A growing community that still retains a laid back rhythm, Farmville is a great place to escape if you have a few days off.
Take a day and walk the High Bridge Trail State Park, which is approximately 4 miles long and ends at the historic High Bridge, or stay in town and check out the Farmville Historic District or the Sayler’s Creek Battlefield. Farmville also hosts the Heart of Virginia Festival every year, a festival that celebrates local traditions and offers a fireworks show. If you can’t make that, stop in on a first Friday of the month to catch the concerts and town festivities at Riverside Park.
